Obituary for Clenora Crepeau (Gartner)
Clenora Ellen Crepeau, 89, of White Bear Lake Minnesota, is a beloved wife, mother, and grandmother to the loving family she leaves behind. Proceeded in death by her husband Felix Crepeau Jr. and sister Marie Wilhelm. Survived by her children Kathleen, Diane and Felix, and grandchildren Lindsey, Brie, Colton and Josie.
Revered as one of the most genuine and influential women in her family's life, Clenora is now at home in heaven reunited with the love of her life, her husband of 55 years. Her consistent positive presence, rich Catholic faith, commitment to continued learning, and zest for world travel, combined to make Clenora a truly inspiring, interesting and unforgettable woman.
Clenora is forever in our hearts, remembered for her cheerful nature, her gumption and grace, and highly respected for her intelligence and independence. She was our fearless female leader who set the best example for living a wholesome, long life. Listening to her share tales of international travels including Bethlehem, the Vatican, Croatia, China, Scandinavia and more, plus the many military reunions, to recounting cherished family stories - especially the pride she exuded when talking about the accomplishments of her husband - we can still hear her voice loud and clear.
Donning red often and always aiming to look and feel her best, we think fondly upon Clenora's poise and sense of fashion. Proudly wearing special pieces of jewelry gifted from her loving husband, paired with beautiful cherry red lipstick, Clenora was our own Grace Kelly. We deeply miss her physical presence in this life, yet find peace knowing she is comfortable in her forever home in heaven, reunited with her husband.
We love you!
