Gay M. Cleere, age 80, of Saline, MI, passed away on Tuesday, November 14, 2017.
She was born on March 29, 1937 in Windsor, Ontario, the daughter of Jack and Gladys (DeVille) Partridge. She was married to Gordon Cleere Sr. and he preceded her in death in 1986.
Gay was kind and always positive. She loved her family and was very close to her grandchildren. Gay was an avid Detroit Tigers fan. Once, when the Tigers were in the playoffs, she put a huge sign on her garage door, rooting the Tigers on. The Saline Reporter came out to take a picture, which appeared on the front page. Gay enjoyed telling many colorful stories of her life growing up in Brantford, ON. She had a great sense of humor and was always up to mischief like blowing the straw wrapper across the table at a restaurant. Her love for all members of her family was evident in her words and deeds.
Survivors include her children Gordon (Karen) Cleere Jr. of Tecumseh, MI and Kari (William) Norton of Rochester Hills, MI. Other survivors include her grandchildren Evan and Gabriel Norton, Kyla and Luke Cleere, and sisters Betty (Dale) Boudrie and Dorrie (David) Hill.
