Cleo was born on July 31, 1919, in Benton Harbor, MI, to Frank & Elizabeth “Anna” (Hewitt) Antes. She was raised on a farm in Benton Harbor. She graduated from Benton Harbor high school. She married the love of her life, Fiore F. “Frank” Postelli, in Benton Harbor almost 80 years ago. For many years, Cleo worked in the manufacturing department at Quality Packaging. During her younger years, Cleo loved to square dance. She also enjoyed making jewelry, crocheting, and sewing clothes for her family. Cleo’s favorite hobbies were winning at BINGO and traveling with Fiore in their RV. However, what brought Cleo the most joy, was spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.


Cleo is survived by her loving and caring husband, Fiore; children, Frank “Ronald” (Annette) Postelli, Karol Schoenbaum, Robert “Bob” Postelli, numerous grandchildren & great-grandchildren, and her long-time, dear friends, Darlene Skinner and Mary Cozart Betts.

Cleo was preceded in death by her parents; and her six siblings; John, Dorothy, Jean, Eleanor, Marvin, and Leroy, who died in childhood.
