Clare T. Morgano
Nov. 16, 1944-Oct. 24, 2012
Clare passed away after a fifteen year battle with Multiple Sclerosis. She handled her illness stoically & gracefully, always available to listen & share with friends. She was a lover of dancing, fine food, champagne & wine.
Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Clare graduated from Bowling Green State University, & received her Master's degree in English, with a concentration in teaching English as a second language, from San Francisco State University. After serving in the Peace Corp in Tonga & as a volunteer for Vista in Pima County AZ, Clare settled in her beloved San Francisco where she taught in the ESL & Vocational ESL programs at SF Community College. Always a traveler, Clare visited most of the South Pacific, Southeast Asia, Mexico, Europe & Canada. As soon as school was out, she left on her next trip.
Clare is survived by her brother Jerry Morgano & wife Bev, 2 nephews Todd & Mark, 4 great nieces & nephews & 3 cousins.
A celebration of Clare's life will be held on Nov. 18. For details, call Jill at 415-464-3529. KQED radio was her constant companion & Hospice Pathways her head caregiver. Donations to these organizations seem appropriate for anyone wishing to do so.
