Obituary for Clara A. Cromer (Bussman)

Clara Bussman Cromer, 96, of Kingsway Village passed away on January 19, 2019, at Ellis Hospital after a brief illness.

Clara was born October 11, 1922, in Troy, New York to the late Louise and Lawrence Bussman.

She graduated from Draper High School. She worked at General Electric and later for the Carl Company. Clara was a member of Trinity Reformed Church. She was an active member of the Ladies of the Rotterdam Elks (L.O.R.E.) for over fifty years, where she was past-president and led numerous committees. In 2006, Clara was awarded the L.O.R.E. Service Award.

Clara enjoyed knitting, crocheting, doing counted cross stitch, working on puzzles, playing Wii bowling, and enjoying meals with her friends at Kingsway Village. Clara enjoyed spending time with her great grandchildren, especially feeding the ducks in the pond with the littlest ones. Clara always had a story to tell and an infectious laugh.

She was preceded in death by her husband, James Cromer, to whom she was married for 51 years; sister, Louise Reitz; and her brother, Robert Bussman.

Clara is survived by her daughter Carol Clemens (Robert), of Hilton Head, South Carolina; her daughter Janet D’Arcangelis (Dominic), of Guilderland; her grandchildren Rebecca Watkins (Brent) of Rocky Mount, North Carolina; Emily Pranis (Scott) of Rochester; David D’Arcangelis (Rose) of Bristow, Virginia; Melissa D’Arcangelis of Clifton Park; and her great-grandchildren Jacob Watkins, Cole and Miles Pranis, and Chase D’Arcangelis.

The family would like to extend their sincere thanks to Clara’s many friends and the staff at Kingsway Village where she enjoyed living the last few years.

The family will receive guests on Saturday, January 26th at 11am with a service at 1pm at Bond Funeral Home, 1614 Guilderland Ave, Schenectady.

Spring Interment in Viewland Cemetery in Rotterdam, NY.
