Claudia retired as a clerk from the United States Post Office in Hannibal. Prior to joining the Post Office, Claudia managed the Merchant's Credit Bureau in Hannibal for 11 years and also previously worked in accounting at Moorman's Manufacturing.

Away from work, Claudia loved to do counted cross stitch and created many beautiful pieces. A wonderful cook, Claudia baked with passion and was adventurous in the kitchen. She enjoyed reading cookbooks and was in the process of creating her own. Claudia also loved to read histories and nonfiction books. In her younger years, Claudia enjoyed camping, boating and spending time at the pool. Traveling with family or listening to her beloved 1950s and '60s music were a few of Claudia's favorites. Most of all, she loved the moments she shared with family and friends.

Claudia was a Christian by faith.
