On May 27, 2009, at the age of 28, Kristin Maekawa Claudi experienced a Sudden Cardiac Arrest at a local elementary School during a teachers’ meeting. None of the staff members in the meeting knew what was happening or how to help her. By the time paramedics arrived, there was nothing they could do for her. Kristin had passed away. Kristin is remembered for loving Italy and everything Italian. She loved her husband, her family, her students, and rainbows. She delighted in everything life had to offer. As a special needs teacher, Kristin enlightened her students with love, understanding, and passion. In return they adored her. She is greatly missed by everyone who knew her.
In loving memory of Kristin Maekawa Claudi
We love and miss you!
