Mom was known by many titles, but her favorites, which she earned with love and devotion, were: Mom, Grandma, Grammie Whitehair, Bubbie, Aunt Clare, Sister, and friend. She was known for her great wit, intelligence, kindness and fierce devotion to her family.
She believed in hard work, taught that work ethic to her children, and never started a job that she didn’t finish. She began her first job at the age of 12, standing on a crate to reach the sink to wash dishes. After working at many jobs throughout her life, she retired from First Security Insurance where she was a well-respected personal lines insurance sales/service representative.
Mom had many hobbies including gardening, painting, music, dancing, and caring for her pets. She enjoyed reading, traveling, family history, and took pride in making her home a place where family and friends wanted to be.
