Clemmie was a member of Immaculate Conception Church – Saint Mary. She was a wife of a successful farmer, and worked at Prince Gardner Billfold factory. She was an avid gardener of flower gardens that would qualify to be featured in Southern Living Magazine as well as a prize winning pie maker, especially her coconut cream pies and homemade donuts. 

She loved to shop, dress up, take trips to visit children and grandchildren. She enjoyed playing cards with friends and neighbors and enjoyed the exciting trips to the boat, Vegas, and Laughlin. She cooked delicious meals for family and celebrated Christmas with her whole family at her house every year with presents for all. Most of all she loved spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
