Mrs. Durante had a long career as a seamstress, working for several companies, before retiring from Hilton Manufacturing in Linden in 1983. A talented gardener, and passionate about cooking, Clara cherished nothing more than time spent with her family and friends.

Mrs. Clavedina Durante was predeceased by her husband, Michele Durante, and by her brothers, Filiberto and Giovanni, and sister, Emma.

She is survived by her son, Vincent Durante and his wife Carol of West Chester, PA; by her beloved grandchildren, Mark, Diane, and Andrew (Laurie); by her sister, Dina in Buenos Aires, Argentina; and by cousins, nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be from 2-4 & 7-9 pm Friday March 2nd at the Dooley Colonial Home 455 Westfield Ave., Westfield. The funeral mass will begin at 11am Saturday in Holy Trinity R.C. Church in Westfield. Entombment will follow in Graceland Memorial Park, Kenilworth, NJ. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions would be appreciated to Holy Trinity Church 315 1st Street Westfield, NJ 07090.
