Obituary for Ione Christine Gilmore

Ione Christine Klever Carlson Gilmore was born on June 13, 1919 in Grant, Michigan. She was the second of seven children born to Edward and Ella (Wright) Klever. She graduated from Grant High School in 1937. She married Clifford Carlson on September 30, 1939. They were married twenty-two years and had four sons. They divorced in March of 1962. Later in May of 1974 she married Dale Gilmore and they were happily married until his death in March of 1993.
Mrs. Gilmore attended Grand Rapids Baptist Bible college during the 1950's for two years and was a member of North Casnovia Baptist Church for many years.

She loved animals, had a wonderful sense of humor, was kindhearted and was devoted to her family.
She was preceded in death by three sisters; Leone Hughes, Mabel Klever and Gloria Klever; two brothers; John and Larry Klever. Also, she was preceded in death by her daughter-in-law Jane Stockhill Carlson in 2009, her son Carl Michael Carlson in 2017 and her grandson Todd Michael Carlson in 2018.
Mrs. Gilmore is survived by her sons Gary (Carolyn) Carlson of Bailey, Denny (Ann) Carlson of Casnovia and Steven (Sherry) Carlson of Fremont, a sister Maxine Veurink of Grand Haven, 14 grandchildren, 28 great-grandchildren,4 great-great-grandchildren, several nieces and nephews and a step-son, Jim (Susan) Gilmore of Blissfield, Michigan.
