Obituary for; Wynona M. Phiefer Wynona M. Phiefer, 76, a Mount Vernon resident, died Sunday,Jan. 10, 1982, in a local nursing home. Born in Kansas City, MO. on Nov. 23, 1905, she was the daughter of J.D. and Sophie Williams. Later, she moved with her parents to Montana and in 1932 moved to Oregon. In May, 1933, she married Clarence Phiefer in Vancouver, Wash. The couple came to Mount Vernon in 1971 where she had resided since. Surviving is her husband, Clarence, of Mount Vernon. At her request, no funeral services will be held. Cremation was held at the Hawthorne Lawn Crematory under the direction of Kern Funeral Home. Interment will be at Washelli Cemetery in Seattle.

On 7 Jan., 2006, I spoke to Leonard Phiefer in Oak Harbor, Washington regarding Clarence and Wynona. He is related to them and never knew of them having any children of thier own. Glen Williams.

January 9, 2006 Dear Glen, I recieved your letter the other day and will tell you all I know about Wynona Phiefer. Her husband, Clarence, was my uncle (my mother's younger brother). Wynona and Clarence were good friends as well as relatives. They had no children and since I am an only child, I was quite fond of them. In fact Wynona escorted me to school on my first day at Clearlake, Washington grade school. They lived in Clearlake for several years and then moved to Seattle. They would often visit us with thier beautiful samoyd dogs. When they retired they built a house on a lake in a rural area. They moved back to Skagit County when they felt they needed to be closer to doctors, relatives, etc. Wynona had a stroke and had to spend the last few years of her life in a nursing home. Clarence visited her every day so he could feed her and care for her. They were devoted to one another and when she died Clarence was very lonely and finally lived with my mother before they both needed extra care. I was surprised to get your letter because I had never heard Wynona talk about her family. Pherhaps I was just young and didn't pay much attention to things like that----I wish my mother or uncle were still alive so I could ask them questions. I hope this will help with your genealogy search. I have given you about as much information as I can remember, but I am fuzzy about dates. Sincerely, Jackie Mooney.

Wynona is listed as a student in School Dist. 16, Hill County, MOntana in 1922.
