On Wednesday, October 17, 2018, Cleo Lessard, loving wife and mother of two children, passed away at age 89.
Cleo was born on August 31, 1929 in Twin Falls, Idaho to Elmo and Laura Green. Cleo worked in Business Administration starting as a billing clerk and worked her way up to Business Manager of Sunfair Auto Group in Yakima, WA. On February 15, 1980, she married Art Lessard in Hawaii. Cleo and Art spent the first half of their retirement traveling all of Continental U.S. In their 5th wheel RV. They only had one state left, so Cleo and Art with her sons and their spouses went on a cruise to Alaska. What a wonderful way to end their traveling days. After that she spent her time on her hobbies (ceramics and computers). She was known for her quick wit, infectious smile, and kind and compassionate spirit.
Cleo was preceded in death by her father, Elmo, and her mother, Laura, her brothers Wendell, Ronald, and Garland. She is survived by her Husband Art, her two children, Daniel, and Jerry with their wives, and several grandchildren, great grandchildren, cousins, nieces, and a nephew. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends. A funeral service will be held on Tuesday October 23rd at 10 AM located at Mountain View Chapel, 7900 E. Main St., Mesa, AZ 85207. Flowers may be sent to Mountain View Chapel or donations may be sent to the Alzheimer’s Association.
