She was raised on her family farm near Centralia, Mo and graduated from Sunnydale Seventh-day Adventist Academy in 1968. After attending Union College in Lincoln, NE, she graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a degree in medical technology in 1972. Working in that field for the span of her career in Madison, TN; San Jose, CA and a number of laboratories in Central MO, she retired while working in clinical microbiology at UM-C Hospital.

She also played at a number of other churches in Cleburne, Texas, Columbia, MO, and San Jose, Calif.

Clare succumed to triple-negative breast cancer following surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and a number of alternative treatments that sustained hope as the disease progressed.
