My condolences. I have a painting signed by Clary Nelson. Got it while visiting /researching Shalom Park Edmonton as a wedding venue. We happened upon it in a storage space and I was drawn to it. The lady helping us said that Clary was a prodigious painter. I believe she may have been ill at the time. Would this be the same Clary? I still have the painting and I’m still drawn to it. .

I only just came across this sad news and want to add my deepest sympathy on your loss. Clary was a remarkable and very fine woman. She was a friend to my family and it was a privilege to know her.
