Sister Claire Weber (Margaret Claire), CSJ, 90, died at the Teresian House on Dec. 5. The daughter of Clarence Weber and Linda Archambault Weber, Sister Claire was born in Utica, graduated from St. Francis de Sales High School and, in 1948, entered the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, with whom she served for 75 years. She prepared for her lifelong ministry in business teaching and administration at The College of Saint Rose, earning a bachelor’s (1962) and a master’s degree (1965) in business.

From 1952-59, Sister Claire taught business in Albany Diocesan high schools and was then appointed assistant business manager at The College of Saint Rose. Sister Claire next ministered in teaching and administrative posts in Syracuse and Albany diocesan schools, including 13 years as business manager of Catholic schools in Rome, N.Y. From 2002 until her retirement in 2022, Sister Claire served her community in the Business Office at St. Joseph’s Provincial House in Latham.

While serving in Rome, Sister Claire celebrated her 50th Jubilee. Asked about religious life’s many changes, she answered, “It’s a life of faith — The Lord can see around corners that we can’t.” A life of faith — that was Sister Claire’s mantra when faced with any challenge. When asked about turning 70, she wrote, “Praise the Lord and pass the cake and ice cream.” Sister Claire’s life, a balance of her deep faith and joyful spirit, enriched all she served.

Sister Claire was predeceased by her parents. She and her only sibling, Father Jerome Weber, bonded closely during their school days, and remained close during their years of ministry and retirement. She visited her brother one month before her death. She is also survived by her loving religious community, especially her dearest friend, Sister Julie Eigo. Sister Claire’s funeral Mass was celebrated on Dec. 11 at St. Joseph’s Provincial House.

Contributions in Sister Claire’s memory may be made to the Office of Mission Advancement, St. Joseph’s Provincial House, 385 Watervliet-Shaker Road, Latham, N.Y., 12110.
