Shelley Ann Clayton Gause
April 15, 1950 - September 14, 2012

Our beloved Shelley Ann Clayton Gause left us on September 14, 2012 in San Antonio, Texas, showered with our deepest love, so much too early, at 62 years of age.

Shelley is the deeply loved wife of Robert J. Gause Jr., "the sunshine of his life," for forty-three years. She is the much loved and admired mother of four children, whom she called "our four wonders," Ryan, Jason, Lauri and Patrick. She is blessed with awesome daughters-in-law, Sarah Bristol Gause and Karen Teller Gause. Shelley lived for her family and adored her children, daughters-in-law and six grandchildren. Born on April 15, 1950, Shelley grew up in Bakersfield, CA, as the much-loved daughter of Barbara Clayton, currently of San Diego and the late George "Stillman" Clayton. Her younger brother Roark Clayton now lives in San Jose with his life partner, Gil Mendez.
"Shelley, we will someday wake up in Heaven together, and know the glory that God has planned for us. For now, I rest in the knowledge that you are enjoying the freedom of movement you have lacked these last three months. Please remember my touch, because I ache to hold you close again, and there, on that day, I will again. I love you so much, thank you for sharing your life with me." -Your loving and proud husband, Bobby
