Clara Smoot Kuhfuss

November 12, 1926 ~ March 28, 2021 (age 94)


Clara Smoot Kuhfuss, 94 of Glendale AZ passed away on March 28, 2021. Clara was born in Amherst VA. She is survived by her only child Karen, nieces, nephews, and friends. She outlived all of her contemporaries on both sides of the family.

Clara was raised on a farm in Virginia and she was raised to be a Southern Lady. She knew how to charm all. Her smile could light a fire in your heart.

Clara graduated from Sweetbriar Business School. She moved to Baltimore MD where she worked as secretary to a lawyer. She joined the Tower Club, a club for tall people, where she met her husband, John. They married and then had their only child, Karen.

Clara and John lived in Scottsdale AZ at the same address for 49 years. In 2016 they moved to Glendale to be nearer to Karen. One year later Clara’s husband John of 59 years passed away.

Clara was a homemaker in the true sense of the word. She took care of her husband, her daughter, cooking, cleaning, budgeting, accounting, comfort, nurturing of mind and body. She made the house a home. Clara was soft spoken yet had a great impact with her presence.  She was the calm in the home.

Clara, loving Wife, loving Mother, loving Aunt, and loving friend.

Private memorial services will be held.
