Clara Mae (Henscheid) Endres was born in Muenster on September 4, 1925 to Albert and Dora S. (Hesse) Henscheid. The family lived on the Henscheid farm, just north of Muenster, with Clara’s Grandfather, Henry Henscheid. As Clara learned to talk, it was the German language that she spoke, as it was the only language spoken in the Henscheid household at the time. That was the case until she started school at Sacred Heart Catholic School, where the Nuns taught her to speak English. Clara married Edward W. Endres on May 2, 1944 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Muenster. They moved into a small house at 906 N. Main in Muenster. The house would be their home for more than fifty years. Through the years, it was enlarged several times to make room for their growing family. Over a twenty-year period, Clara gave birth to thirteen children. During the Wake Service, Carla Schilling Zwinggi, Clara’s Godchild, read the Eulogy, which highlighted a life-long devotion to God and Family.
