Clara Ann DeDonato, 73, of Girard, passed away peacefully on June 15, 2021, at her home, with her loving family by her side. Clara was born July 27, 1947, in Port Huron, Michigan. She was a woman of great faith, and her spiritual journey led her to many different churches over the years. Clara was devoted to caring for her family all her life. 

She enjoyed playing cards, reading, ceramics, fishing, gardening, and was a lover of all kinds of animals, especially her stray cat she took in, that spent her final days not leaving her side. Clara was an excellent cook and baker, and enjoyed welcoming everyone to her table. She was a fun person to be around and made everyone laugh. She lived a life full of love, who would do anything for anyone, and will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her.
