Clara Lee Grimes, nee Shoemaker, passed away peacefully on April 8, 2024, in Ammon, Idaho at the age of 92.

She was born on December 6, 1931 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Clara was a loving and friendly individual who touched the lives of many. She dedicated her career as a Secretary for Alan A. Rosner, CPA. Clara was a faithful member of St. Paul’s Methodist where she found solace and community.

In her free time, Clara enjoyed camping, bowling, reading, gardening, and being around her beloved family. She was active member of the Dora Erickson Elementary foster grandparenting program and proudly served as the past president of the NM State Photographers association.

Clara will be deeply missed and forever remembered by her surviving family: Rod Grimes, Mike and Susan Grimes, Diana and Jason McClellan, Collene and Alan Halldorson, 9 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren, and 3 great-great grandchildren. She is now reunited with her late husband Jack Grimes, daughter-in-law Suzie Grimes, parents, and 2 brothers.

A celebration of life will be held this summer to honor Clara’s memory. Buck-Murphy Funeral Home in Idaho Falls, Idaho, is assisting the family with the arrangements.

The family would like to thank the Gables of Ammon staff for their kind and loving care given to Clara.

Clara’s kindness and warmth will be cherished by all who knew her. May she rest in peace.
