Mary Claire Naumann “Claire”

January 31, 1955 - August 16, 2022

Mary Claire Naumann “Claire”, 67, passed to our Lord Jesus Christ on August 16th, 2022. Claire was born in Toledo, Ohio January 31st. She attended DeVilbiss High School. Claire moved to Fort Myers in the early 1980’s following her immediate family with the love of Florida.

She is survived by her loving children, Ryan P. Tansey of Fort Myers, and Shaun Locke (Rita Jackman) of North Fort Myers, FL; siblings, Marsha Shapland,(John) of Dunedin, FL, Scott Naumann of Scottsdale, AZ Mark Naumann (Pamela) of Fort Myers; grandchildren, Morgan (Junior) Colon, Hunter Locke, Ian, Lola, and Holland; great grandchildren, Jaxon, and Millie; as well as her beloved family pets, Gigi and Kyle.

Claire is proceeded in death by her father, John (Jake) Naumann; mother, Jacquelyn (Jackie) Naumann; sister, Mary Catherine (Kitty) Robinson; brother, John Joseph Naumann and longtime companion, Clifford Pong.

Claire had a passion for life. And was always present and kind. Her love for cooking and pleasing others was by far her greatest attributes. Her enthusiastic, fun-loving personality will be forever cherished. Claire had a tenacious love for animals and spending time with them on her back porch was her sanctuary. Her free spirit allowed her to be herself, no matter the company. Our most cherished memories of Claire were her singing her famous “HAPPY Happy Birthday” that was sure to captivate the room. She will be greatly missed.

I know you are soaring through the highest skies and delving the clearest seas, you are free.

Memorial Services will be held at 2:00 PM on Saturday, September 3, 2022 at Mullins Memorial, 3654 Palm Beach Blvd, Fort Myers, FL 33916. The family will receive friends for a time of visitation from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM.

Mullins Memorial Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Fort Myers, is entrusted with final care.

    I knew Claire because I am the other Grandma to Morgan and Hunter. Throughout the years Claire and I always had a very nice connection because of our grandkids – she was always likeable and a joy to talk with……always uplifting and always made me laugh. The thought of not seeing and talking with Claire again saddens me ……
    I too will miss her. ❤️

    Free spirit!! That’s so true… We shared a lot – the cat named Big Boy… many glasses of wine, and even Cliff! Cliff pretended to be my boyfriend once when I was selling my car 🚗 it worked!! Lots of stories and laughter shared across the cul de sac!!! Morgan- you threw her for a loop! Ultimately she was so proud of you and your family! Proud of grandson and her latest baby!!! She was a Bragging grandmother for sure! I will miss her ❤️🍷🐕🦋🐱… Beth

    While I was only fortunate enough to meet and interact with Claire a handful of times each was a blessing full of laughs and truth. Her excitement and energy will live forever.
