Clotilda Elise “Cloe” Nisbet (nee: Dryden) of St. Louis and formerly of Cuba, Missouri was born on Monday, April 14, 1930 in St. Louis, Missouri to the union of Winton F. and Marie L. (Nee: Karst) Dryden. She left from this life on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 at Mary Queen & Mother Center, St. Louis at the age of 89 years.

She graduated from St. Marks High School and attended Maryville College. Cloe (as her family and friends know her) worked at Catholic Hospital Association and Kellogg’s before marrying George H. Nisbet on January 8, 1955.

Cloe and George had seven children. They lived in south St. Louis before relocating to O’Fallon, Illinois for five years. When the family moved back to St. Louis in August 1962, they settled in Vinita Park and were residents for over thirty-two years. The family belonged to St. Rita Catholic Church during those years.

When the last of the children were in high school, Cloe went to work for Wexford Labs. After several years she moved to Washington University’s food service company. She retired from there in 1993.

Cloe and George fulfilled their dreams of moving to a farm and owning a few horses in 1994. They found a beautiful place outside Cuba, Missouri and built their house. They enjoyed their life there immensely and were even happier when their kids and grandkids visited.

Cloe had a pair of binoculars on a table by the large living room windows so she could watch the many birds and various wildlife that came to their yard and pastures. While in Cuba, they belonged to Holy Cross Catholic Church, and became valuable members and volunteers for the community.

Cloe enjoyed riding horses, playing volleyball and basketball, playing the piano, working crossword puzzles in ink, playing solitaire, bridge, rummy, crocheting, knitting, reading, listening to St. Louis Cardinals baseball even while enjoying camping trips to Sam A. Baker State Park and other places, St. Louis U Billikens basketball, and Blues hockey.

Cloe is preceded in death by her parents; one son Mike Nisbet; brothers and sisters Joe and wives June and Barbara Dryden, Marie Lou and husband Ed Sexton, Mac and Marita Dryden, Sr. Marie Angelique Dryden OP, Winton Dryden, Louis Dryden, Nancy and husband Bob Hinkebein; brothers-in-law Mike Wagner and Jack Flynn and other family and friends.

Those who are left to treasure her memory and to continue her legacy are her loving husband of sixty-five years George H. Nisbet of St. Louis, Missouri; six children Rick and wife Lori Nisbet of Indianapolis, Indiana, Janet and husband Mike Sibenaller of Hornick, Iowa, Bob Nisbet of Bridgeton, Missouri, Ginny and husband Scott Savage of Rome, Georgia, Angie and husband Tom Schilly of Charlotte, North Carolina, Pat and wife Lisa Nisbet of Wentzville, Missouri; seventeen grandchildren, Matthew Nisbet and Nicolas Nisbet of Indianapolis, Phil and wife Taylor Sibenaller of Storm Lake, Iowa, Nick Sibenaller of Des Moines, Iowa, Kate and husband Josiah Schiller of Sioux City, Iowa, Greg and wife Beth Sibenaller of Lewisburg, West Virginia, Beth Sibenaller of Hornick ,Iowa, Rick and wife Lacy Savage of Ball Ground, Georgia, Kristen and husband Jonathon Harris of Rome, Georgia, Kelci Schilly of Lawrence, Kansas, Tyler Schilly of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Haley Schilly of Dallas Texas, Colin Schilly and Caleb Schilly of Charlotte, North Carolina, Allison Nisbet, Joe Nisbet, and Dan Nisbet of Wentzville, Missouri; seven great-grandchildren Alaina, Charlise, Kinley, Emery, and William Sibenaller, Gregory Harris, and Russell Savage; sisters Gerry Flynn of St. Louis, Missouri, Sr. Winton Frances Dryden OP of Sparkill , New York, Sr. Constance Dryden RSCJ of St. Louis, Missouri, Carmelite and husband Rod Anderson of Taylor, Michigan, and Anne Wagner of Fort Belvoir, Virginia; sisters-in-law Rosemary Dryden and Mary Ann Dryden of St. Louis, Missouri; nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, cousins and a host of other relatives and friends.
