Sharalee A. (Cline) Presti

NEGAUNEE, Mich. – Sharalee A. (Cline) Presti, age 64, of 201 E. Case Street, Negaunee, entered eternal life Monday March 4, 2013, at her home in the loving, comforting care of her family and Lake Superior Hospice.

Born November 29, 1948, in Cleveland, Ohio, a daughter of James and Clementine (Rasicott) Cline, Sharalee was raised in Marquette, and graduated from the Marquette Senior High School.

Sharalee possessed a kind and gentle spirit, always putting others first, and her love for her family, especially the grandchildren, was very evident. She was a “mom” to everyone, caring for her own children, as well as, the neighborhood kids who frequently were in her home. The doors to her home, especially the kitchen, were always open and her kind heart available to all. She often befriended complete strangers, helping wherever she could, and stories of her kindness were many times retold to family members. Sharalee enjoyed being a homemaker and, when not attending to the needs of others, she loved to read, listen to music, and watch old movies.

Survivors include her loving husband of 43 years, Richard C. Presti; daughters, Jennifer Presti of Cleveland, OH and Kristian (Gary) Shier of Negaunee; sons, Randall Presti and Kelly (Sherry) Presti both of Cleveland, OH, and Jamie Presti of Negaunee; ten grandchildren, Alexis, Taylor, Garbiel, Cheyanne, Rosemary, Brooklyn, Brandie, Wyatt, Mackenzie, and Makayla; and a soon-to-be expected great-grandchild.

The family will receive relatives and friends at the Fassbender Funeral Home on Thursday March 7, 2013, from 4:00 p.m. until the time of service at 6:00 p.m. Rev. Leon Jarvis will preside. In lieu of flowers memorials can be directed to the family.
