Jacquie Svidran, 87, spent 25 years portraying Happy the Clown before retiring from the character in 1974. Her job took her to events around Washington and the rest of the United States. Now a Camas resident, she has also spent time as a stage, television and movie actress. A family member created this painting depicting Svidran in full Happy the Clown makeup and costume.
