March 25, 1930 ~ October 7, 2015
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Clara Mae (Lockridge) Delperdang. She was born March 25th, 1930 and passed away on October 7th, 2015. She has been a lifelong resident of California, with the last 60 years residing in the South Bay. Clara was a medical transcriber for many years at Little Company of Mary and also worked locally in Torrance for many Orthopedic Surgeons.
Clara was unfortunately diagnosed with Dementia/Alzheimer's in 2003 and struggled for over 12 years and finally succumbed to her illness this past week. Clara was a beloved Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother and friend and will be missed immensely by the people who were lucky to have known her.
Clara was a loving mother to her five children (and their spouses): Judy (Bill), Bill, Jeanne, Carol (Bill) and Nancy. Clara is also survived by her loving husband of 55 years Willis Delperdang. Clara's heart was also with her 9 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.
Please join us in remembering Clara with a service at Rice Mortuary Saturday October 17, 2015 - Service will begin at 1pm
