Parker

Clara Margaret was born on Jan. 19, 1931 on the farm near Monroe to Albert and Ida (Wynalda) Deelstra. After completing the eighth grade at Monroe, she left school to take care of her mother when she became ill.

On July 28, 1954, she was united in marriage to Arnold Wollmann. They farmed near Hurley while also running the Kitchen Café. She was a fantastic cook and her specialty was the hot beef sandwich, cinnamon rolls and homemade buns. She loved visiting with everyone, especially children. She would talk to anyone and the coffee was always on.
