Clara Hoogeveen Obituary

Clara Theada Hoogeveen was born October 24, 1927, to Fanno and Tena (Wubben) Van Hove in Prinsburg, Minnesota.

On March 14, 1946, she was united in marriage to Stanley Hoogeveen at the Emden Christian Reformed Church of Renville, Minnesota. To this union five children were born: Linda, Carol, Steve,  Phil, and Michael.

Clara worked for the Sully Grocery Store and as the Sully Christian Grade School librarian. In her spare time, Clara enjoyed knitting, crocheting, cross-stitch and embroidery. She also enjoyed baking and making desserts for coffee time and Sunday dinners. Clara ran a tight ship at home, and kept a diary for decades. Stan and Clara were avid travelers and enjoyed camping all over the United States and Canada. They enjoyed sitting together watching the eagles below the dam.  

Clara is survived by her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, her brother-in-law Ed Muller of Kalamazoo, Michigan, and her sister-in-law Lydia Hoogeveen of Wilmar, Minnesota.

Clara was preceded in death by her husband Stan, parents, daughter Carol, son Steve, granddaughter Megan Hoogeveen, grandson David Hoogeveen, brother Ervin Van Hove, sister Marcella (Ed) Muller, and Stan’s siblings: Angie (Robert) Gort, Esther (Anthony) Zondervan, Eva (Lester) Brouwer, Helen (Delmar) Mulder, Lorraine Hoogeveen, and Harry Hoogeveen.
