Claudia Cordellia Vineyard, 86, of Wellington, died on April 30, 2023.
Born on October 8, 1936 in Qulin, MO to the late Ernest and Maudie (nee Martin) Maddux, Claudia grew up in Missouri.
Always placing God at the forefront of her life, Claudia was very active in her two Wellington churches, New Life Assembly of God Church and the Good Samaritan Church. She found great joy in being involved in almost every aspect of the service, from the music to the teaching. Alongside her husband, Claudia became an ordained minister. For many years, she also led Sunday services at the Elms Retirement Village in Wellington. Claudia’s Christian faith truly was a guidepost in her life.
Claudia was a very active participant in her family’s lives; she was always there cheering on her kids and grandkids.
Survivors include her children, Carl (Jennie) Vineyard, of Avon, IN, Daniel (Penny) Vineyard, of The Woodlands, TX, Kathleen (Hal) Stiles, of Wellington and Tamatha (Steven) Squire, of Sheffield Lake; 19 grandchildren; and siblings, Almira Vinson and Carol Moore, both of Poplar Bluff, MO.
A private service will be held with burial at Greenwood Cemetery, Wellington. Condolences for the Vineyard family can be made at: www.norton-eastmanfuneralhome.com.
