Claire E. Clancy Resident of Lafayette A beautiful bright light in our lives went out, Claire Clancy. Life will never be the same for many without her in our lives. Claire passed away Sunday May 20, 2012 surrounded by her family and friends. After a 30 year private yet valiant battle with cancer she is a proven strong and courageous soul. Claire grew up in Walnut Creek. She received a BA in English from U.C. Berkeley. In 1974, she married and selflessly devoted her life to her husband, daughter, family and her community. Upon the tragic death of her mother, Elizabeth she became the matriarch of the family, left to be a mother to grown yet younger siblings Dennis, Diane and Lance. She by all standards was the hostess with the mostess. Throwing the most memorable events that were talked about for years to follow for which she did it all herself, each party out doing the previous. Many may remember her as the woman behind the man at Security Pacific Real Estate. Her husband the co-founder and president of the company, she was the party planner extraordinaire keeping the family spirit throughout. There was not a craft she hadn't mastered.many of which she imagined herself. The products of which she shared with all and there was not a request that went unfulfilled. As a master candy maker, Claire's Confection's were craved by many. She was involved with such community groups as Friends of the Lafayette Library and Las Trampas Incorporated. Back when her daughter attended St. Perpetua's school, she played a large part in starting the school's hot lunch program, chairing the carnival and was her daughter's girl scout and brownie troop leader. Her daughter notes that there was not a day in 8 years that she was not first in the carpool line. She was also known as "the horse show mom". Throughout her daughter's equestrian career she was a horse show mom to manyagain with her parties, crafts and support. She is survived by her loving husband of 38 years, Richard J. Clancy, daughter Taryn Clancy Leslie (Clint), niece (who she raised as her own) Katrin Thatenhurst, Stepchildren Cindy Clancy Reed (Mike), Michael R. Clancy (Ilene) and her grandchildren Maron Elizabeth Leslie, Megan Reed (Scott), Natalie Reed Heckaman (J.D.), Daniel Clancy & Eryn Clancy.
