Shortly after the end of World War II, Frank and Claudine located to Boulder, Colorado, area, where Frank graduated from the University of Colorado. Claudine was employed by the University of Colorado for 27 years, 25 of which she was the managing editor of the Colorado Quarterly. After that, she assisted Frank in the work he loved, buying and remodeling old houses, then selling or renting them.
In the mid 1990s they moved to the Grand Junction area and spent more and more time in the Moab area, moving there in 2005.
Claudine was preceded in death by her husband Frank in 2008 and a sister Floye A. Perkins.
At Claudine’s request cremation has taken place and there will be no services. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Grand County Hospice in her name.
A special thanks to the staff and individuals who have helped Claudine through the years and in her final days: Grand County Hospice (Nina, Jessica, Marilyn and Terry), Rocky Mountain Home Health (Barbara), Mike Price, Annie Sly, Marilyn Coffee, Dave and Tere Powers.
