King, Claudette Anastasia (Burke) – Evanston, Richmond Co. Today we express our profound thanks to Claudette Anastasia (Burke) King for filling her 57 years of life with laughter, generosity and kindness. Cancer took her on the rainy morning of Saturday, December 2, 2017 surrounded by her loved ones after a month’s long battle which she fought with her characteristic humor and boundless courage.

Born on October 12, 1960, she was the youngest of three and is reunited with her parents, Alex and Amelda Burke, brothers, Augustine and Mark, in eternity; sister, Mary  and brother, John Joseph both of whom passed away at birth.
Her love of animals and colorful language is carried on in life by her loving husband, Joey, children, Andy, Patrick, and Alyson (Adam Burke) and her absolute pride and joy, her granddaughter Elena Mae. She also cared for and took great delight in all of her fur babies, Mocha, Nissa, Tela, Rocky, Bell, Dallas and her grand-fur babies, Abby, Susan, Jasmine and Myla.

If we can judge a person’s character by how they treat animals and those weaker than themselves, Claudette could be considered saintly. Her work as a CCA at Richmond Villa, St. Peter’s was just another way she made this world a better place for others. While she was always uncomfortable being the one taken care of, she and the family would like to express their eternal gratitude to all the staff of the Victoria General Hospital, especially the 8th floor BMT team and 3rd floor ICU team.

Visitation will be from 2-9 p.m. Friday, December 8 in the River Bourgeois Visitation Parlour, River Bourgeois. Funeral mass will be 10:30 a.m. Saturday, December 9 from St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church, River Bourgeois with Father Antolin Asor officiating. Burial will follow in the parish cemetery.

Donations can be made to the River Bourgeois Community Services Society for the splash pad project. Funeral arrangements are under the care and direction of the Dennis Haverstock Funeral Home, St. Peter’s. Words of comfort may be forwarded to the family at: www.haverstocks.com
