Carole J. Clusiau

Carole J. Clusiau, age 79, passed away on March 19th, 2020 in her home town of Grand Rapids.

She was the supportive and loving wife of A. David Clusiau Sr. (Deceased) with whom she spent many years building a business, Clusiau’s Sales and Rental, and their family. She loved playing golf and breakfasting on Bismarck donuts and diet Coke. Carole did not like the spotlight, she leaves behind a full life of memories. She was well loved for her humor, generosity, and kindness.

She is preceded in death by her parents Thomas J. and Geraldine Corcoran; husband, A. David Clusiau Sr.; brother Thomas Corcoran; son, Michael Clusiau; and nephew, Greg Corcoran.

Carole is survived by her sons Dave (Kathryn) Clusiau Jr., Thomas (Krysta) Clusiau, her daughters Carrie Baucom and Boston Carter (Ms. Shannon Bath), sister in law Dianne Corcoran, her devoted care givers John (Tiny) Allen and Anita Allen, as well as 9 grandchildren, and 6 great-grandchildren.

She requested this photo* be used for her obituary, which was taken while undergoing treatment for lung cancer. Facing her life, and her death, with an unmatched strength of endurance, this photo reflects her determination as she survived a four and a half year battle with death.

Carole requested no funeral. Her cremains will rest next to her husband’s in the Itasca-Calvary Cemetery in Grand Rapids, MN.
