Clarice's employment included a comptometer operator for Rhea Clothing Manufacturers in Milwaukee until 1946. Her primary occupation and passion was a full-time homemaker and mother, except for a few years as an accountant for Stock Lumber, JC Penney and as a relief clerk for the Milwaukee Road.

Clarice and Don enjoyed traveling to Hawaii and taking cruises. Some of her enjoyments were yard sales, refinishing furniture, and canning fruits and vegetables from their garden. As a member of the YMCA, Clarice really enjoyed her land and water exercise classes.
