Meet New Board Member Clare Cox

During their 50 year marriage, Clare and husband Dennis have lived in six states so jokingly call themselves “foreigners” since they don’t have a family history in Red Wing. All the more reason to join the Red Wing Seniors!

Clare has been editing the RWAS newsletter for nearly a year, and initiated the “Wild Women” card group. A journalist and editor, she began her journalism journey in high school and parlayed writing and photography skills into career positions with newspapers, hospitals, health care organizations, medical equipment device manufacturers and the State of Minnesota’s Department of Administration.

She started a chapter of Women in Communications in Pennsylvania, a women’s club in Missouri, and a Red Hat group in Maple Grove. A retired member of several public relations and media/writing groups, she’s enjoyed serving as an elected school board member, on United Way and YWCA committees as well as an election judge in Red Wing and Maple Grove. A “Leo,” she’s retired from a clown club (alley) that she organized at Allina Health System. Clare is the secretary-treasurer for the Kingswood A Townhouse Association of Red Wing.

The Coxes have two adult children with spouses and one granddaughter who live in the western suburbs.
