Clarice was born April 27, 1931, to Floyd and Ellen (Beck) Bradshaw in Culbertson, Mont. She attended various schools, mostly in Grantsdale and Hamilton, Mont., and graduating from Glasgow High School in 1949. She met her future husband, Carl L. Stahl, while her family was living in Hamilton. Carl and Clarice married Jan. 11, 1949. Three children were born to this union: Kenneth Lee, 1950, Wayne Carlyle, 1952 and Susan Ann, 1957. In the fall of 1956, Carl and Clarice purchased the Lund place north of Hinsdale and moved there the following summer. The family moved to the Hetrick farm in Saco in 1962, later purchasing it. This was home until Carl and Clarice passed away.

Clarice was always busy as she found it difficult to sit still for very long. She crocheted many doilies, tablecloths, and ornaments, selling them at craft bazaars or gifting them to her family and friends, all the while working side by side with Carl on the farm. She began refinishing furniture and spent many years teaching Adult Education classes through the Saco School and for her friends and family. Clarice spent many hours helping neighbor ladies with housecleaning, gardening, driving to doctor appointments and helping however she could. She was always available to help her children and grandchildren whenever she could as they were her top priority.

Clarice was preceded in death by her parents, Floyd and Ellen Bradshaw; her husband, Carl Stahl; brothers, Baby Bradshaw and Sonny Bradshaw; sisters, Lois Wetzsteon and Vivian Parr; brothers-in-law Jerry Patzer, Stanley Parr, William Wetzsteon, Harvey Berg, Daryl Stahl, Irvin Stahl, and Will Stahl; sisters-in-law Betty Stahl, Jean Stahl, and Lois Johnson; two nieces, Cindy Patzer and Kathy Stahl; one grandson Ryan Olsen; and one great-grandson Terryn Moore.

She is survived by her children, Ken (Gayle) Stahl, Wayne Stahl and Sue (Allie) Olsen; sisters Alice Bradshaw and Cheryl Patzer; grandchildren Konrich (Cheri) Fuhrman, David (Ursula) Floren, Derrick (Tiffany) Floren, Mandy Moore, Natalie Cole, Joshua Stahl, Jennifer (Matt) Blaskowski, Brittany Bonner and Carli (Guy) Simanton; great grandchildren Lucas (Stephanie) Fuhrman, Gage Fuhrman, Thyus Olsen, Tatum Moore, Dyllan and Cheyenne Stahl, Traxton and Gray Simanton; great-great grandchildren Konrich Fuhrman, Katana and Kenzo Strong; and many nieces and nephews.

 Memorials will be gifted to the Saco Community Church.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Wilderness Funeral Home, Malta.
