Baer, Clara (1882 - 30 Apr. 1958) 

Funeral services for Mrs. Clara Baer, who died Wednesday, were conducted Saturday afternoon at 2:00 o’clock at Christ Lutheran church, with the Rev. F. H. Sprengler officiating. During the services, the Misses Dorothy and Marilyn Kieser sang "Asleep In Jesus," and "Heaven Is My Home." 

Pallbearers for the internment, which was made in the Abbotsford cemetery, were H. J. Amacher, Frank Bernitt, Ole Hanson, Walter Kuenzi, John Mueller and Harry Olson. 

Mrs. Baer, the former Clara Fletcher, was born in Germany in 1882 and came to Chicago at the age of 12. Here she was married to Alfred Baer, April 12, 1909. 

They lived in Ridgeway for seven years and at Donald for a period of 12 years and then moved to Edgar where Mr. Baer operated a cheese factory in the town of Frankfort. The factory burned in 1944 and Mr. and Mrs. Baer then purchased a home on First Street, in Abbotsford. Mr. Baer died in August, 1948. 

Mrs. Baer had spent the past winter with her son at Wautoma, and returned here at Easter time. Last Wednesday, after a visit to the doctor, she was taken to Edgar to the home of her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Weinke, as she hadn’t been feeling well. She had only been there a short time when death occurred. 

Surviving her are a son, Fred, of Wautoma, and four daughters, Mrs. Fred (Margretta) Weinke, Edgar; Mrs. Wilfred (Bertha) Raasch, Mrs. John (Genevieve) Hochevar, and Miss Elizabeth Baer, all of Milwaukee, and four grand children. 

Her husband and one son preceded her in death.
