In addition to Claudia’s dedication to raising her family, she worked as a teacher, and owned and operated Jackson Hewitt Tax Service in Albuquerque, NM from 1996-2007.  

Claudia was an avid quilter and seamstress and will be remembered for all of the creative blankets, quilts, clothes, and gifts that she lovingly created for her friends and family. Claudia also loved to travel. During their retirement Ron and Claudia lived full-time in their RV for nine years and traveled all over the USA, enjoying extended periods of time in Aguanga, Calif., and Pendaries, NM.
