Memories Timeline


  1. She was the kindest, sweetest person I ever met. Never a bad word or comment came from her. She had a heart of gold. The world lost a cherished soul. Heaven has welcomed her with open arms. There is no doubt about that!!

  2. I only had the pleasure of meeting you once on your 99 the birthday it was an honor. My prayers go out to your family.RIP

  3. Clara was an angel here on earth – truly one of God’s servants who lived her faith in service to others. Everyone at Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church loved her and looked forward to her testimonies as she solicited funds for “Clara’s Pickle Jar” – first for roof repair, then for a new roof, and then for various other church projects as the needs arose. She was a living example of Jesus’ parable about the widow and her penny giving the Lord far more than those who were wealthy. But Clara really was rich – rich in love, in faith, in family. To the family that she loved so much – may God comfort you with joyful memories and the assurance of the Resurrection! Love, Mike & Karen Hahn

  4. To Clara’s family– I am sorry for your lost, but at the same time, Praise God for eternal life through Jesus Christ. My mother ,also, resides at Hoyt. On August 17, we watched Clara “dancing” to the music in her wheelchair. A moment to cherish in my memories.
