This little gal got off to a rough start in
life, but that has never slowed her down.
She weighed 3 lb. 15 oz back when 'preemies'
had a hard time making it. She was unaware
of that, so she just hit the floor running.
Her mother had been told that if she carried
through with her pregnancy she would probably
forfeit her life. She chose to follow it through...
and she did, indeed, forfeit her life. She
died just a few short weeks after Claudia's
is the runt of the litter... at least we accuse
her of being that. At 5'5" she is by
far the shortest in the gang. What she lacks
in height, she makes up for in ambition, and
is like 'spit on a hot skittle.' She accomplishes
in a day what many people can't accomplish
in a week. She has multiple talents -the most

members and friends have been fortunate enough
to receive a handmade quilt or afghan from

is happening in the family, in the community,
and makes sure we are all aware. She is constantly
doing sweet, thoughtful things for those around
her. As a teen she had two friends who were
deaf. She learned basic sign language from
them. As an adult she has kept learning and
is now quite conversant in ASL.

years ago. She is constantly doing family
research and encouraging or teaching others
to do the same.
met her sweetheart, David, at BYU.
They have two darling daughters, Dione
-who recently married- and Kendra.
They love to hunt, fish and camp together.
It has surprised our family that C.J.
often gets her own deer and elk. Thank
heavens she shares with her family!
We hope you get to meet her!
