At the time of her passing, she was Vice President and National Aviation Business Development Lead for Michael Baker International, a global engineering and consulting firm.

Preceded in passing by her grandparents, son-in-law Marcus Bacon, aunts, uncles, and cousins, she leaves behind her beloved dog Shelby and cats Gus and Holly.
At Claudias request, there will be no funeral or interment. It was her wish that no one mourn her passing. Rather, she wanted all to remember the good times, laughter, fun and fellowship that was shared throughout the years. She has asked that people celebrate her life by always being kind, loving and generous to one another and living life to its fullest.
In Claudias memory, her family requests contributions be made to the American Association of Airport Executives Foundation (www.aaae.org), the SAMA Educational Foundation, Inc. (www.secaaae.org), the Humane Society of the United States, or a local animal shelter of choice. McLane Funeral and Cremation Funeral Services. www.mclanecares.com
