Clara “Janie” Mercier, 74, died Sunday, Feb. 18, 2024, at the Sidney Health Center in Sidney.

She was born on May 5, 1949, in Sidney to Maria (Bender) and Fred Lowry. A nurse by trade, her heart shined with love and caring. Through all the tragedy she suffered, she truly lived life with an inner peace that most never know. She still loved life — loved living it. She loved her family most of all — her children being her greatest joy.

Some of her happiest times were spent in her little cabin at her son Gary’s outside of Helena. She just loved being in nature and watching the animals. It was her “little piece of Heaven.” And she watched over it and us with a devotion and protectiveness that was second to none. Much of her time in that cabin was spent with her great-granddaughter.

Gary often referred to his mom as “the warden” because she would sit up on her deck and watch the happenings going on at the property.
