Vera Ellen Hendrickson was born on May 21, 1914, in the town of Unity, to John and Lena [nee Carlson] Hendrickson. She attended school at Riplinger. She married Clarence G. Knoll on April 4, 1935, in Loyal. They farmed in the Loyal, Nasonville, Riplinger and Colby areas until the fall of 1962, when they moved to Riplinger. Her husband, Clarence, died Feb. 3, 1963. Following his death, she worked at the Riplinger Cheese Factory, some resorts in northern Wisconsin, and did baby sitting. She was a longtime member of St. John’s Lutheran Church and the WELCA in Riplinger. Vera was a wonderful mother and grandmother and loved spending time with her family and friends. She enjoyed going to dances in her younger years, listening to polka music, bird watching, camping with her family, gardening and admiring beautiful flower gardens.

Vera had a great zest for life and will be dearly missed by her children, LaVern [Evelyn] Knoll, Mountain, Dorene [Donald] Newman, Unity, Janet [Norman] Schmidt, Loyal, and Gene [Cheryl] Knoll, Medford. She is further survived by 12 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandson; one brother, Walter Hendrickson, Muskego; and several nieces and nephews.

Preceding her in death were her parents; eight sister, Ida, Emily, Mathilda, Selma, Lila, Alma, Julia and Olga; and six brothers, Art, Edward, Charles, John, Henry, and Raymond.

Community Funeral Home, Colby, is assisting the family with arrangements.
