Susan Clara Obituary

Susan Spencer Page Clara, 72, of Petoskey, MI passed away on Jan 23, 2024 in her home. Susan was born on July 18, 1951 to Elizabeth Spencer Page and Wendell Page, both deceased, and grew up in East Lansing, MI. She enjoyed summers in Northern Michigan at her family’s Bay View cottage, where she attended Club, sailed, swam and made life-long friends. 

She attended Central Michigan University and graduated in 1973. She later went on to get her Masters of Social Work from the University of Michigan.  She had a long career as a social worker with Community Mental Health of Tuscola County, retiring in 2005. She continued her passion for social work after moving to Northern, MI working for North Country Community Mental Health.

A beautiful person with a feisty spirit, she was quick to laugh, loved doing crossword puzzles, gardening, skiing, photography and reading. She volunteered and chaired many philanthropic organizations throughout the years including United Way, Manna, The Crop Walk, Crouse Chapel in Bay View and Bay View Memorial Gardens.  She was a naturally talented artist and had a flair for interior design. 

Susan is survived by husband Randy Clara of Petoskey, her children Molly Hauxwell Currier (Craig) of Harbor Springs, Peter Hauxwell of Petoskey, and Paul Clara (Stephanie) of Alanson, her sister Wendy Page-Echols (Will) of Vanderbilt, two nephews Robin Page-Echols (Corvallis, OR) and Ian Page-Echols (Seattle, WA), as well as her granddaughter, Avery Currier, of Harbor Springs, and great nephew Rowan Page-Echols (Corvallis, OR).

A small private service will be held for the family in the coming weeks. A celebration of life will be held at 10:30 a.m. on July 18, 2024 at Crouse Chapel on Bay View’s campus in Petoskey, MI followed by the scattering of ashes at Bay View Memorial Gardens and a luncheon at The Bay View Inn.
