Prasow, Clare

First Name: 
Clare
Last Name: 
Prasow

Clare Prasow was born in 1922 in Kenora, Ontario, where her parents had opened a furniture store in 1911. After a fire destroyed the original Donner’s Furniture store, Clare’s brothers came to Vancouver to scope out a place to establish a new business. The new furniture store was established in 1945 and family members from Kenora, including Claire and her mother, soon made the move to Vancouver to help out with the family business. The family would eventually open another Donner’s Furniture store just a block away from the first one in downtown Vancouver.
