Obituary of Sarah Wika

Sarah Wika was born June 18,1896 in Garfield Township of Clark county, the daughter of Severt and Marit Wika. She passed away April 21,1985 at the Clark Nursing Home.
With the exception of a few years residing in Watertown, Miss Wika made her home in the Clark area.
She was educated in the Clark school system, and was a longtime member of the Clark Center Lutheran Church.
Survivors are nieces and nephews including Mrs Ralph (Mildred) Cochrane, Mrs Clifford(Orva) Schwartz, Norm Wika, and Alvin Wika of Clark, Maurice Wika of DeSmet, Mrs Jack (Nora) Davis of Watertown, Emmett Wika of Raymond, LeRoy Wika of North Platt, NE, Mrs Stan (Lois) Hankins of Albert Lea, MN; Mrs Sylvia Mears of Santa Monica, CA and Glenn Wika of Sioux Falls.
She was preceded in death by her parents, and four brothers, Nels, John, Melvin and Roy Wika.

Sarah never married. She remained at home carrying for her father until his death. After that time she moved into Clark and was hired as a housekeeping in private homes and cared for their children and lived right at their homes. She did this for quite a few years and then moved to Watertown, SD and was a housekeeper for several more years. After retiring she returned to Clark and lived in the Garden Grove Apts. She kept well informed on the family and knew the whereabouts of each and every one of her nieces and nephews and their children. She really enjoyed the Wika reunions and enjoyed visiting with every one.
