Cleola Bleuel passed on to be with the Lord on Sunday, December 29, 2013 She spent her final earthly days with her family and friends that she loved deeply. Her family was the most important thing in her life. She loved to be with Howard, her husband and love of her life for more than 54 years. Her passions were travel, shopping, reading, games, and game shows but her family and friends were what mattered to her the most. Cleo loved the lord and lived her life as a shining example for all who were fortunate enough to know her. She had many possessions but the "things" in her room, home and vehicles were something "just right" and especially picked for one of her loved ones. She always had the perfect item, "Boo Boo" cure, and comfort food for all those she cared for and if you need love, you can always find it at "Nanny" and "Paw Paw's" home, Her children. Grandchildren and great grandchildren loved to snuggle up with her, talk with her about "everything" or just be with her. She was the most wonderful daughter, wife, mother, sister, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, cousin and friend. She loved life and showed us all how to love and be thankful. Thank you for all the fabulous memories and a lifetime's worth of love and affection.
In the words of Cleo Bleuel who spoke and wrote the most wonderful things, "she is a beautiful, perfect little Rose always....surely an angel in God's heavenly garden.
