Clarabelle A. "Lefty" Djubenski, 86, of Greenwood, passed away at her home on Sunday, December 12, 2021.

Clarabelle A. Henchen was born on August 10, 1935, in the Town of Weston, Clark County, to Clarence F. and Agnes H. (Minsaas) Henchen, Sr. She grew up on a farm in the Town of Weston and attended Globe School. Her family moved to Loyal, where she completed her education, graduating from Loyal High School in 1953. Clarabelle was united in marriage to Andrew Benedict Djubenski on May 13, 1953. They farmed in the Willard area, and she also worked at Louie Behrens' turkey farm. They moved to Greenwood, where she tended bar at George Holub's bar, but most of her life was spent as a homemaker raising her family. She was a member of St. Mary's Catholic Church and St. Ann's Society.

Clarabelle had many interests that included flowers, birds, wind chimes, classic country music, camping with her grandkids, and Braves and Brewers baseball. She especially loved spending time with her grandchildren and family.
