Clara was the middle child of three children to Michael McKenzie Spinks and Clara Lillian Yarborough, with an older brother, Henry Spinks, and a younger sister, Juliet Spinks Mote, that unfortunately all predeceased her. She grew up at the United Methodist Children’s Home in Decatur, Georgia and welcomed many adventures around Decatur and Avondale and surrounding areas. Clara’s favorite things in life were spending time with family and friends, baking (there will never be a better coconut cake), and anything involving water, specifically the ocean. She was a devoted member of the Order of the Eastern Star – Stone Mountain Chapter. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in Clara’s memory to Wellroot (formerly the United Methodist Children’s Home) at www.wellroot.org.
