Nancey Clemons

October 3, 1956 ~ October 28, 2018 (age 62)

Nancey Lee Clemons, of Portland, Oregon died Sunday, October 28, 2018, at the age of 62 at Marquis Mt. Tabor Hospice in Portland, Oregon.

Nancey was born in Walls, Mississippi, on October 3, 1956, to Mary Clemons and Olonzo Clemons. Nancey grew up in Memphis Tennessee, and moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She became a resident of Portland, Oregon in 1992 and graduated with her Associate degree in Manufacturing.

She accepted Christ in her life at an early age and was the Matriarch of our family. She stood in strength, courage, determination and was the epitome of a “survivor.” Nancey's honest communication, sense of humor, sense of style and love for life will be greatly missed.

She was a strong independent mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and was loved by many. She loved gardening, decorating, painting, taking selfies and building puzzles. 

She is preceded in death by her father, Olonzo Clemons; mother, Mary Clemons; two Sisters, Jane Shelton, Eula Mae Davis and one brother, Mosil Howdor.

Nancey is survived by her daughters, Sharnissa Secrett, and Tiffany Olson; sons, Zavel Clemons, Odell Adams, Undra Adams, and Brenden Olson; 14 grandchildren as well as one great grandchild. She also leaves behind sisters, Emma Wilhite, Ernestine Clemons, Alice Clemons, Atlean Tyson, Sara Clemons, Betty Clemons, and Mary Brown; brothers, Olonzie Clemons, Jessie Clemons, Connell Clemons,  Donnell Clemons, Lawrence Clemons and Rodney Clemons and a host of nieces, nephews and cousins.

“Mommy we thank you, for your guidance, and passion to teach us right from wrong. We thank you for protecting us, and instilling in us loyalty, devotion, honor, trust and unconditional love. We may not be able to walk in your shoes, but we will never give up on your hopes and prayers for us.”

-Nancey’s Six!
