Message: It is so sad to think that such a vibrant, spirited woman is gone. She was an inspiration to many in our family. I know that my late mother, Ann Sobel, adored her aunt Clara. I will always remember her for some quirky things - her sunglasses, the way she called everyone "dear", yoga before it was the "in" thing to do, the saying, “At any rate….”, that explosive laugh, her delicious cooking (especially when she introduced us to thai food for the first time). She was a maverick... a forward-thinking person who had a zest for life and learning. Because my children, Alison and Stefan Schumer, never met my mother and grandmother, I am grateful that they knew their great-great-aunt Clara. They remember her as a bright, funny, and charismatic person. I was proud to show her off. Her legacy will live on and she will be very missed.

Message: We will hold dear our memories of Clara for the short time we knew her. There was allot to learn from that Lady and will never forget her Hat boxes that I just had to snoop in. Rest in peace Clara. You were wonderful to get to know and I am glad we did. Shelley and Warren Goess (neighbors on Shuttle Meadow)

Message: Growing up in New Britain, the Weiss Family was always a presence as long as I can remember. Irving made my first pair of glasses when I was 8, and fitted me for my first contact lenses when I was 16, saving me from going on truly "blind dates." Irving and Clara were active in so many things with my parents Myron and Lillian Birnbaum, including of course sharing their love of music. After my father died, and when my mother spent 2 unexpected months in the New Britain General Hospital ICU, it was Clara, herself always just in and out of the hospital, who watched out for me and my sister Joan (Krasnoo) during those trying months.. even taking me home from the hospital for dinner when I found myself alone in New Britain. Before their health deteriorated, Clara would call my mother for rides when her license was unexpectedly restricted...and of course, Clara swore my mother to secrecy about how old Clara was on her 100th birthday. My mom is now living in North Andover, MA near my sister Joan (I am in Hastings on Hudson, NY, just north of nyc) -- Joan very much wanted to bring mom to the funeral, but mom is no longer able to travel. The entire Birnbaum family sends their love and condolences to Andy and Jonathan and the rest of the family and hope to keep hearing more stories from you great writers about all your wonderful accomplishments and adventures -- Clara was so proud of your all and I know is there with you on all of them in spirit.
