Mrs. Fadness, 84, of Rochester, MN, formerly of Fargo, died Tuesday (June 4, 2013) at her residence at Madonna Meadows. Clara was born August 12, 1928 in Hebron, ND to Matt and Elizabeth Messer Jantzer. After attending school in Hebron, Mrs. Fadness married Richard E. Renner on September 16, 1947. Richard and Clara raised six sons and a daughter in Richardton and Hettinger, ND. Shortly after Richard’s death on January 17, 1982, Clara moved to Fargo, ND to be closer to many of their children. Clara then married Russell K. Fadness on July 5, 1986. Some months after the passing of Russell on August 30, 2008, Clara moved to Rochester to reside in the community with her daughter Deborah and son Richard.
Clara was a “saint of a women,” a beautiful and talented woman with a devout faith and the utmost abundance of support and love for her family. Clara loved to bowl, golf, stich and cook, and she was extraordinary at them all.
Survivors include all her sons, Allan Renner of Estes Park, CO, Kenneth (Judy A.) Renner of Clearmont, MO, Donald (Judith B.) Renner of Columbus, OH, Richard (Cheryl) Renner of Pine Island, MN, Douglas (Sandy) Renner of Billings, MT, Charles (Lea Ann) Renner of Franklin, TN and a daughter, Deborah (Darrel) Raknerud of Rochester, MN; and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and step-grandchildren.
