Danetta  (Nettie) Cruze 88, long time resident of Ossining, NY, passed away on Thursday, January 11, 2018 in Saline, MI, only 10 days after the passing of her beloved husband, Clark.

Nettie was born March 13, 1929 in Mount Vernon, NY.  Nettie was the loving wife to Clark, loving mother to Michael Vincent, Mary Ellen, Mary Ann and Clark Jr, loving grandmother to Stephanie, Christopher, Michael and Stacy, and great grandmother to six. Nettie had a dynamic career that included bookkeeping, real estate management and was a part owner of "The Right Thing", a gift shop in Armonk, NY.

Nettie enjoyed entertaining with family and friends, traveling with Clark and making every child in her life feel special.

Nettie spent the last six years in Saline with Clark Sr, Clark Jr, Joleen, Michael, and Stacy. Her time in Michigan was short, but cherished. While Nettie was not her old self the last few years, her spirit and personality still shined through. 

Many thanks to the wonderful caregivers at the Brecon Village Memory Support Center in Saline, MI. Joint funeral services for Clark and Danetta will be held at 10:00 A.M. on Friday, May 18, 2018 at St. Theresa's Catholic Church in Briarcliff Manor, NY. There will be a luncheon to follow Mass.
