Claudia McEuen

Claudia VerLynn McGuire McEuen, 73, entered into rest on October 4, 2021, in Fort Thomas, Arizona, surrounded by her family. Claudia was born August 15, 1948, in Salt Lake City, Utah. She was the first of two children born to James Claude McGuire and Verla Dutson McGuire who resided in Rose Park.

When Claudia was almost 6, her family left Rose Park and moved to North Hollywood, California for a short time and then to Fullerton where she was raised. Her only sibling, Timothy James, was born when she was nearly 10 years old.

Growing up, Claudia enjoyed writing books, drawing, speech, and drama, hanging out at the beach, vacations in the mountains, playing cards with friends on her dad’s boat, and visiting with family.

She began attending BYU in 1967, majoring in Elementary Education. It was there that she met Cohn Patrick McEuen. They were married almost four months later on January 29, 1971. After graduation, they moved to Eloy where they taught school for two years and then to Fort Thomas where they taught school and raised their six children. Claudia taught Kindergarten, 2nd grade and was the reading specialist. She taught with Pat in the computer lab and then taught in her own lab.

Claudia served in many church callings, including Relief Society President and teacher, Primary President and teacher and Young Women’s advisor, along with various other callings.
Claudia was a woman of great faith. She was known for her kindness, positivity, smile, laugh, friendliness and her love for her family and friends.

Claudia is survived by: her husband of 50 years, Pat; her children, Krista Mahan (Daniel), Kerri Napier (Sam), Kandace Bryce (Derrick), Kimberly Wood (Quinten), Kaycee Sulusi (Tavini) and Garrett McEuen (Allison); 26 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren; her brother, Tim McGuire (Lisa); and many nieces and nephews.

Funeral services for Claudia will be conducted Saturday, October 16, 2021, at 10:00 a.m., at the Ft. Thomas Chapel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Concluding services will follow in the Thatcher Cemetery.

Family will receive friends Saturday morning, October 16, 2021, from 9:00 a.m. until 9:45 a.m., at the Ft. Thomas Chapel.

Dear Pat and Family:
Katy and I send our condolences. Claudia was a wonderful companion and still is! Our love and sympathy to you and your family with this loss. We know "that same sociality that existed among us here, will exist among us there" is true and we look forward to that association again.
