Claire Dorothy Richardson, 92
Beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and friend
Claire Dorothy Richardson, our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and friend, gained her angel wings on April 8, 2021, at the age of 92.
Claire was born on Staten Island, NY, on February 11, 1929 to Louise Lambert and Bertrand Harrington. After graduating from Curtis High School, Claire began working in Manhattan, where she met her husband, Lonnie Richardson.
She pursued a corporate career at Merrill Lynch, where she worked for 25 years for the Director of Training, was a member of The Church of Saint Andrew, sang in the church choir, and was a Eucharistic minister. Claire loved listening to music, playing classical piano, and tending to her beautiful flower garden. She was a member of the Archaeological Society and a supporter of the arts. More than anything, she loved her family, and her beloved dog Ruffles.
She will be lovingly remembered by her daughters: Daryl Richardson and Barbara Gleason (Richard); her five grandchildren: Vanessa Grier (Christopher), Christopher Richardson Solera (Graciela), Holly Jantz, Lauren Jantz and Timothy Gleason; and her five great-grandchildren: William Grier, Christopher Grier, Santiago Richardson Oviedo, Riley Grier and Felipe Richardson Oviedo.
She was predeceased by her loving husband of 57 years, Lonnie Richardson; her son, Douglas Richardson; sisters, Jean McCullock and Faith Flynn and her parents.
A visitation will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. on April 18, 2021, at Harmon Funeral Home, 571 Forest Avenue, Staten Island, NY, 10310. Funeral services on Monday, April 19th, will be private. The family wishes to send a special thank you to the staff at Bayside Manor, in Keansburg, NJ, for their care, compassion, and love during the final years of Claire's life.
