Obituary of Helen Clare Kluetz

Helen Clare Kluetz, formerly of Chester, NJ passed away peacefully on Tuesday, February 4th in Palm Bay Florida following a long illness. She was 91. Clare was born on September 5th, 1928 in Bloomfield NJ to John and Helen Allen. She was the younger sister to John Jr. and Donald. Clare graduated from Bloomfield High School. Following the death of her first husband, Carl Schroeder, Clare re-married and moved to Chester NJ where she lived for over 60 years. Clare raised her 3 children while at the same time holding several jobs over the years including being the Chester Township Deputy Court Administrator and the Washington Township (Morris Co.) Court Administrator. Her last job was as a Processing Manager for a Chester Real Estate company until her retirement. Clare was involved in for a time with the Black River Playhouse in Chester. She was an avid reader and loved to travel with her husband George on annual trips to Antigua and Cape May. Clare and George could frequently be seen dining at many local restaurants with dear friends and family. Clare was known as a loyal friend, a fierce advocate for her husband and children, and a doting and proud grandmother to her 10 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. Although dementia robbed Clare of many of the things she loved to do in the twilight of her life, she never lost her beauty, quick wit, sense of humor, nor her fighting spirit. Clare will be missed by the many people she touched over the years but we all take solace that she is together again with her husband of almost 40 years George and her son Ty. Clare is survived by her loving children Cindy Schroeder and her husband Gary, Adam Schuler and his wife Donna; her step-children, Jamie Kluetz and his partner Joe, Paul Kluetz and his wife Brett, Stephanie Wolfe and her husband Kevin; her cherished grandchildren Aaron Parks and his wife Patricia, Jessie Parks and his wife Michelle, Luke Parks and his wife Katie, Ashly Sakata and her husband Scott, Hannah Schuler and Adam Schuler, Jr. and his girlfriend Rachael; her step-grandchildren, Jake Kluetz, Max Kluetz and Shain Wolfe. She is also survived by her precious great-grandchildren; Arianna, Eileen and Poppy. In addition to her brothers and parents, Clare was pre-deceased by her husband George; her first husband Carl and her son Jack “Ty” Schuler, Jr. Funeral services will be held privately by the family. Donations in Clare’s name can be made to your local Hospice.
