Alice Clay Obituary
ALICE MARKUS CLAY
With great sorrow we report that Alice Markus Clay passed away on January 13, 2018, after suffering a stroke. She was 75 and surrounded by four generations of her loving family.
Alice was born and raised in Racine, WI to Esther Held and Harold Markus. She attended William Horlick High School. At age 19 she moved to California and relished raising her four children, two grandchildren, and her cherished dog Daisy. She lived in Whittier, Anaheim, Yorba Linda, Canyon Lake and Menifee.
Her family was her greatest joy, including her devoted husband of 53 years Keith Clay, her three children Jon, Ron, and Eva Clay, her two grandchildren Amber and Crystal Clay, and great-grandson Bennett Buchanan.
She is also survived by her four beloved sisters and best friends, Joanne Wilson, Carol Falls, Lorie Sprague, Anne Yaktiyol, and also her brother Bill Markus. She was preceded in death by her son Shane Mark Clay in 1982. She will be buried and rest eternally next to him.
A consummate mother, homemaker, and crafter, Alice was an award-winning quilter and loved decorating, flower arranging, and Danish art collectibles. Her greatest talent was in her creative expression.
A memorial service will be held on Mon., Jan. 22 at 12:30 pm, at Memory Garden Memorial Park, 455 W. Central Ave, Brea, CA 92821.
