In Loving Memory of Clara Eye

With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Clara Eye, a beloved daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend, who departed from us on Sunday, July 30, 2023, at Unity Point Hospital. Clara was a beacon of kindness, compassion, and joy, leaving an indelible mark on all who had the privilege of knowing her.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations to be made to the Alzheimer’s Association and Special Olympics of Iowa in Clara's honor.

Clara was a farmer’s wife, homemaker, and care giver; she loved being a Teacher’s Assistant for many years at Riverside School and was a Mary Kay consultant, too. Clara was a business owner of Clara & Dale’s Bridal Fashion in Sioux City, where she was a seamstress and did alterations, as well.

Clara enjoyed music while coloring and creating beautiful crafts. Clara was a gifted artist whose creativity knew no bounds. Her pictures vibrantly colored, brought beauty and inspiration to countless lives. She had an infectious laugh that could brighten the darkest of days and a heart that overflowed with love for those around her.

She leaves behind daughters Debra L Carr of Newcastle, WY; Jacquelyn L Eye Miller of Kingsley, IA; Lesa Marie Eye of Clearwater FL; Michelle Eye of Sioux City, IA; Donna Eye of Sioux City, IA; grandchildren Dale and Sarah Clark of Pueblo West CO; Lori and Jerry Gray of Newcastle, WY; Amanda and Ricky Lien of Firestone CO; Victoria and Nick Epps of Kingsley, IA; Nichole and Robert Sigafus of Sheldon, IA; Alexander and Heather Eye of Coralville IA; Charlie Vasquez of Coralville IA; Allie Eye of Sioux City IA; great grandchildren Samuel Clark & Skyler Clark of Pueblo West CO; Braxton Lien, Izabella Lien & Ryder Lien of Firestone CO; Michael McCalmont of Sioux City IA; McKayla Eye, Brayden Eye, Aubreigh Eye & Alexandria Eye of Coralville IA; two sister-in-laws, Shirley Shockey of Rockford, IL and Verna Shockey of Sioux City, IA; one brother-in-law, Roy Baker Sr of Sioux City, IA; and many nieces and nephews who will cherish the memories of their time spent together.

Clara's warm and caring nature touched the lives of many, and she will be deeply missed by her wide circle of family and friends.

Clara was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Dale C. Eye; daughters, Jeanne
Marie and Christina Lynn Eye; twin granddaughters, Patrisia and Vanessa Eye
three brothers: Gene Shockey Sr, Dave Shockey (Sharon), Butch Shockey, and one sister Gloria Baker.
