It is hard to believe that it has been over a month since my mother, Mary Alice Streeter, passed away. She, like my father, Clarence Streeter, loved this town of Port Clinton. They were both raised here as children and felt this was a wonderful town in which to live and raise a family. Dad even said to me one time while we were walking near the lake, “I think Port Clinton is God’s country, why would anyone want to live anywhere else?” To which I responded, “I agree with you, Dad.”
