Claire was born in Los Angeles to Paul and Margaret Sloggett. She graduated from UCLA and worked as a teacher.
In January of 1946, she married Jim Schulze. They lived in San Gabriel, then moved to Fullerton in 1957, where she was involved with the Assistance League.
Claire loved music, playing bridge, reading, and spending time with friends and family. Vacations in Laguna Beach resulted in their moving to Laguna before retiring to Oregon.
