Alice Clayton
Alice Louise Clayton, 55, a St. Marys native, mother, sister and soon-to-be-grandma, passed away on Jan. 17, 2013, after a courageous six-year battle with cancer.
She was born Oct. 24, 1957, to Walter and Mary Gearing Scott, who are deceased. On Oct. 1, 1977, she married William Clayton, who survives.
Also surviving are two sons, Jason (Kaitlyn) Clayton of Neenah, Wisc., and Christopher Clayton of Plymouth, Wisc.; eight brothers and sisters, Larry (Dee) Scott, Carol (Barney) Klosterman, Tom (Joyce) Scott, MaryAnn (Bob) Laughlin, Nancy (John) Nester, Sharon Burden, Allen (Anne) Scott and Lee (Sue) Scott, all of Ohio; her loving dear friends, Sue (Jerry) Toerpe of Sheboygan, Wisc., and Lois (John) Stranz of Plymouth, Wisc.; and many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She attended Moulton Elementary School and graduated from St. Marys Memorial High School in 1976. She attended Lakeshore Technical College where she received her realtor's license.
She was employed at Fischers Cheese in Ohio and transferred to Borden's Foods in Plymouth in 1988. She also worked at Sargento Foods in Plymouth for several years and the last seven years as a real estate agent for Shorewest Realtors in Sheboygan.
She loved to shop and be with her friends but most of all spending as much precious time with her sons as she could.
