July 24, 1937 - February 21, 2024


With profound sadness we announce the passing of Sarah (Sadie) Cleary (Née Bianchi). Loving Mother, Nana, Great Nana, Sister, Aunt and Friend.

She left us while sleeping peacefully at her home with family by her side in her 87th year.

Sadie was the beloved wife of John (Jack) Cleary (predeceased). Loving mother to Debra Marshall and Ron, Adele Marshall and Frank. Nana to Tiffany Marshall, Crystal Marshall, Amber Kinsley (Rob), Michelle Zylstra (Bryan), Sarah Gray, Shelby Marshall (Matthew), Brandi Hughes (Scott): Great Nana to Lyric, Hunter, Oliver, Brodie, Jax, Aubrie, Bennett, Sadie, Carmalita and Raine. Sister to Netta, predeceased by Ada, Benny, May & Bruno. Aunt to Paul (Charmaine) and Stephen (Nancy) who always referred to her as “Queenie”. And all other loved ones.


We would like to sincerely thank our Aunt Agnes Jean Bianchi (Bruno) who was our mother’s closest and dearest friend, trip and gambling buddy for being with us during her passing.

Sadie loved to cook, clean and watch Coronation Street on a Sunday with Pepsi and a treat in hand.


She couldn’t wait for her weekly outings to bingo with her daughters.

Most of all Sadie (Nana), loved her family and instilled in her daughters and granddaughters her strong values and witty sense of humour that has served them well.

She will be dearly missed but never forgotten.

We would like to thank Dr. David Stenning, Palliative Care given by the EMT’s, Bayshore Nurses and Coordinator.
