August 19, 1953April 11, 2020

Claudia Jean Shellenbarger, 66, of Granville, OH passed away peacefully Saturday, April 11, 2020 at Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus, OH due to complications associated with a ruptured brain aneurysm. Born August 19, 1953 in Mt. Vernon OH, she was the daughter of the late Gene and Margaret Shellenbarger. Claudia was a graduate of Johnstown Monroe High School, class of 1971. She had a caregiving heart as a very young girl, she was always very fond of children and the elderly. After school she worked at various jobs, but the longest employment was working at her Dad’s gas station in Johnstown. She was a lifelong lover of dance and dogs. She loved collecting anything tiny and being with family. Claudia never met someone she was not willing to help and would give whatever she had to assist others. Claudia is survived by her beloved only child, Jarod Norris, his wife Christine and her grandchildren Evalynn and Clifton of Pickerington, OH. Also, she is survived by four siblings, Debbie Brooks – Upper Arlington, OH, Patty Robinson – New Market, MD, Clifton Shellenbarger – Utica, OH and Kimberly Williams – Parker, CO. A memorial service will be held later this year to celebrate her life.

I just don’t know where to begin. We had the best childhood from kindergarten until we lost you. Although we didn’t see each other often the last few years we still had that bond. Our rides to school with your dad, our numerous games of “kick the can”, church camp, the swimming pool, skateboarding down Upham Drive, I could go on and on. You were always in our lives. We got reunited when our sons met in Granville and became good friends and still are. You did raise a wonderful son. To your family ...Deb, Pat, Cliff, and Kim.....our sincerest sympathies, she will be missed. Always a bestie! Steve, Julie and family

You are my sister we were born so innocent so full of need, there were times we were friends but times we were cruel. Each night I’d ask for you to watch me as I sleep I was so afraid of the night, you seem to move through the places that I fear you lived inside my world so softly. Protected only but the kindness of your nature, you are my sister and I love you may all your dreams now come true. We felt so differently then so similar over the years the way we laugh the way we experience pain, so many memories but there is nothing left to gain from remembering faces and worlds that no one else will ever know. You are my sister and I love you.
