Clara was born September 6, 1912, to Peter H. and Margaret (Dahlke) Peters at the family farmstead in Gordon Township, near Alsen. She attended Gordon Township #2 through the eighth grade. That fall her father sold the farm in Gordon Township and the family moved to the Sarles area where she attended the Sarles school. She met Archie Kern in 1928, and in 1932 they were married, on Christmas Eve, at the Calvin Church. They made their home in the Hannah area, where they farmed and lovingly raised their five children. They were sincere believers in the truth of the Bible and in their Savior, Jesus Christ, of whom the Bible speaks. They followed the teachings of Christ throughout their lives and taught and urged their children and grandchildren to do so as well. She is now with her beloved Savior, Jesus Christ and in accordance with the teachings of the Scriptures is also reunited with her husband Archie and her loved ones who were believers as well.
