Claire Viola Newton was born on December 9, 1922 in Brooklyn, New York, the daughter of Neville and Beatrice (Duncan) Meyers. After 60 years in New York, she and her husband Earl moved to the Ahwatukee Foothills of Phoenix, Arizona, where she resided for the past 27 years. Claire was an active member of the community and parishioner of Corpus Christi Church. Claire had unmatched kindness and honesty that endeared everyone she ever met to her instantly. She also had a million-dollar smile that lit up every room she walked into. The Lord called Claire home on May 3, 2021. She is survived by her daughter, Dorry Davis and granddaughter, JoAnn Davis. Claire also leaves behind beloved family members, Wayne Piggot, Nicole Hall, Karen Greene, and Farah and Jourdan Sutton. Beyond family, Claire has many friends, too many to mention by name, from near and far. The family expresses deep gratitude for these friendships throughout the years.
