Lancaster Mrs. Clara Wright Respass, 83, died Monday, April 18, 2022 at her home. All services are private. Mrs. Respass was born September 4, 1938 in Chester, SC and was a daughter of the late James E. Wright and Nannie Evans Wright. She was a graduate of Great Falls High School and was a homemaker. Clara lived a beautiful life; she provided comfort and solace to those in need. Clara’s love for her family didn’t come to an end with her passing. Clara’s greatest love Charles Buddy Respass, passed in July 2020, they were together for 60 years. Clara’s love for her family was her sole focus. She worried about them, rooted for them, protected them, forgave them and always kept loving them. She loved getting all of her children and grandchildren together at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for vacation, where her and Buddy would cook for the whole family . The best place in her house was her kitchen, this is where the family would gather to reminisce, tell jokes, sing and laugh. She taught her children integrity, loyalty, compassion imbuing them with the confidence necessary to pursue life with a pervasive, contagious fervor. She was kind, generous and compassionate. Even when she spoke in anger, she was often the first to apologize and to try to heal what was broken. She is survived by two sons, Charles Michael Respass (Mary Jane) of Lancaster, SC and Stephen David Respass (Jill) of Austin , TX; three daughters, Donna Lynne Haskins (John) of Dale City, Va. , Dee Ann Ezcurra(Gus) of San Rafael, TX and Michelle Lee Burns of Fredericksburg , VA; Her fifteen grandchildren, Jennifer Hansen, Amanda Morlock, Jenelle Sandy, Jessica D’Amato, Nicole Lewis, Stephanie Williams, Sophie Haskins, Adam Haskins, Alan Ezcurra, Haley Respass, Samantha Burns, Luke Respass, Buddy Burns, Rebecca Burns and Jacob Burns; seven great grandchildren, Joshua Hansen, Lyla Sandy, Nathan Hansen, James Sandy, Michael D’Amato, (Ben Hansen and Lily D’Amato) on the way; and one sister, Diane Powers of Great Falls. Clara will be desperately missed by all those that she’s left behind. Our hearts are so broken by this loss. She was one of a kind and to be loved by her was to be truly blessed.
