Clo enjoyed spending time with her 3 children, 8 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. She enjoyed preparing large holiday dinners and always believed “the more the merrier”.
Clo absolutely loved to travel. Clo and Earny spent a lot of time traveling in their RV and Clo so fondly remembered her trips with her sisters and their families, and the trips that her friends were able to go on with them. Clo and Earny were able to travel to many states and wintered in Arizona for many years.
Clo was also able to travel to Europe two times, including her favorite country Ireland. She also was able to travel to England, Scotland, France, Switzerland, Italy and the Mediterranean.
Clo and Earny spent many weekends and holidays camping in the Bear Paws and were also members of the Blue Horizon RV Club where they met and became good friends with many people.
Clo worked for Lloyd Kelly at the Music Center in Havre for 17 years and for Audry Meiwald at the Mushroom Shop for numerous years.
