Obituary of Clara E. Grove
Clara Ellen (Hanggi) Grove, 88, of Naples NY, passed away quietly on Thursday, April 11, 2019 at The Homestead Care Facility in Penn Yan where her caregivers adored her.
Clara was born in 1930 in the town of Naples to the late Albert and Clara Hanggi. She was known by most as "Chubby."
In addition to her parents, she is also predeceased by her husband: James Grove; her daughter: Rebecca (Grove) Conard; and siblings: Herbert, Robert, Donald, Alberta, Rita, Albert and Samuel.
Clara "Chub" Grove is survived by her sister: Louise (Roger) Potter; sons: Jim "Peach" Grove (Mary Ann Paulsen) & Douglas (Denise) Grove; her daughter: Tina (Joe) Norman and step daughter: Michaela Mohr; her grandchildren: Bill (Carrie) Grove, Katresa (Mike) Foster, James Grove, Libby Grove, Remington Norman; her great grandchildren: Charlie & Grady Grove and Finley & Dawson Foster; former daughter-in-law: Vickie Grove; sister-in-law: Charlotte Hanggi; brother-in-law: Richard Reisenberger and many nieces, nephews & cousins.
In her kitchen, where she was most at home, Chub loved cooking for family and friends, creating meals that were legendary; her pies, cookies and cakes were second to none. Chub also enjoyed church, traveling in the motorhome with her husband Jim and spoiling the grandchildren.
Chub, Mom, Gramma will be sorely missed by all that knew her.
Friends are encouraged to join the family for a celebration of Chub's life on April 28th from 12-4 pm at the Maxfield Hose Company Bingo Hall on Maxfield Road in Naples.
