Bixby, Clara E. (27 JAN 1870 - 3 OCT 1890)
Died, at her home in Eau Claire, on Friday, Oct. 3, 1890, Clara Elizabeth Bixby, aged 20 years, 8 months and 7 days.
She was born at Livonia, Sherburne Co., Minn., Jan. 27, 1870, and in 1881 removed with her parents to this village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.), and continued to reside here until two years ago, wince which time she had been in the employ of a law firm at Eau Claire as stenographer. For several years her health had been poor and during the two months previous to her death, she suffered much. Having spent her school days here, everybody know and respected her and all extend sympathy to the sadly bereaved family in their great affliction. A grief stricken father, sisters Daisy and Flora, and brothers Fred, Ezra and Ernie, survive her. Her remains were interred in the Thorp Cemetery beside her mother, who also died but a trifle over a year ago. Rev. G. Brown conducted the funeral ceremonies and a large concourse of sorrowing friends followed the remains to the grave on Sunday last.
