Claudette's love and dedication to her family knew no bounds. She was always there for anyone she cared about, going above and beyond to lend a helping hand. If you are fortunate enough to have earned her affection, she would do anything for you.

One of Claudette's favorite pastimes was bowling. Whether it was a friendly game with friends or a competitive match, she always found joy in the sport. Another activity that brought her happiness was visiting their Florida house with her husband Hal and spending quality time with their grandchildren. Watching them laugh and play filled her heart. She would spend hours soaking up the rays and enjoying the outdoors.
