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.
