"Have courage and be kind"
Claudia died peacefully surrounded by family at the Austin Hospital at 22 years of age.
She continues to be loved from afar by her mum (Kerstin), dad (Shane),
big sister (Danica), twin brother (Jasper), older sister (Sarah), brother-in-law (Matt), sister-in-law (Sheridan),
dog (Eddy), cats (Cleo & Neville), and countless others.
Claudia is such a bright, powerful soul, and she made everyone who met her a better person. She is extremely playful and cheeky, and she loved to play Barbies, board games, video games, and many silly made-up family games. Claudia was a wonderful artist; she loved designing fashions, colouring in, and practicing her handwriting. She has always brought people together and loved to party - her singing, dancing and DJ skills are unmatched!
However, it is her compassion and kindness that made everyone she met fall in love with her.
Her dream job was to sing lullabies to sick babies and pets, she took delicate care of her 8 baby dolls each day,
and she was ALWAYS there when her family needed her.
Claudia was cremated privately on 8th October 2021 (on a "Free-day Friday" - her favourite day of the week).
A celebration of her life will be held by Claudia's family in November, and we plan to make it a fabulous party full of music and colour.
It will be live-streamed for those who are unable to attend. Further details still to be decided and will be placed here when available.
