Clara Viola Wildt
August 20th, 1928 - November 8th, 2022
Clara had many interests but above all loved spending time with family. Her passion though was raising and taking care of children. She loved her grandchildren dearly and when they grew too old to be “watched” she started doing day care for local children. Over the course of her life she enjoyed playing golf, bowling, fishing, cooking, gardening and traveling to Drummond Island for annual family vacations and Florida for beach time and shell hunting. She still played in the family golf outing and went out in the boat fishing up until 2021. Never a quitter with a sharp mind she was a keen card player. She was a long time member of the Peace Evangelical Lutheran Church.
Clara is survived by her son, Walter Wildt Jr, (Debbie), daughters, Jeannie Gerling (Richard deceased) and Cheryl Anderson (Greg), grandchildren, Brooke Stubben (Rob), Brett Gulley (Brandy), Grant Gulley, Dane Gulley, Chris Lowe (Faith), Melissa Lowe, Gregory Anderson II, and great grandchildren, Darcy Lowe, Alani and Libby Gulley.
She is preceded in death by her parents Richard and Beatrice White, her husband Walter Wildt Sr., and her siblings Richard White, Beatrice Merriman, Lawrence White (Janet), Myrtle Peckstein (Harold) and John White.
Clara will be deeply missed by the many people who were close to her. Her love of family transcends all and she will live on through them.
