BRABEC, CLAIRE  
BRABEC--Claire. Claire Brabec passed away peacefully at her home in New York on December 4, 2014. Claire (whose professional name was Claire Monette) was an interior decorator by profession and was also responsible for designing and decorating the sets for the new product industrial shows produced by her beloved husband Erv Brabec and his company Marketing Concepts, Inc. Prior to that, she had a career as a singer and dancer. Claire and Erv married, travelled the world together and there could not have been two people who were more suited for each other as their love was an inspiration to everyone who knew them. No one will ever forget how the two of them celebrated the joys of Christmas and the sharing of presents with family and friends. It was always a truly remarkable, happy and very special day. After her husband's death in 2000, Claire continued her designer activities, participated as a co-op board member and continued to be active in the Catholic Church as well as the Turtle Bay Association. Claire, who was the daughter of Mildred and Murray Marcus and sister of Barbara Koenig, is survived by her two sons, Jeff and Todd, her nieces Meri and Jill, her grand nephews Richie and David, her cousin Marge and her sister-in-law Irene. Claire had wonderful friends, doctors and care givers who adored her and helped her. She touched all who knew her. Life is measured by what you give and not by what you get. Claire lived by those words. She lives in our hearts forever.
