Clara Agnes Wood Dischinger

Clara Agnes Wood Dischinger, 93, of Lake Oswego, Ore. , formerly of Terre Haute, went peacefully into the arms of Jesus as she fell asleep in her chair watching football on Dec. 13, 2009. Clara was born Sept. 25, 1916, in Madison. She graduated from Ryker’s Ridge High School in Madison, received a bachelor’s degree from Indiana University and a master’s degree from Indiana State University.

Clara married Donas Dischinger in 1938. They were married 50 years until his death in 1988. Their life together was lived in Anderson, Terre Haute, and Tigard, Ore. Donas spent his career as a teacher and coach at Garfield High School, and later as a counselor at Terre Haute South Vigo High School. He also was athletic director for the Vigo County School Corporation for a number of years. Clara taught elementary physical education at the State Laboratory School and Physical Education and Health at Honey Creek High School, both in Terre Haute. She also worked for a few years as an obstetric technician at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Terre Haute.

Wherever Clara’s children were participating, she was a parent volunteer. She directed three carnivals at Collett Elementary School in order to purchase a piano for the school. She was very active as a leader in Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, one year training local girls chosen to attend a Girl Scout National Jamboree. She was the chief statistician for summer baseball leagues, and provided play by play coverage of the Babe Ruth League National Championship games in 1955, won by the team from Terre Haute, which her husband coached and on which her son played. Clara served on the State Board of Athletics and was instrumental in bringing full-court basketball for women to the state of Indiana. She was an accomplished seamstress, a Sunday school teacher, active in the Garfield Mother’s Club, and forever driving carloads of kids to scout outings, band concerts, or sporting events of every kind.
