Mrs. Clara (Scott) Anderson was born October 20, 1917. She was 99 years old when she passed away. Clara married Charley Anderson in 1943 and shared her life with him for many years. She was an amazing cook and enjoyed being of service to others. She loved people and generously shared whatever she possessed with family, neighbors, and friends. Clara and her husband Charley were business owners and visionaries. They opened several eateries, which were hailed as the best barbeque joints in all of the local area. Their partnership lent itself to always being remembered as the owners and operators of the 1st “Black Motel and Grill” in “Shiney” Minden. Mrs. Clara lived a wonderful life, taking yearly vacations and traveling to Hot Springs, Arkansas for rejuvenation.
Some of my personal reflections:
- She supported school activities and school fundraisers
- She purchased my first pair of eye glasses
- She allowed me to drive her brand new baby blue 1959 Thunderbird all over the city. It was such a cool vehicle.
- She always sent delicious food to our family and enhanced our annual Christmas celebration
- She provided a color television for the neighbors and our family to enjoy
- She had one of the most fashionable homes in her neighborhood; customized to reflect her high standard of living
Mrs. Clara Anderson exemplified a quiet and gentle spirit. She leaves fond memories with relatives Ronald Little of Roseville, California and Patricia Kennon Mouton of Lafayette Louisiana.
