As a teenager, I admired Claudia Snyder. Her family attended our church, and I will always remember the fun evenings and get togethers several of our families shared. She had an infectious laugh, and those memories warm my heart. She was also my home economics teacher when I was in High School. And one year, she taught sewing. I wanted to be like her, a talented seamstress. She had great style, simple and classic. And I marveled at the beautiful clothes she made for herself and her daughters. Unfortunately, as eager as I was to learn how to sew, I don't know if it was just my pure ineptness or not knowing how to run a sewing machine, I never even got close to being mediocre. She made it look so easy! After high school, I lost touch with her and her family, but I will always remember Claudia for her kindness and classiness. May you Rest In Peace!

I have many memories of my sweet friend of many years. I was stunned and deeply grieved when I learned about Claudia's passing. My heartfelt sympathies go out to Paul, Abby. Becky, Rena, and Allen and her grandchildren. I also want to let Royce and the rest of her siblings how deeply sorry I am and pray God's comfort and peace with be with each one of you during such a difficult time. I can still see her sming face as she showed me her latest quilt she had made. We even went together to a quilt show at Silver Dollar City. Just one memory of many. Loded her.
