Claudette Lenore Winder
February 27, 1948 – June 23, 2021
It is with heavy hearts we say goodbye to Claudette Lenore Winder who passed away at Drayton Valley Hospital and Care Centre on, June 23, 2021 at the age of 73 years.
Claudette was an inspiration to all who were touched by her kindness and her caring, generous and cheerful manner. She liked to travel to anywhere the sun was shining and loved to be by the water, but not in it! But her greatest joy was her family and her face was illuminated whenever they were together. Claudette's roles in life were daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She performed extraordinarily in all her roles and she was loved and appreciated by all.
She is survived by her husband of 54 years, Brian, her daughters, Roxanne (Pat) Mulgrew, Joanne Houle, Leanne (Garrett) Wilkie, seven grandchildren, Tery, Shawney, Kassidy, Jayce, Keaton, Taysia and Callie. Also mourning her loss are bothers Bob (Pat) Ouelette and Luke (Jan) Ouelette and sister-in-laws, Madeleine, Marilyn Paulette and Gloria. She will be missed by numerous nieces, nephews, and countless friends.
Claudette was predeceased by her parents, Elie and Kathleen Ouellete and brothers, Noel, Hector, Cyril, and Rolly and sister-in-laws, Rita and Jayne.
The Winder family wishes to express their gratitude to friends and family for all their love, prayers and support.
