Clara R. Bath, 78, of South Amboy passed away Thursday, December 17, 2020 at Raritan Bay Medical Center. She was born in Perth Amboy. She had been employed as a bus aid for the George Dapper Bus Co in Iselin, with her late sister Edith Renowski as the driver, where they enjoyed making all the kids laugh. Clara loved visiting family, dancing, playing cards, dressing up in many different costumes, making people laugh. Clara was always the life of the party, where she would light up the whole room when she walked in. She had such a big heart, always helping anyone in need, by providing a warm place to sleep and food in their belly. She had words of wisdom to lift anyone up and was such a good listener. Her family was always the greatest and most important thing in her life. Clara will always be remembered as a wonderful mother, a beautiful and caring person, outgoing with a huge smile to brighten up the room. Her wish was to still come and be the life of the party, she would say “I will wear my hat and bring a horn”, and remember “I loves ya” and watch yourself”. “10-4 good buddy, Roger Wilko over and out”. She will dearly be missed by many.
