Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
My condolences to family and friends of Claudette. She was a true friend and person who supported me in my lifetime. Although I now live in FL I have happy memories from the 70's of life as part of St Francis Community. She was an encouragement to my wife and I in our marriage. I will always have fond thoughts of her.

Claudette was a very sweet caring woman. She was very close friends with my mother-in-law, Marie. In fact, she borrowed her Bible when Marie passed. Claudette had an infectious smile and will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
