Claudette was a caring and loving person who loved her family and friends dearly. She loved anything to do with Bruce Springsteen, George Thorogood and Harley Davidson. As kids growing up, she would teach us to scream, whistle and post thumbs up anytime a Harley drove by. She loved watching Hockey and Playing Baseball. She was a beautiful lady and always made sure she looked her best. She always enjoyed getting together with family during special occasions. Claudette enrolled and successfully achieved her ECE 2 in 2010 and developed and maintained many friendships with her graduating class. She then worked in the child care field for many years after.
Claudette had a special relationship with our late brother Rene, and we are comforted in knowing they are together once again.
The family would like to Thank the C&C of the Berens River First Nation, the staff at the Southeast Personal care home and the dialysis unit at Sevenoaks.
