Claudia taught home economics, English and art at Skykomish High School until she and Bob retired in 1982. After retiring, Claudia and Bob moved to Leavenworth, Washington. She enjoyed golf, gardening, and quilting. She especially enjoyed quilting, and many of her quilted wall hangings hung in the local Catholic Church in Leavenworth, where she volunteered as a Eucharistic Minister and made many beautiful floral arrangements for the church. Claudia will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
