Also mourning her loss are her “bonus” daughter/best friend Susan Abel-Lapointe and her “bonus” granddaughter Sydney/little dumpling Lewis, and, of course, Finnegan her treasured fur-baby.
Prior to moving to Kelowna, Claudia spent many years in Edmonton raising her children. Always the entrepreneur, she kept her passions alive through a driving range, a curling shop, and a clothing store. A master story and joke teller, Claudia constantly kept people laughing. Known for her love of fashion and all things fabulous, especially leather and pearls.
Claudia lived a life full of friends, family, and fun. She loved many things including: golf; bridge; martinis; dinner parties; puppies; off-side jokes; dancing; curling; entertaining; country music; and, most of all, her family and friends.
The family thanks Stella, Sidney, Bonnie, Lynda, Ghislaine, Shirley, Cheryl, Dorothy, Ellen and all the “Bridge Girls”. These marvelous women were Claudia’s dearly loved and treasured friends who were there for Claudia over the years through thick and thin, laughter, and tears.
