Claudette Walker Easley passed away peacefully to eternal life on Monday, July 17, 2023 in Cincinnati, Ohio. She died with family by her side at the age of 89.
On March 28, 1934, Claudette (nee Ritchie) was born in Charlotte and raised by her grandmother, Minnie Crowell Ritchie growing up in New London, North Carolina. She became an Xray technician and later worked in health services. She lived and worked for a time in Roanoke, Virginia. In 1970 Claudette married Dick Easley and moved to Bristol, Tennessee. There they attended the First Presbyterian Church, loved flowers, biking, and picnics at the lake.
Dick passed away in 2003 and in 2006, Claudette moved to Cincinnati to be closer to family. She joined the Mt Carmel Baptist Church, continued gardening, holiday decorating, shopping, tea with neighbors, and family gatherings. She visited friends both near and far, and loved vacationing at the beach.
Claudette is survived by her daughter Dawn (Ken) Bertsche, sons Bill Hatley and Steve (Clarissa) Hatley, grandson Mark (Pam) Hatley and their daughters Kennedy and Marina. She also leaves behind the loving care givers of The Kenwood Senior Star, her most recent residence, where she was fondly called ‘Momma’.
