Susan Jane Clear passed away November 17, 2020, at the age of 78. Her husband and love of her life Marvin Ray Clear (Fuzzy) preceded her in death by 11 years. Susan graduated from Putnam City High school and invested her life caring for others. She learned from an early age that joy could not be measured by physical abilities alone. She had a passion for doing everything she could to care for children and carried a high level of empathy for those with adverse life experiences. Her endurance with lifelong cerebral palsy and a battle with cancer fueled her passion.
Susan’s survivors include her son’s family; Gary, Sherri, and Taylor Clear; sisters Sally Grace and Sandy Gore and several nieces and nephews.
Susan was preceded in death by her husband Marvin Ray Clear, grandmother Lucy Ewing, father D.V. Baird, mother Lorene Baird, sister Sara Barnes, nephew Jay Goble, and niece Casey Scott.
