Memories of Clara FreudenbergEdit
- 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 Elisabeth Winblad II (1895-1987), the estranged wife of her brother, Arthur Oscar Freudenberg I (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.
