Cleavene Elliott, Spearman

May 30, 2024

Our dear mother Cleavene Elliott sadly passed away on May 05, 2024, at the age of 89. Her dream was to get married and have children. She dedicated her life to being a fantastic stay- at-home mother. She was a wonderful mother who was always there when we needed her. She had many grandchildren who she loved dearly. She was a constant figure in the lives of her grandchildren as she excelled at supporting them through the many passions and difficulties of their lives. She made it her mission to improve the lives of her children and grandchildren, always stating that she wanted a large family because she grew up as an only child. Her sweet memory will remain forever in our hearts.
