Cleve, Virginia L. "Gigi" (DeMann) Age 65, from Brooklyn Park, was granted her angel wings on April 24, 2012. Her final days were spent surrounded by family & friends after a difficult & courageous battle with lung cancer. We will miss her smile, great sense of humor and hanging out singing karaoke with her.

She was always there for those who needed her ~ merely to lend an ear or share her wisdom. She will be in our hearts forever & deeply missed by all.
