Clarissa Bonfoey

(1821-1856). Housekeeper for Ellen G. White. On the death of her parents in 1849, she proposed that she share with the Whites the furniture she had inherited, live with them, and assist in the housework. For eight years she gave devoted service, traveling with them on occasion, and sometimes caring for the children while the Whites were away. Ellen G. White writes of her in most appreciative terms ( LS 123; 2SG 113).
