A Few Words About Us

The Cleary’s story begins on St. Patrick’s Day in 1957, when Irish immigrants Frank Cleary and Mary O’Shea met for the first time in Detroit, Michigan. Marrying in 1958, the Cleary’s proudly raised six children with not only deep community roots, but a strong and virtuous foundation as well.
