Sister Mary Clare (Claree Mae) Hall, OSB, 93, died December 17, 2020 at the Benedictine Living Community - Duluth in her 74th year of vowed commitment. Born August 24, 1927 in Two Harbors, to Edward Hall and Catherine (MacDougall) Hall, she was drawn to the Benedictine Sisters who taught religion and resolved to enter the Community after high school. She studied Elementary Education and taught in Chicago, Cincinnati, Hibbing, Minneapolis, Aitkin, and Duluth, also serving as principal. An outstanding teacher, she looked for goodness in her students, telling them, “You are very precious to God, and God loves you.” She is remembered as a selfless person who lived her faith and helped others develop self-confidence.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her brother Hugh Hall, and her sisters Barbara Youngberg, Jacqueline Gow, Bonnie Wilkins, and Kathleen Richardson. She is survived by the Sisters of St. Scholastica Monastery and many beloved nieces and nephews.
