Tim, I am sorry for your loss. I recall Claudia coming out to our old timers games in Crown Point and cheering us on and telling you that your release was wrong on your curveball. Besides my Sandee watching our games I don’t think any other women could sit through our matches . May God help you through this difficult time in your life. Sincerely, Norm Blackford

Many great memories growing up. We would go antique shopping/browsing. Shopping at Pennie’s, She showed me alot of great disco music and shared her memories from that era. So many great times I wish I could list them all here.

Sorry to hear of Claudia’s passing. We worked at Porter Hospital together in Respiratory. She always was a joy to work with and was a very sweet soul. RIP Claudia.
