Clare Ellen Kellogg, 82, of Hamilton, passed away on Monday, September 7, 2020, at Blessing Hospital, in Quincy, IL. She was born on December 21, 1937, daughter of Ralph and Anna (Boegner) Kellogg at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Keokuk, IA.
She attended Pleasant Prairie and Hamilton Grade School and graduated from Hamilton High School in 1955. Clare worked as a legal secretary for Samuel Naylor Law Firm for 24 ½ years and retired from her profession with the law office of Tucker, Hartzell, and Bryant Attorneys after another 34 years.
Clare was a member of the First Christian Church in Hamilton. She spent many years traveling across the state on a bowling team. Clare was always, always ready to have fun and party with the twins Mary Wilkens and Martha Smith. She was an enthusiastic Cub’s fan. Clare was well known for her broccoli and rice casserole at family gatherings. Everyone constantly teased her about the ‘green stuff’ but the pan always went home empty. Clare sincerely appreciated all the assistance from family, friends, and neighbors that helped her continue to enjoy her independence.
Clare is survived by her many cousins.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Ralph and Anna Kellogg.
Graveside services will be held at 11:00 A.M. Thursday, September 10, 2020 at Oakwood Cemetery in Hamilton with Illinois Public Health guidelines in place.
