LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — Jeanne Marie Clemons was born Dec. 29, 1933, in San Francisco, California, and passed away June 1, 2021, surrounded by her family.

Jeanne was the only child to Ben and Emily Scott.

Jeanne would vacation with her parents, aunts, uncles and cousins in Lake County. In 1951 it was the year for Blue Lakes and when she met her soulmate, best friend and love of her life, Clyde. In 1952 they were married and were so for an amazing 66 years.

Clyde and Jeanne lived in the Bay Area for 32 years and raised three children. Jeanne was a homemaker and business partner to Clyde’s Tires. On the weekends she would help sell these tires at AC Flea Market in Castro Valley and later at the Freemont Drive-in Market.

Clyde and Jeanne had a summer home in Clearlake that they retired to in 1984 with children Karen and Rick following.

Jeanne continued as a homemaker and helped care for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Jeanne was a loving, strong woman with a pure heart and a family that was her life. Jeanne’s family was also blessed as she was their life and heart.

Everyday her family would come for morning coffee and in the evenings a glass of wine or two. She would have weekly calls with her son, John, and every Friday night with cousin Joan who both still lived in the Bay Area.

Jeanne was an extraordinary wife, mother, grandmother, Nana, cousin, sister and friend. All of those who knew her would say what a beautiful woman she was.

Jeanne is once again with her love, Clyde.

Jeanne leaves behind her daughter, Karen Morrell; son, Rick Clemons; son, John Clemons (Cheryl McAlice); granddaughter, Christine Gonzales (Edward Gonzales); grandson, Jason Clemons; grandson, Brandon Clemons (Sara Clemons); great-grandchildren, Elias Lee Clemons, Willie Clyde Gonzales, Jayden Paige Clemons, Kaylie Ann-Marie Armstrong, Madeline Raychel-Jean Armstrong; cousin, Joan Aylworth (Jim Aylworth); and “sisters,” Evelyn Clemons and Carol Wofford.

Private services will be held with family. Family asks in lieu of flowers please donate to the American Heart Association.
