Clara Jane Nixon Dies at age 93 on Friday from natural causes, according to the Richard Nixon Foundation.

Clara Jane Nixon is the widow of President Nixon's brother, Donald. She died peacefully in Irvine, California.

"Family and close friends of Clara Jane Nixon are united today sharing treasured memories of life with this great lady. Her passing this morning leaves us with feelings of regret for having too many unfinished conversations, but rejoicing in the faith that kept her above the everyday noise all around us," said her brother-in-law, Ed Nixon.

The family reminisced about personal memories with Clara Jane Nixon, especially about her vision with the birthplace of the Nixon brother's, in Yorba Linda, California.

Roland Bigonger, Yorba Linda's first mayor, said that Clara Jane was probably the "single most important asset in tracking down the furnishings of the house."

"Clara Jane Nixon was always supportive of the Richard Nixon Foundation," said Nixon Foundation President Sandy Quinn.

Clara Jane Nixon is survived by her son Donald and daughter Lawrence.

There has been no public service scheduled but she will be privately buried at Rose Hills Cemetery near her husband Don and other members of the Nixon family.

Clara Jane Nixon's husband died in 1987 from pneumonia in Newport Beach.
