Clara Blain, 91
Clara Blain, 91, went to be with her Lord and Savior peacefully on Sunday June 17, 2018.
Clara truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures; time with family and friends, quilting, her lifetime membership to the VFW Auxiliary and as a member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church.
Clara had an uncanny ability to reach people in a deep and positive way; she was a comforting listener and good friend to all.
Clara was preceded in death by her husband Armond “Army” Blain.
She is survived by her daughter Mary (Roger) Arndt; son Bert (Sally) Blain; grandchildren, Tony (Ronna) Arndt, Jay (Teresa) Arndt, Jason (Sharon) Blain and Jennifer (Matt) Frank; 13 great-grandchildren; four great-great-granddaughters; a sister Donna Smith; and neighboring friends who were family to her.
Clara had a huge heart for people and will be dearly missed.
Family, friends, and others whose lives Clara touched are invited to Gorden Funeral Residence in Hopkins on Wednesday, June 20, from 2 to 4 p.m. and from 6 to 8 p.m. A funeral service will be the following day, Thursday, June 21, at 11 a.m. at the funeral home.
