Clara Sullivan came to Humboldt Co with her parents when she was 3 months of age. This county has ever sine been her home, here she learned the duties of home life, here the friendships of her early childhood, and her later youth were formed.

Clara was an ambitious bright girl and attended the country school at an early age. She soon manifested unusual aptitude for her studies and was so far advanced that in the winters of 1908 and '09 she attended the High School at Livermore where she showed such proficiency that she easily took first rank in her classes.

She formed many warm friendships there among her teachers and schoolmates but was compelled to leave school on account of illness from which she never fully recovered.

Clara was loved by all who knew her and her friendly, cheerful, disposition soon her friends everywhere.

No one has lived in vain if they set such an example of Christian patience and cheerfulness as this lovely Christian girl did even for so short a period as 16 fleeting years. One of her teachers.
