Link to March 27 Marshfield News Herald obituary.

Excerpt: Born in Marshfield [Wisconsin] on May 31, 1948, she moved to Florida in 1974 soon after earning a master's degree in library science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her first job in Florida was as an adult services librarian at the Palm Beach County Public Library System. In 1976, she joined the Tampa-Hillsborough Public Library System, where she worked for 34 years primarily as the head of several progressively larger branch libraries, the last being the inviting new Jan Kaminis Platt Regional Library on Manhattan Avenue in South Tampa.


Family, friends and library colleagues and patrons are invited to celebrate her life at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 1, 2010, at Brewer & Sons, 3328 S. Dale Mabry Highway, Tampa, Fla. No flowers please. Instead, remember Clarice by bringing a favorite book or DVD to the funeral home and the item will be donated to a local library.

A memorial service will take place this summer in Marshfield.
