Clarice Barnhardt Poole, 90, of Kannapolis, went to be with her Lord and savior Jesus Christ on Wednesday, May 25, 2022 at Atrium Health Cabarrus.

Clarice was born September 10, 1931 in Cabarrus County. She was a cherished daughter of the late Jacob Rufus Barnhardt and Myrtle Mae Keeter Barnhardt.

Clarice was a long-time member of the Message Community Church where she loved to worship the Lord. She was a lifelong area resident of Kannapolis and spend her career working for Kannapolis City Schools. She worked 25 years until she retired from being a cafeteria cook. Clarice was a world traveler and took many trips abroad. She enjoyed doing crossword puzzles, bowling, watching old T.V shows and cooking meals for her family.
