  It is with great sadness that the family of Marian (Mary) Joyce DeLisle of Sterling Heights, MI and formerly of Bay City, MI, announces her passing after a lengthy illness, on Saturday, May 5, 2018, at the age of 85 years.  Mary will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 37 years, Edward DeLisle; Mary’s sons: Andrew  Gibelyou (Carla), Kevin Gibelyou, and Joseph C. Smith (Don) and stepson David  DeLisle (Donna).  Mary will also be fondly remembered by her 5 grandchildren: Andrea, Allen, Greg, Jennifer and Kristan as well as 12 great-grandchildren and many nieces, nephews and cousins.  Mary was predeceased by her son, Terrance Gibelyou; her sister, Shirley Richardson; and her mother, Clara Wynes and father, Nelson Blair.


  A quiet homemaker most of the time, she loved to go out dancing with her husband Edward.  She spent her free time knitting and crocheting gifts for family and friends, reading or playing games on her computer.


  Mary was a caring, giving and loving person and a woman of beauty and strength with a strong belief in God.  For all of us, especially Edward her husband, she was a precious gift that provided much happiness to those that knew her.
