Bunke, Clara (25 June 1879 - 19 July 1958) 

Mrs. Clara Bunke, 79, died Saturday shortly after suffering a heart attack at the Willard Collins home near Stetsonville, where she had been living the past ten months. 

Mrs. Bunke, the former Clara Rakow, was born June 25, 1879, in East Prussia. In June, 1905, she was married in Germany to Otto Bunke. They came to the United States and lived in Sheboygan and then came to the neighboring rural area and also lived in Dorchester. 

After the death of Mr. Bunke in 1943, Mrs. Bunke assisted in a number of homes in this vicinity. 

They had no children. 

The funeral was held Tuesday afternoon at St. Peter’s Lutheran church at Dorchester, after which internment was made in the Memorial cemetery. The Rev. F. H. Sprengler officiated. 

Friends from here attending the funeral included Mr. and Mrs. Ferdinand Haack, Mrs. Helena Woempner, Mrs. William Schneider, Mrs. Albert Fenske and John Habeck. Mrs. Regina Ellenbecker, Mrs. Bertha Weideman and Mrs. Tillie Lapp called at the Funeral home Monday evening.
