Claire was born August 15, 1927, in Paris, France, to her mother and father, Suzanne and Robert Laumonier. She was raised in Paris by her parents, until her father passed away during her teenage years. Claire grew up in Paris during the Second World War, and met a handsome US soldier, Vernon Hill, who would become her husband of 62 years, until his death in 2009. Claire and Vernon married on September 6th, 1947.

Claire moved to the US with her new husband, where they were stationed across different states and territories.

Claire and her husband moved to Vienna, Virginia in 1958. Claire lived out the rest of her life in that Vienna home where she raised her family.

Claire was a devoted member of her church, the Church of the Holy Comforter, and volunteered at the church’s thrift shop, Pennywise, for many years.

Claire had been blessed with many great care givers in her later years, and had bonded with her final caregiver, Patricia, who cared for Claire as if she was her own mother. Claire's family is grateful for the love she received from them.
