Ava Marie DeClue of Sullivan, MO, departed this life in Sullivan, on November 6, 2012, having reached the age of two months and fifteen days. Ava was born in Sullivan, daughter of Alicia Marie Strickner and Brian Michael DeClue, known to most as Michael. Ava was blessed to have sister.

Ava is survived by her parents, Alicia Strickner and Michael DeClue of Sullivan, MO; by her grandparents, Jenny Strickner of Sullivan and Stacy Mills and fiancé, Michael Skaggs; by her great-grandparents, Sandra Junge of Sullivan and Mary DeClue of St. Clair, MO; by her sister, Taysha-lynn Strickner of Sullivan; by aunts, uncles, great-aunts and uncles, cousins and many friends of her family.

Ava was preceded in death by her grandfather, Barry Strickner; and by her great-grandparents, Gregory Junge and David DeClue.

Although Ava’s time on earth was brief, she brought great joy to her family and held a special place in each of their hearts. As written by an unknown author, “When God calls little children to dwell with Him above, we mortals sometimes question the wisdom of His love…………………………..So when a little child departs, we who are left behind must realize God loves children, Angels are hard to find.” A sweet and darling daughter, granddaughter, great-granddaughter, sister, niece, great-niece and cousin, she will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all who loved her.

Graveside services were held at 2:00pm on Friday, November 9, 2012 at Crestview Memorial Park near St. Clair, MO with the Rev. Don Covington officiating. The family was served by Russell Colonial Funeral Home in St. Clair, MO. Memorials may be made to the family.
