Turner, Clara (21 FEB 1892 - 12 MAR 1944)

Mrs. Clara Turner passed away at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Flint, Mich., Sunday, March 12, 1944, after a two day illness. She was born Feb. 21, 1892 in Chicago, Ill., the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Adolph Forrest. She came to the Yellow River country when a small child, and spent most of her life here, except for a few years in Kelso, Wash.

She was married to Justin Turner in 1912 in North Dakota. Two children were born to this union, a son Elmer, who is now in the coast guard and is stationed in Atlantic City, N.J., where he is an instructor, and one daughter, Margaret Asseth, who teaches at Mr. Morris, Mich., with whom she made her home.

Those who are left to mourn her loss besides her two children, are one grandchild, Forrest Asseth, her daughter-in-law, Mrs. Elmer Turner of Atlantic City, N.J., two brothers, Erick Forrest of Marshfield, Wis., and Frank Forrest of Hartford, Conn., and a host of other relatives and friends.

The funeral was held on Tuesday afternoon, March 16 at one o’clock from the Plombon Funeral Home in Stanley, and at two o’clock from St. John’s Lutheran Church here, Rev. Alexander Thompson of Cornell officiating. The pallbearers were: Peter Filipiak, Holsten Holstenson, Arne and Elmer Bjerke, Walter Leonard and Ingman Bolstead. Interment at Meadowbrook cemetery near Gilman.
