Newman, Clarissa (3 DEC 1856 - 9 OCT 1921)

It has pleased God our Heavenly Father to remove from our midst Mrs. Clarissa Newman, ne Roehr. She was born Dec. 3, 1856 in Plymouth, Wis. Soon after her birth she was accepted into the kingdom of God through baptism and later on confirmation. On June 11, 1875 in Neillsville, she entered the estate of matrimony with Charles Neuman. This marriage was blessed with 9 children, of which two preceded the mother in death. For many years they lived on a farm 2 1/2 miles northwest of Loyal, Clark County, Wis.. In 1913 they moved to our village.

For some time she was afflicted with dropsy and was called away last Sunday morning, Oct. 9th, 1921. She reached the age of 64 years, 10 months and 5 days.

She leaves to mourn her death her husband, 5 sons, 2 daughters, and 16 grandchildren.

The deceased was a kind and loving wife and mother and was ever ready to sacrifice for those she loved and will be greatly missed in the home.

She was a faithful member of the Lutheran Church.

The funeral services were held from the church at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, Rev. Kemena and Rev. Matter officiating.

She was laid to rest in the Union Cemetery.
