Clarine was born July 31, 1920, in Hannibal, Mo., to W. E. and Edith Wiseman Hicks.

She was married to Robert P. Hirner Sr. on Dec. 31, 1941, at her parent's home in Hannibal, Mo. He preceded her in death Feb. 4, 2005.

Survivors include two sons, Robert Paul Hirner Jr., (Ruth) of Warrensburg, Mo. and Timothy W. Hirner (Sharon) of Holts Summit, Mo.; four grandsons, Robert P. Hirner III (Colleen), David W. Hirner, Kevin A. Hirner and Brian Hirner; and four great-grandchildren, Colton, Dylan, Lucas and James. Also surviving are numerous nieces and nephews.

Clarine was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, James Hicks and William Hicks; and one sister, Mildred Hicks Wildman.

One of Clarine’s first jobs that she dearly loved was at the Mary Ann Sweet Shop, where she decorated and made the chocolates. Clarine later worked also at Treasure Isle, a gift and card shop downtown. She later retired from the Hannibal J.C. Penney Store, where she was a clerk for 15 years.

Away from work, Clarine enjoyed crocheting. She made beautiful afghans, hats and scarves. She also loved to fish with her husband, Robert, at their camp on the Mississippi River. Fishing trips with family to Canada, Minnesota and to Montauk State Park in Missouri for trout fishing were always a favorite. A talented baker and cook, Clarine made the best frozen salads, usually a treat that included Jell-O and marshmallows. Most of all, Clarine cherished the time she shared with her family and friends.

Clarine was a faithful member of St. John’s Lutheran Church for many years.

Memorial contributions may be made to St. John’s Lutheran Church.
