Obituary for Esther May Kleis

Esther May Kleis, age 96 of Oxford, passed away at home on February 19, 2016. She was preceded in death by her husband of 41 years, Otto D. Kleis. Esther is survived by her two daughters, Sharon Boothe of Oxford and Donna (Joe) Gretka of Hale, MI; Grandchildren, Kelly (Doug) Davis, Brian (Kirsten) Boothe, Kristin (Paul) Conte and Kevin (Kristen) Gretka; Great-grandchildren, Kaden, Gabriel, Chloe, Lily, Kendall, Muriel, P.J., Douglas and Zachary; as well as many nieces and nephews. In addition to her husband, Esther was also preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Lena Snover, her twin brother Chester, her brother Richard, and her three sisters, Beulah, Delores and Lucille.

Esther had a passion for the challenge of a good crossword puzzle. She enjoyed many creative talents such as embroidery where she would create keepsakes such as tablecloths, runners, and special wedding mementos for each of her grandchildren. She was an honest and forthright person and enjoyed the simple things in life such as sitting in her backyard while quietly watching the deer, birds and surrounding Michigan nature. Children brought happiness to her heart and there wasn’t a baby she didn’t try to hold. She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her. The family knows that they now have a very special guardian angel watching over them.

Friends may visit with the family on Sunday, February 21st from 5pm to 8pm at Lynch & Sons Funeral Directors, 39 W. Burdick, Oxford, MI. A Funeral Service will be held on Monday, February 22nd at 11:00am with Rev. John Ball officiating. Visitation on Monday will take place from 10:00am until the time of service. Interment at Butman Township Cemetery in Gladwin, MI. Memorial contributions to either the American Cancer Society or Hometown Home Health & Hospice are appreciated.
