Clara accepted Jesus as Saviour at 14. A friendship and courtship of 3 years led into 28 years of marriage with Albert Hutt. Clara served by teaching Sunday school, vacation Bible school, and feeding the ministry team that came from Steinbach (Man.) MB Church to Overstone. A year after Albert died, Clara moved to Steinbach, where she met John Toews at church. They enjoyed travelling and gardening. After his death, Clara moved to a retirement home, where she started a Bible study. Clara played organ, accordion, harmonica, and omniharp, and was always humming hymns. She prayed for her family by name.
