Obituary for Clara M. Gilbert

Clara M. Gilbert was born on February 12, 1932 in Detroit, Michigan to the late Mable and Leslie Green. She passed away on September 12, 2018 in South Carolina at the age of 86.

Clara was the loving wife of Raymond, who preceded her in death in 1993. Cherished mother of Karen (Michael) Riley, Cathy (Robert) Leger, Raymond (Cecile) Gilbert and Robert (Karen) Gilbert. Proud grandma of Shawn (Wayne) Lovely, Susan (Michael) Osterhart, Melissa (Jason) Bennett, Matthew (Ashley) Leger, Christopher (Tatiana) Gilbert, Jennifer (Aaron) Peters, Rachel (Andrew) Madge, Lesley (Eric) Greene, Adam (Katelyn) Gilbert and Kelsey Gilbert and great-grandma of 15. Dear sister of Rose Armstrong and the late Elmer Green.

Clara worked for many years as a bank teller with Manufactures National Bank (now Comerica) while raising her family in Livonia, Michigan. Following retirement she split her time between Michigan and Florida, before permanently moving to Sebring, Florida. While there, she was active in the community, volunteering with the local theater and dancing with a local clog group. She was also a lifelong member of the American Legion. In addition to dancing and her volunteer work, Clara loved to hit the green for a round of golf or travel. She explored places near and far, from bus trips close to home, to trips throughout the US and Europe. Clara loved to get out and see the world.

A loving, kind, and independent woman, Clara will be deeply missed by all those who knew her.

Clara’s life will be celebrated with a Funeral Service Friday, September 21 at 4 pm at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 340 N. Pontiac Trail (3 blocks south of Maple) in Walled Lake, Michigan. Friends may visit the funeral home beginning at 2 pm.

In lieu of flowers the Gilbert family suggests memorial contributions to National Hospice Foundation.
