Her relationship with God became a very important part of her life. She met the love of her life on a blind date; that love blossomed and she later married Harold Edward James on January 14, 1955. They moved across country to California raising a family of four (Doug, Janet, Bryan, Duane). She would always talk about Jesus and the importance of her faith. Harold and Claretta later moved to Nampa to make their home. She was a member of the Christ Reformed Church in Nampa.

She is survived by her family including; sons Bryan and Duane; a sister, Ellen; a brother, Jim, and the families of all of her children, including those of Doug, and Janet. She lived a life of generosity and was always caring towards the people she interacted with.

Claretta was preceded in death by her husband and her son, Doug.
