Claire Mix (1961-2013)

Claire Mix peacefully transitioned from life on Wednesday evening, June 12, 2013. She was surrounded by members of the Claire Care team, a group of close friends who joined together to provide around-the-clock support for Claire after she was diagnosed with end stage colon cancer in March.

Claire was a musician, a composer, an author, a screenwriter, a director, a producer of film and music, an emmy-nominated director, a teacher, a park ranger, an artist, a daughter and a friend and companion to us all.

Claire Mix suffered from Parkinson’s disease for the last years of her life, but was taken from us by a cancer that appeared in her colon. Donations may be made to the Claire Care fundraiser or in her honor to the American Cancer Society or to the National Parkinson’s Foundation.

Gila River and Mama: The Ruth Mix Story was Claire’s loving appreciation to her mother, grandmother and all of the Japanese Americans who were interned during World War 2.

Claire was Executive Producer, Director and Screenwriter for Gila River and Mama.
