Cleo  Ekstrom (Bauer)
Cleo Marie Ekstrom

Passed away peacefully, with her loving family by her side, on January 17, 2018. Cleo was born March 15, 1941 to the late Joseph and Anna (Kirchner) Bauer. On November 24, 1962, Cleo married the love of her life, Michael Ekstrom, who preceded her in death on November 5, 2012.

Beloved mother of Terri (Jack Carter) Powers, Jackie (Kurt) Clancy, and Mike (Alicia) Ekstrom. Best MeMe in the world to Rachel (Chris) Steer, Nikki Powers, Kelsey (Peter-Paul) Dzwilewski, Bridget Clancy, Ali Ekstrom, and Grant Ekstrom.

Survived by her dear brother Charles (Joan) Bauer. Cleo will be missed by many nieces and nephews.

Cleo was dearly loved and will be missed by her family and many friends. Cleo wished for others to know that she was content with where she’d been and proud of who she was. Her most cherished times were with her family and friends. Cleo didn’t want anyone to mourn her death, but rather celebrate her life with the memories they hold close to their heart.
