Clara Lambrecht

Clara Deines Lambrecht passed away peacefully in her home, surrounded by loving family on May 14, 2015.
She was born August 21, 1925 to parents George & Katherine Deines. She was raised on the family farm on the West End of Billings with 12 Brothers and Sisters and attended Baseline School. Clara loved school and as she got older would often times be asked to help substitute teach which she really enjoyed. She was raised in a family surrounded by music. She played the organ and piano beautifully. Polka Music was her favorite and over the years had played many weddings & dances with her brothers, sisters and nephews.
On January 12, 1946, Clara married the love of her life, Frank Peter Lambrecht. Shortly after the wedding they lived with Frank’s Family in Columbus, MT where they helped with the family farming operation. They then moved on to their own adventure & for 3 years operated the Clark/Pierce Ranch outside of Red Lodge, MT where they worked side by side. Mom spoke often of this period in their lives & shared stories with us of their time spent while running the ranch. They later moved to Billings, MT where they spent the remainder of their lives raising their family. They always loved returning to help on the family farms when needed.
Clara was a loving & devoted Wife & Mother. She created a loving, nurturing home for her husband & children. She loved gardening and had a true green thumb for somehow making even the tiniest plants thrive & grow. She also loved to sew, knit and crochet. She made the most beautiful doilies & delicate tablecloths which we will cherish. Clara created a loving home, filled with the aroma’s of homemade bread & baked goods. She was an amazing cook & always made everyone feel loved & welcome. Her and Dad loved to fish, camp & spend time outdoors. They spent years enjoying these activities with family & friends and have passed this love down to their kids and grandkids. We will continue our camping traditions with loving memories.
Clara is survived by her son, Wayne (Brenda) Lambrecht, Daughters Sandra (Alan) Roller & Paula Binstock.

Mom, for those of us left behind, our love for you knows no end or boundaries. We will miss you terribly but will be OK knowing that you are reunited with Dad in a far more peaceful place; exactly where you want to be. Mom’s love for her German heritage was shared with us kids. She taught us to say “In God’s Name” in German whenever we travel or at the end of a phone call to each other. We will continue to say like we always had, “IN GOTTES NAMEN” and we will think of you. We love you Mom!
