(1/17/13) Clio L. Huebner, age 95, of Alma Center, WI. died Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2013 in the Black River Memorial Hospital in Black River Falls.
Clio had been a resident at the Pine View Care Center in Black River Falls for the past four months. She was born in Augusta, WI. on Nov. 9, 1917 to Frank and Florence (Zank) Shoemaker, and was raised in the Town of Butler, south of Thorp, in Clark County.
Because high school was too far away to attend, she stayed on the family farm and helped with house work and farm chores.
She met Ray Huebner, who was a cook in CCC Camp, and they were married in Mauston, WI. on October 2, 1936.
After their marriage, the couple lived in Milwaukee, Butlerville, Taylor, Rochester, N. Y. and Tucson, AZ. They retired in Northfield, WI. After Ray's death, Clio moved to Alma Center.
Clio enjoyed flowers, and she loved to read, garden, cook, bake and visit with friends and relatives.
