Clara and Frank farmed near Hepburn, Sask., before moving into town, where they owned several businesses. After their move to Saskatoon in 1959, Clara worked 10 years in the operating room at Saint Paul’s Hospital. She also spent a few years in real estate. Central Haven Personal Care Facility was where she believed God called her for the last 10 years of her working life. In semi-retirement, Clara and Frank purchased Poplar Point Resort on Cowan Lake, Sask. Here, they enjoyed the outdoor life, fishing and visiting with friends, until health issues forced their retirement to Saskatoon. In 2012, Clara entered Sunnyside Care Centre, where she remained until her death.
