Friske, Clara (1 July 1892 - 25 June 1962)

 

Mrs. Otto Friske, 69, of Rochester, Minn., former Greenwood resident, died suddenly June 25, at her home of a heart attack.

 

Mrs. Friske, the former Clara Drews, was born July 1, 1892, in Buffalo, N. Y.  At the age of nine she went with her parents from Buffalo to Wilton. She was married June 4, 1913, to Otto Friske.  He died October 5, 1935.

 

After their marriage they lived in Wilton until October, 1919, when they came to Greenwood and settled on a farm three miles southeast of here. She lived there until 1940, when she went to Rochester to make her home with her only sister, Miss Anne Drews.

 

Surviving are two sisters and two brothers, Mrs. Herschel (Florence) Edwards of Stevens Point, Mrs. Milton (Bernice) Sebastian of Milwaukee, Norman Friske of Whitewater and Norbert Friske of Greenwood; also eight grandchildren, three brothers and one sister, Fred Drews of Buffalo, N. Y., William Drews of Wilton, and Leo Drews and Miss Anne Drews of Rochester.
