Obituary of Donna Marie Cloos
Donna Marie Cloos of Cape Coral was called home on Saturday January 21, 2023. My Mom was born Nov. 3, 1946 in Queens, NY to Joseph and Camille Schembre. She grew up with her two sisters Carol Smith and Cathy Cruz in New York and Newark, New Jersey. She met her husband Joseph when her cousin(his college roommate) asked if he could give her a ride home – of course he said “Yes!” They began their family and raised three daughters Debi, Michele and Tina at the beautiful Jersey shore. We moved to Cape Coral in the late 90’s and if you asked her, she hated it ever since! Mom loved the Fall and change of seasons. Christmas was her holiday, she loved earthy scents like patchouli and frankincense, crystals, crafting and had a huge heart for animals. And boy did she love her jewelry! A true Gypsy, with rings on almost every finger and toe. She was greeted in Heaven by her Mother Camille, Father Joe and Niece Chris Smith Moore. She leaves a legacy of love behind – Her Husband and best friend Joseph Cloos. Her daughter Debi and son in law Tom Fichter and grandson Thomas. Her middle daughter Michele and her four children – grandson Corey, granddaughter Desiree, grandson Trent and granddaughter Lilly. Her youngest daughter Tina and son in law Naldi Vazquez with three more granddaughters Camielle, Sofia and RyAnne. Her sisters Carol Smith, Cathy Cruz and brother in law Bob Smith. Nieces and nephews – Elena and Tommy Krumpfer, Angela and Derek Sherman, Robyn and Mike Smith, Tony and MM Cruz, Cristel and Eddy Ortoneda, Denise and Ricardo Figueroa, and many grand nieces and nephews. Mom was loved by everyone and had a huge extended family of friends most never referring to her as Donna but Mom, Mema or one of her favorites Mrs. C. Family and friends are invited to attend her memorial service on Monday January 30, 2023 – 11:00 viewing 12:00 service at Coral Ridge Funeral Home & Cemetery. 950 Chiquita Blvd S. Cape Coral FL 33991.
