Memories about Clara Freudenberg:
Selma Louise Freudenberg (1920- ) says: "she had a tragic love affair, then never married. She may have had some psychological problems. She went into a decline after losing her job and never recovered. Once Ralph Herman Freudenberg I (1931-1992) made a prank phone call to Clara by disguising his voice and asking her for a date. She got dressed up and of course no one showed up. Maria Elizabeth Winblad (1895-1987), the estranged wife of her brother, Arthur Oscar Freudenberg (1891-1968), took care of Clara for a while, but found her to be too sarcastic and she ended up living in her brother Arthur's house, in Keansburg."

She died in Keansburg, New Jersey of a heart attack.

Her obituary appeared in the Jersey Journal on Wednesday, November 04, 1959 and reads as follows: "Freudenberg - Clara, on November 2, 1959, of 136 Cottage Street, Jersey City; sister of Arthur, Richard, Ralph, and Mrs. Grace Sanford. Relatives and friends are invited to attend the funeral service at the Otto Mack Funeral Home, Central Avenue and Hutton Street, Jersey City, Thursday, November 5th at 2 p.m. Interment Flower Hill Cemetery, North Bergen."

She was buried in the Freudenberg family plot in Flower Hill in North Bergen.

Clara Freudenberg (1889-1959) is the grandaunt of Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ).
