  1. We are so sad to hear of the passing of Marvin and Clara. They were always special to me and I loved sitting close to them at church. We have exchanged cards over the years and I spoke to Clara just days after Marvin passed away and before she passed. She just seemed to be a little lost without Marv. They complemented each other and were a perfect little couple. I will greatly miss them but know they are in a heavenly place. Our sincere sympathies. Danny and Patty Frerich

  2. Marvin and Clara were some of the first to welcome me to the family. They always were sweet and had something good to say. They will be missed

  3. Please accept personal condolences from my husband Leo J. Wink and myself. Leo is the oldest son of Clarence Wink (deceased) and Anna Marie Detten Wink of St. Francis Parish.

    Leo’s Mom spoke of receiving the handwritten notes from your Mom.

    I am a graduate of St. Mary’s Academy and a cousin to Ronald J. Neusch, who was a friend of your Mom’s as well as your Uncle Clarence.

    I also want you to know that the Alumni Group for St. Mary’s Academy, Price Memorial College, and Alamo Catholic High School have been notified.

    Prayers of peace and comfort for you.

  5. Marvin and Clara were a very sweet couple that I loved dearly. I was a recipient of many of Clara’s sweet cards. She never missed my birthday or our anniversary, I will miss her sweet smile, and the pats on my cheek. God bless you Clara. I will miss you.
    Love, Bernadette
