Clara Mallon

May 21, 1917 — March 24, 2012

Clara Mallon died peacefully on March 24, 2012, two months shy of her 95th birthday. She literally fell for her husband of 58 years, the late Robert Mallon, when she tripped down the steps of her church in Omaha, Neb. He helped her up and walked her home the long way. They were married on May 18, 1940, and moved to Southern California in 1945 with a two-year-old in tow. Three other children followed and Clara’s commitment to family, church and community flourished. Clara and Bob moved to Placerville in 1981, where she was a faithful member of Federated Church for 31 years. Always doing for others, Clara crocheted more than 100 hats for homeless people while in her late 80s.

Known for her generous spirit, positive outlook and love for all people, Clara is an inspiration to her family. She is survived by children, Mike Mallon of Bellingham, Wash., Susan Hunn (Richard) of Pollock Pines and Mary Morisset of Placerville; grandchildren, Anna Mallon of Honolulu, Hawaii, David Hunn (Jessica) of St. Louis, Mo., Catherine Arguelles (James) of Carmichael, Calif., Jill Brauchla (Tom) of San Diego, Calif., Matt Mallon (Sophia) of Ventura, Calif., and Jocelyn Mallon of Azusa, Calif.; and great-grandchildren, Luke, Isabel, Lilly, Logan, and Amelia. She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Mallon; son, John Mallon; and grandson, Peter Mallon.

A memorial and celebration of Clara’s life will be held on Saturday, March 31, at 2 p.m., at Federated Church, 1031 Thompson Way in Placerville.  In lieu of flowers contributions in Clara’s memory may be made to Federated Church Women’s Scholarship Fund, at the church address, or to the charity of your choice.
