Clarence Elroy Althoff was born on Wednesday, April 24, 1929 to Simon and Ella (Gramberg) Althoff at home in Waubay Township, Day County, South Dakota. He is the third son of six sons and six daughters in the Althoff family. He attended Owens School District 175, graduating from the 8th grade in 1943. The Day County Superintendent informed his teacher that Clarences scholastic records were the highest of all other 8th grade students graduating that year in Day County. It was his desire to continue on to higher education. Unfortunately he never had the opportunity. His help was needed on the farm. He deserves much credit for its success. Clarence was baptized and confirmed in the Christian faith. His entire life was one of sacrifice and full devotion to serve his Lord and Savior who he professed to be the Greatest Teacher this world has ever known. Clarence passed away on Wednesday, January 11, 2012 at Canistota, South Dakota at the age of 82 years, 8 months and 18 days. He is survived by four brothers, Earl (Serine) Althoff and Virgil (Gaila) Althoff both of Waubay, SD, Duane (Barbara) Althoff of Ortley, SD and Eugene (Oriet) Althoff of Webster, SD and three sisters, Verna Knapp of Waubay, SD, Dorothy (Lloyd) Pies of Sisseton, SD and Marie Althoff Graves of Salem, OR. He was preceded in death by his parents, one brother, Harold, and three sisters, Myrtle Burkard, Irene Pies and Evelyn Pies.
