Our beloved mother, Clara Myles, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, Aug. 8, 2018, at the age of 70. She was a devoted wife of Leonard Myles for 50 years, a loving mother of Sheila, Twanda, Steed, Marva, and Leonard Jr. and a proud “granny” of 21 grandkids.

As a lifelong educator, Clara was passionate about helping people advance in life. She was a dedicated member of El Bethel Church under the leadership of Joel J. Kinlow.

She enjoyed reading and traveling and making sure her family was taken care of.
