Claudia worked for me for 3 years at East Coast Migrant Head Start Project. She always challenged us to do things the right way. She helped me understand the organization when I started. Payroll ran very smoothly, she would always go the extra mile to make sure it was on time. She even risked being stuck in a flood to ensure payroll would be on time. She did a wonderful job transitioning her duties to the payroll staff when it was time to retire. I have a lot of good memories of Claudia and I will truly miss her. Until we meet again my friend and colleague.

I had the pleasure of meeting Claudia at her salon, E.A. Wells Hair Design. We spent numerous visits over my year and a half of knowing her, talking about our love for cats. Claudia and I loved swapping kitty photos of our fur babies and sharing youtube videos! I loved hearing about Claudia's daily Crabree Valley Mall walks. Her laugher and smile will definitely be missing from the salon. We love you Claudia!

Claudia was a wonderful supervisor and mentor for me here at ECMHSP and she always was also so kind to me. We both shared a fond love of our cats often sharing gifts with cats on them to each other. We also shared the same birthday August 14th which I believe gave us another connection. I have so many great memories with her. She will truly be missed!

I was so saddened to hear of Claudia’s passing. Aunt Myra (Moms to me) always spoke so fondly of her nieces. I will remember her laughter and love of cats. She had such a loving spirit and was a gifted crafter (which I’m sure she got from her aunt🥰). Please know we are praying for you all and know this will be a hard season in your lives.

RIP Claudia. Thank you for all you did for me while training with you before retirement. The shocking news has made me sad knowing you are not a text or phone call away. A touch of you is still in the office with me. Your memories will be with us.

I was so looking forward to seeing Claudia at our 50th high school reunion. She was such a kind sweet soul. I don't recall seeing her since graduation. I am not surprised she did so well in college and in her professional career. My thoughts are with the family at this time.
