Celebration of Life for Claire Harrison


Claire (Macomber) Davis Harrison

Born on August 16, 1927 in Attleboro, Claire was the daughter of Goldie Ophelia Davis and Clinton B. Davis. At age 12, her family moved to Wrentham where they owned the “Davis Store” and where Claire went to school and graduated as Valedictorian from Wrentham High School. She graduated from Pembroke College, Brown University, in 1949. Married to Bradford S. Harrison for fifty years, she lived in Plainville where they raised their children and where she taught Music in the Elementary schools until retiring in 1989. She was both a Cub Scout Den Mother and Girl Scout leader, and a devoted and creative mother who taught her children to love books, music, and the outdoors.
Claire was an active member of the Original Congregational Church of Wrentham since 1940, where she served on or in nearly every board and position, sang in the choir, often as soloist, for fifty years, and played in the handbell choir. She was also a member of the North Attleboro Historical Society, serving as Curator from 1993-2009. Many students will remember her giving tours and baking cookies in the Woodcock-Garrison House kitchen.

She will be remembered for her elegance and grace and her musical presence in our lives.
The family invites you to calling hours on March 15 at Ross’s Funeral Home, 135 South Street, Wrentham, from 4-7, and a Celebration of Life at The Original Congregational Church, 1 East Street, Wrentham, at 11:00 on March 16. Donations in her memory can be made to the Original Congregational Church of Wrentham.  Graveside service will precede the Celebration of Life at 10:15am at the Wrentham Centre Cemetery.
