Clara Adriana Hartt was born September 1, 1906 to Edward & Susan (Duchesnay) Hartt, and raised in Fredericton Junction, New Brunswick on a farm and was a life long member of that community. She was very proud of the fact that she was a fourth generation descendant from the pioneer Thomas Hartt for whom the town of Hartt’s Mills was named. Clara married Victor Nason on September 22, 1926 and raised a family of seven children, much of the time by herself as she was widowed at 48 years of age. She had attended Agricultural School after graduation where she learned many skills such as cooking, gardening, sewing, etc. She was very accomplished at these tasks as evidenced by the many quilts, hooked rugs and crafts, that she made. She belonged to many organizations and also held offices in a number of them. Clara was a wonderful mother and had a great sense of humor; we had lots of laughs growing up. In spite of contracting diabetes at a fairly young age, she still led a full and active life until she was 88 yrs old while still living in her own home. She liked to say “They’re gonna take me outta here feet first!” And that’s just about what happened!!!! Clara and Victor's children: Miriam, Vernon, Walter, Ross, Burton, Glenna, and Carol.
