Claudia enjoyed her family above all else and she showed her many talents in creative ways including knitting, rug hooking, quilting, sewing (especially dolls and costumes) and cake decorating for members of family.
Her employment varied and included bookkeeping, winning multiple town elections for Tax Collector in Bethlehem and eventually Town Clerk– serving 20 plus years, retiring in 2011. She especially enjoyed conducting elections for local, state and federal office positions. She was an early volunteer as a Domestic Victim Advocate. Claudia was a breast cancer survivor! Claudia was presented with the “Challenge Coin” of the Command Sergeant Major of the Army William Kidd, for her work in helping families of the Littleton Army National Guard.
She died at peace with all family present. As difficult as her oncoming death approached, we all understood how she wanted to pass. She did it her way!
Her most recent appreciation was for the Face time Calls from Great Grand Daughter Maeve, as well as talking to loved ones.
