This obituary supplies the identify, age, birthplace, mom’s identify, partner’s identify, kids names, demise date and place, one affiliation, and residence, however no occupation info.  

Clara E. Albers (1909-1961) was born 28 October 1909 in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, the daughter of Harry Eugene and Elizabeth (Babb) Albers.  She married Everett Frazier Seaver (1908-2000) on 8 December 1930 in Summit County, Ohio.  That they had 5 kids:
*  Harry Edward Seaver (1931-1999), married 1954 Eleanor Joan Swisher (1934-2001).
*  Glenn Fulton Seaver (1932-2019), marred 1953 Marilyn Elaine Balcom (1936-2020).

I’m not associated to Everett Frazier Seaver (1908-2000).  He’s descended from Henty and Elizabeth (–?–) Seaver who migrated to Virginia from Germany within the mid-1700s.

There are over 10,000 Seaver “tales” in my household tree – and this was one in every of them.   Life occurs, by chance and deliberately, and typically an individual’s obituary supplies a pleasant listing of the members of the family. I’m glad that I can honor Clara E. (Albers) Seaver right this moment.
