Claudia Jean Gonzalez went home to be with her Lord on September 11, 2014, after a long battle with cancer. Claudia was born to Frank and Carmella Christopher in Greensburg, Pennsylvania on April 11, 1953, and went on to live an extraordinary life traveling the world and shining the light of Jesus wherever she went. Alaska became her home State after working on the pipeline in the 1970's. She went on to marry Ralph Gonzalez in 1982 after meeting on Kodiak Island. Her daughters, Michelle and Jennifer, were both born in Alaska where they reside today with their families and Claudia's most important earthly treasures, her grandsons RJ, Ryan, and Logan. Claudia loved more than anything to share the love of Jesus with the world around her and her extraordinary faith was a testament to that love to the very end. Her infectious laugh, bright smile, and compassion for others truly leaves this world at a loss, but a gain for the Kingdom of Heaven where her reward is great. A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, October 11, 2014, at The Bible Fellowship Church in Irwin, Pennsylvania.
