On January 2, 1954, she married the love of her life, Ernest W. Valentine, in Walton, NY. They were married for 61 wonderful years before he predeceased her on January 12, 2015.

The kids loved going trick or treating at “Mrs. Valentines” on Halloween. She also was a Girl Scout leader and was active in the Presbyterian Church. A hard worker in everything she did, lending a hand to anyone who needed it, Clarice always put others needs before her own. She loved to bake and always had homemade cookies available, ready to give to anyone who dropped by. More than anything else, Clarice loved her family.
