Claire Warren was 91 years old and a Valentine's baby because she had a "Big Heart." She loved and served others her whole life. She gave everything to her family. To describe our mother, a person would have to use every beautiful word in the dictionary and a few that are only found in the heart. A mother is someone amazing, wonderful and wise. She is a source of so much pride and the "center of the family love." This was our mother - "Love in all her beauty!" You will be missed mama by everyone who knew your specialness. All the children at Forest Lake Baptist will miss you after 50 plus years of service of love! You were the last of your generation to go - what a party that is waiting on you! Pallbearers will be Ryan Swanger, Ben Swanger, Chris Goad, Paul Ryan, Frank Ryan, Robert Lyons, Johnnie Lyons, and Mike Skelton. Honorary pallbearers are Forest Lake Church members and friends, Shirley Walker, neighborhood neighbors, Heritage Healthcare & Rehab staff and residents, Mary Freeman, Kate Cunningham, Brenda Hughes and Debbie Pinkston. All nieces and nephews of Claire Warren were her children.
