The sun rose on February 3, 1943 and the sun set on January 9, 2022 on Cloteria Gray. She was born to Alex Walker Sr and Kathrine Gray in Okolona, MS.
Cloteria Gray completed her education in Grand Rapids, MI. She also worked many jobs in her lifetime, including being a lunch helper.
She was a very outspoken person, if you didn’t want to hear what was on her mind, it was best to stay away from her. Clo (as she was affectionally called) was a very given person, if she had it, she did not mind sharing.
She was preceded in death by her father, Alex Walker Sr., mother, Katherine Gray, stepmother Luddie Walker, sons: Willie Ray Gray, Kevin Gray, and Michael Gray, brothers, Nolan Gray and Bobby Ray Elliott, Alex Walker Jr., and Dennis Walker, sisters: Birta Mc Collough, Carrie Grant, Mary Louise Walker, and Floradell Walker.
Clo leaves to cherish her memory, two sons: Terrill Elliott and Raykwon Gray of Grand Rapids, MI., four bothers: James (Helen) Gray of Grand Rapids, MI., Arthur Walker, Charles Walker, David (Lavern) Walker all of Kalamazoo, MI., seven sisters: Rubynell (Donald) Barbee, Jeanetta Walker, Terri Walker, Carolyn Walker, Sheila Walker, Sharon Buchanan, and LuAdah Standfield, all of Kalamazoo, MI., one aunt; Mary Louise Walker of Kalamazoo, MI., and a special cousin/friend Mildred Harris, also several nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.
