Clarisa’s Story

Clarisa came into foster care at the age of 2 1/2. She was medically fragile and required constant care. The Mueller family of Rockwall adopted her two years later. She lost her battle with a lung disease on Oct. 20, 2019.

Clarisa had an infectious smile and loved life and her family. She blessed everyone she met.

The goal of C3 (Clarisa’s Compassion Challenge, a local nonprofit) is to bless others throughout the year in honor of Clarisa Grace “Risa” Mueller. Learn more about Clarisa’s story on her facebook page.
