She was a spitfire who did it her way. Claudine worked everywhere from PF Collier to McMillan Publishing to Singer Sewing Machines to Moorestown High School. They used to call her “La La”: she sang the whole day through. If her T.V. was on she’d probably be checking out some Duck Dynasty, Pickers or Jeopardy. Claudine held on tightly to her independence and was always a spirited babysitter for her grandkids. She never lost her taste for Boost.
She is survived by her children: Kathy Donovan, Debbie (Les) Foster, John (Galina) Donovan and Walter (Lori) Donovan; grandchildren: Sean (Lu) Foster, Emily Donovan, Walter Donovan Jr. and Katerina Donovan; great-grandchild: Milena Foster; and siblings: Blanche Rastetter; Sonny(Chong Ye) Slater and Irene (Ron) Lyter. She was pre-deceased by her brother, Lester.
Come celebrate 74 great years Friday December 30, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Sweeney Funeral Home, Riverside where there will be a 1 p.m. service.
