New Windsor, NY
Clara (Chiara) Rose Walsh, of New Windsor, NY entered into eternal rest on April 30, 2019 at The Kaplan Family Hospice Residence, Newburgh, NY. She was 90 years old.
The daughter of the late Antonio Marrantino and Adriana (Dorsa) Marrantino, Clara was born on December 16, 1928 in Manhattan, NY in a little neighborhood called Inwood, which she loved so much.
Clara was a retired Secretary for Dr. Chris Phillip in New York City, NY. She was an active member of Good Shepherd Church where she was married and a member of the Church Choir. She was also a long time member of Hudson Valley Christian Church, where she attended weekly bible studies and volunteered for almost every event. Clara was also a volunteer at St. Luke’s Hospital in Newburgh for many years. Everyone who met our Mom, remembered her for sure!
A family statement reads: “Clara was a strong faithful woman of God, a Prayer Warrior, a Great Mom, Grandma, and Great-Grandma. She was a loving wife and is now happily joined again with her husband, John after 35 years”. She will be missed greatly.
