In Clara’s 95 years, she witnessed many great changes and lived most of her life in her beloved Pine River, MN. She had a great memory and recall of history and events of this area and was happy to share her knowledge. Clara loved gardening, hand crafts, painting, watching and feeding birds and doing crossword and jigsaw puzzles. Cooking and baking were her very special talents and she shared generously. We all have special memories of her treats. She always kept all of us well fed and nourished in many ways. Throughout her entire life she was sustained by her very strong faith. We will so miss her love and sweetness of spirit.
