Loree E. (Stanski) Sutto Clevenger, 79 - not 80 yet, she informed you, in case you made that mistake - died July 25, 2017 surrounded by family after a brief decline and a long fought battle with her twin nemesis, arthritis and anxiety. She was preceded in death by her brother, Loren (Barbara) Stanski and parents; Stanley and Wanda (Hooker) Stanski. She grew up in Fort Wayne, IN, graduating from Central High School. She was a generous nurturer and loved unconditionally. Though such rare traits to sustain, they came easily to her. She had four children; Mark Sutto, Melody (Stephen) Gordon, Michelle (Tim) Jackson, and Marla (Jeff) Wolf. She took on the task of supporting and raising a 10, 9, and two 5 year olds by herself, giving the best that she could. She fought like hell to raise them as happy, healthy children who believed that they could be or do ANYTHING. Her determination in the face of seemingly overwhelming odds was something to behold. Her enjoyment in reading historical novels, watching the Hoosiers and the Colts, drinking White Wine, babying her dogs, going to the lake or pool, playing Euchre, playing slots and yelling at Republicans on TV, helped along the way. Fortunately, her job with Indiana government led to a date with the second man who stole her heart. She married Robert "Bob" Clevenger on March 21, 1993. They lived happily together for 5 years going on regular trips to Las Vegas (Baby!) They struggled together for 2 years to beat his cancer until it took him away. The joys of her life are six grandchildren, Carl, Jamie, Sabrina, Tiffany, Zachary and Douglas and two great-grandchildren, Trevan and Oliver. She loved attending sporting events, music recitals, plays or any school activity they were involved in. She glowed with her love for them and them for her. Her children and grandchildren would have loved to throw her an 80th birthday party. Another get together will have to suffice, but it is a poor substitute. A memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers (she was horribly allergic) please make a donation to the charity of your choice. She liked charities that helped children, single moms, and animals.
