Edna DeClerq

   Edna DeClerq, 90, of Gladwin, died peacefully Saturday, March 19, 2005 in the evening at Gladwin Pines Nursing Home.

   Edna was born on August 1, 1914 in Clare County, the daughter of the late Robert and Amelia (Helke) Fisch. She was united in marriage to Joseph DeClerq on April 15, 1946 in Detroit. The couple made their home in Berkley and Davison until moving to Venice, Florida in 1968. Edna resided in Venice for 35 years.

   She was a member of the Elks club for 30 years. She enjoyed bowling and playing cards with her friends. She was a strong woman with a mind of her own; there was nothing she wouldn’t attempt to do. Edna was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and friend who will be deeply missed by the many she has touched in her lifetime.

   Edna is survived by her loving daughter Marlene (James) Losey; dearest step-children Joyce Hohf and Paul (Mary) DeClark; cherished grandchildren, Cheryl (Marc) Fontenot, James Losey, Jr., Allan (Karen) Losey, Dawn (Randy) Thompson, Joey DeClark, and Eric Hohf; beloved Great grandchildren, Garrett, Douglas, Brandon, Alyssa, Emma and Adam; and dear sister-in-law and friend, Julie Bassett. She was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph, in 1976, her son-in-law Jerry Hohf, siblings, and two Great grandchildren.

   A funeral service was held Thursday, March 24 at Faulmann & Walsh Golden Rule Funeral Home in Fraser. Memorial contributions may be made to Our Savior Lutheran Church of Gladwin.
