Obituary: Story, Claire


STORY, Claire An icon of north Spokane, our Dad, Claire Story, 87, passed away at Hospice House of North Idaho on May 7, 2013. To know Dad was to know a man of passion for life and adventure. He was a husband, father, grandfather, cousin, uncle and friend. Known all over Spokane, he was a teacher (at Emerson, Balboa, and Logan), the owner of Story’s Swim School (where a generation of kids learned to swim), a realtor, and a Boy Scout executive. Dad loved fishing (almost as much as talking about it later), woodworking, outdoors, travel and golf. Dad leaves behind his daughter Sheryl (Dana) Caldart, and his son Don (Teri) Story and his five grandkids — Catlyn Caldart and James, Elsie, Annie and Jonathan Story, and wife Sue Fall-Story. We invite you to join us in celebrating Claire’s life on Saturday, May 11, 2013 at 2:00 P.M. at the Audubon Park United Methodist Church at 3908 Driscoll Blvd., Spokane, where he and Mom were active members since 1958. There will also be a Memorial Service held on Tuesday, May 14, 2013 11:00 A.M. at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, Hayden, ID.
