Clara Lammert Albrecht
Clara Lammert Albrecht passed away Jan. 28, 2019 at Clifton Lutheran Sunset Home. Funeral services were held Jan. 31, at Immanuel Lutheran Church with Rev. Brian McQuiggin officiating. Visitation with the family was an hour prior at Immanuel Lutheran Church.
Clara was born March 28, 1922 in Meridian, TX to Henry and Martha (Goeke) Lammert. She was baptized and confirmed at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Womack, TX. She graduated from Clifton High School and attended Clifton Junior College.
On Dec. 30, 1942, Clara married Leo L. Albrecht. They lived in Clifton all their married life, where Leo worked at Farmer’s State Bank and Clara was a homemaker, raising their three children. She later worked for Clifton Independent School District.
Clara and Leo always had a garden and she could “can” or “put up” anything. Her dill pickles are still talked about to this day.
She and Leo placed a high value on education. They strived to make sure their children and grandchildren had educational opportunities and celebrated when all graduated from college.
Clara loved her family and friends, and enjoyed her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was a lifelong member of Immanuel Lutheran and faithfully attended until her health prevented her from doing so.
She was preceded in death by her husband Leo; parents; grandson Jason; two brothers Raymond and Herbert and three sisters Nelda, Lillie, and Edna.
Clara is survived by her two sons Gene Albrecht and wife Ginger and Clinton Albrecht and wife Greta; one daughter Betty Townsend and husband Bart; seven grandchildren Sean Albrecht and wife Tonya, Leslie Albrecht, Todd Townsend and wife Manda, Kate Smallwood and husband David, Kelcey Strong and husband Robert, Colton Albrecht, and Connor Albrecht; great-grandchildren River Leo Albrecht, Carter and Parker Tunnell, Grace and Luke Smallwood, Brooke and Summer Verhagen and Nik Saenz; sister-in-law Marjorie Fulton, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Pallbearers were Sean Albrecht, Todd Townsend, Colton Albrecht, Connor Albrecht, Greg Janke and Ken Watson.
