Cluna came to Indiana with her mother and siblings in 1900. In 1913, she and her family moved from Fort Wayne, Indiana, to Decatur Illinois. When she moved to Fort Wayne, she began dressmaking for private individuals in their homes. This opportunity developed her natural talent in design and fashion. Her expertise in the art of needlework was in many mediums, materials, and techniques. Cluna’s appreciation of home led her to design and supervise the construction of their two-story brick colonial home surrounded by three acres of landscape. The home was furnished with authentic Victorian antiques, which were upholstered in needlepoint that she had made and included many early American family heirlooms.
