September 25, 1936 - February 3, 2017
Early Friday morning on February 3, 2017, God looked about His garden and decided there was a flower missing. As He looked around, He saw this bright light shining on this one beautiful blossom. That flower was Clea Esther Ellison Greer. She born September 25, 1936 to the late Cleveland and Eliza Ellison. She was a life-long member of Blairs Chapel C.M.E. Church where in her youth she served as an active member of the choir and as church secretary for a number of years. She faithfully attended Blairs Chapel until her health failed, but she kept her hand in God’s hand as she kept a close walk with her Savior Jesus Christ. In life Clea Esther was a friend to everyone. Always one to talk and laugh, Clea Esther never met a stranger. Mrs. Greer was preceded in death by her husband, John Wesley Greer Sr. and her parents, Cleveland and Eliza Ellison. Five brothers also preceded her in death, Floyd, Robert, Raymond, James and Laverne Ellison. In her declining year, she was lovingly watched over on a daily basis by her son, John Greer Jr. and daughter Gail Harden with help from close friend and cousin, Barbara Ann Grimes. She leaves on this earth to follow her but hopefully not to grieve her the following: three sons, Michael Wayne Ellison of Henderson,TN; John Greer, Jr. of Medon, TN and Kenneth A. Greer of Columbus, GA., four daughters, Wanda E. Thomas (Steven) of Decatur, AL, Carolyn D. Crawford (John) of Jackson, TN, Gail A. Harden of Medon, TN. and Kimberly A. Hendriks (Maxx) of Huntsville, AL. Grandchildren: Darius M. Greer, Kenneth Greer, Jr., (Lindsey), Nicole Greer, Candice Turner, (Najee), Kendrea Greer, Michael Thomas, Breona Harden, Taneka Cole, (Hakeem), Ariel Ellison and Christina Crawford. Great grand-children: Diamond, Emerald, Troy, Jaidyn, Willow, Kinsleigh, Arielle and Kailee. Two sisters, Lizzie Mae King, Saginaw, MI, and Fannie Thompson Patrick, Denmark, TN and two brothers; Roy Ellison of Flint, MI, and Willie Ellison of Denmark, TN, (Deirdre); three sister-in-laws: Mrs. Earline Lacey of Medon, TN, Deirdre Ellison of Denmark, TN and Evelyn Ellison, Jackson, TN, a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
