Obituaries » Clara May Reese

Clara May Reese, 96, of Remington, passed away Nov. 11, 2021, at the Fauquier Health & Rehabilitation Center in Warrenton.

She was born on Feb. 21, 1925, in Culpeper County, to the late George Dewey Cook and Martha Octavia Delf Cook.

During World War II from 1942 to 1945, Clara did her part in the effort by building torpedoes at the U.S. Naval Torpedo Factor in Alexandria. Years later, she was honored by the National Rosie-the-Riveter organization for her service. She was known in the Remington community as someone who was always helping others such as driving folks for doctor visits, grocery shopping and other necessary trips. She also taught people how to drive and she enjoyed welcoming new residents to her community and introducing them to the locals.
