Clarice was a lifelong member of Scotland Baptist Church, where she worshipped faithfully and prepared many meals for her church family. Most importantly , was her Lord and Savior followed by her family and church. Her favorite past time was preparing food and entertaining family and friends.
Clarice was called by many names: Mommie, Mamaw, Memawand Clara Belle. Her children whom she loved so dearly, and they in return, called her Mama.
One of our favorite quotes, and there were many………..was “I love all of y’all from the bottom of my heart, to the top of my head, and all that’s left over”.
