Claire was a communicant of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church. She worked at Roger Williams University and Jamiel's Shoe World until retiring. She volunteered for the Meals on Wheels program and was an avid bowler. In her free time she loved to play scrabble and complete crossword puzzles.

She was preceded in death by her son John (Mousie) Azzarone, son in-law Jeffrey Graham, and her siblings Lionel Choiniere and Yvette Perron.
