Obituary for Barbara Rae Clayberg

Barbara Rae (Pitman) Clayberg passed away on February 3, 2019, at Israel Hospice House. She was born on April 6, 1941, to Ray and Clara (Dahl) Pitman in Algona, Iowa. She graduated from Story City High School in 1959. Barbara married James "Stoney" Clayberg on November 28, 1959. This marriage was blessed with four children. She was a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church, where she was confirmed and married.
Barb, without even realizing it, has always been the epitome of a modern-day working woman. She started working as a waitress in high school. After completing their family, Barbara worked at the local grocery store. She later helped her husband, Stoney, build their gas and auto service station business. As a grandmother ran an exclusive in-home (and sometimes station) daycare for her grandchildren, which she thoroughly enjoyed. Barb spent much of her time enjoying her family, chauffeuring her grandkids, and watching them in their various activities. She loved chatting with her friends at local businesses.
Barb had a love for music and was a very humble pianist, even though she played with such grace. A little-known fact, she was also a self-taught accordion player. She was an amazing baker, known especially for her delicious kringla. One thing was for sure, no one ever left her house hungry. Throughout her life she taught those around her to love with patience, to enjoy life with a laugh, and to make time for a margarita.
Barb is survived by her children Kim (Brad) Wyatt of Story City; Kirt (Dawn) Clayberg of Ankeny; Kia Chamberlain of Phoenix, Arizona; and Karla (Jamie) Concannon of Story City; her brother, Richard (Cynde) Pitman of Chandler, Arizona; and grandchildren Gunnar (Ellen) Wyatt of Carlisle; Luke Wyatt of Story City; Tanner Clayberg of Cedar Rapids; Courtney Clayberg of Ankeny; Brody (Cassie) Concannon of Marion; Bridget, Josie and Jillian Concannon of Story City; and one great grandchild Ada Wyatt as well as many in-laws, nieces, and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, Stoney; her parents, Ray and Clara; and her brother, Ronnie.
