September 24, 1943 – January 29, 2021
at the age of 77 years:
Born and raised in Cornwall Ontario Claudette was not content to stay in one place. Her roving spirit brought her westward in search of new experiences and adventures.
Her first stop was in Regina where she spent many happy years and developed lifelong friendships.
Her travels then brought her to the west coast where she chose Enderby to spend her golden years. It was in Enderby she found her purpose and bloomed. Through her love for her community, she became a treasured volunteer with the Lions Club. Her dedication earned her the respect and admiration of her fellow lions who awarded her unanimously the Lion of the year award. Claudette’s quick wit and sense of humour will be greatly missed by all who knew her. She could be relied on always to help those in need.
She will be sadly missed by her children Kim (Gaston), Robyn (James)and Sara, her grandchildren Todd, Christopher, Kayla and Meaghan, great-grandchildren Cabrie, Karlin, Kayden, Logan and Leila, sister to Darlene Cooper, Bernice Guindon (pre-deceased), brother Kent Smith (pre-deceased), daughter of the late Robert and Eva Smith, beloved friends Kristi, J.C., Sharon, Jim, Janis, Hugh, Elaine Sharp, Jean Early and Marv Szilagyi, all her fellow Lions as well as the many more hearts that she touched.
As long as our hearts remember, our loved one will always remain there. Those lives you touched are feeling an emptiness that now can only be filled with wonderful memories.
A private memorial will be held at a later date.
The family would like to thank everyone for their words of kindness and sympathy
