Fred and I were fortunate enough to share thirty-eight years of marriage from March 14, 1981 to April 12, 2019. During the first five months we celebrated the weddings of daughter Christy to CP Dunbar, son Layne Clemenz to Rebecca Lucas and Kimberly Clemenz to Chuck Bowen. In 2014, son Bryan Clemenz married his wife Olana Over the years we enjoyed many special occasions including graduations, honors, and holiday celebrations but more fullfilling the births of thirteen grandchildren and four great grandchildren. We survived the building of our dream home on Lake Murray where we lived for thirty years before moving to Hilton Head. While living on the lake we had great times boating, skiing, playing tennis, gardening and entertaining friends. Fred loved traveling and we took many trips. We especially enjoyed traveling around the world with the American Medical Tennis Association. Cruises were also one of his favorite things to do. We took our last cruise in August of 2018. Of course it was a bridge cruise. Duplicate bridge was another priority for him and he achieved ACBL Silver Life Master ranking. It was a close second to his love of reading history, biographies and was most astute regarding world news.
I miss him so much but am thankful for the best gift he left me which is the gift of family. As much as I love and miss him I find great comfort in their love.
