She is survived by daughter Silvia; son Dino; grandson Justin; brother Jules (Darlene); sister Diane and brother-in-law Fernando (Sally). Also nieces, nephews and many cousins.

Claudette moved to Port Alberni in 1946 when she was 3 years old. She met Dario Olivieri in 1961 and they were married in 1962. She became a hairdresser in 1962. Daughter Silvia was born in 1963 and son Dino arrived in 1966.

Silvia married John Vroone in 1989 and Claudette's beloved grandson Justin arrived in 1990.

Mom enjoyed gardening and loved her flowers. She loved to cook and bake and was hard to beat...she made Very Delicious meals and desserts. She became a C.W.L. member of the Catholic Women's League and decided to become member of Women's Italian Auxiliary.

She then became a member of the Italian Canadian Fraternal society for many years. Also, mom enjoyed to be in a singing group "The Country Echoes" for the old folks home.

Mom wanted to thank her sister Diane and her best friend Erika for continuing their phone calls for keeping in touch. Thanks to Dr. Hermann Nell and Home Support for continuous help and support.
