Obituary of Claudia Woodrich

Claudia was known as always being happy and upbeat. She left an impression on everyone she met because of her positivity and infectious laughter. She will be remembered as a wonderful and loving mother, grandmother, companion, and friend. Claudia loved spending time with her kids and grandkids. She attended every sporting event she could when any of the kids were playing.

One thing Claudia was not really known for was cooking but she could make a great reservation. She and John always joked that they never had to go grocery shopping because they never ate at home. Claudia preferred to spend her time at home reading and relaxing. She loved playing the organ and played whatever music her fingers could create. She and John enjoyed playing golf together, frequenting Craigburn and a few other courses. Anyone who visited Claudia at home may have noticed that trinkets covered every inch of the place. Please take a plastic tea light candle to start a knick knack collection of your own to ensure Claudia is always close to your heart.
