Claudia Ruth Welsbacher

March 29, 1957 ~ August 11, 2018 (age 61)

Peacefully, on August 11, 2018 after a three-year battle with Pancreatic Cancer. Claudia was born March 29, 1957 and was preceded in death by her parents, Earl and Elsie Boustead. She grew up in Imperial, PA with her sister, Debbie (Edward) Heinz, and her brothers, Kevin (Wanda) Boustead and Earl Michael Boustead; she was a loving mother to Jason (Jody) Welsbacher and Jessica (Robert) Blystone; she adored her three grandchildren, Azure Book, Jason Easley and Benjamin Williams; she also loved her dog, Homer. For over 36 years, Claudia worked at Citizens Care taking care of special needs individuals. She devoted her life to caring for others, as she did even after death, when she donated her body to the Humanity Gifts Registry for medical discovery and research at the University of Pittsburgh. She loved the Pirates, fishing, camping and canoeing at Raccoon State Park, where a bench will be dedicated in her name. We want to express our deepest gratitude to her dearest friends and Dr. Christie Hilton and staff, Dr. Alfred Burgo, D., Kenneth Williams and the special individuals at Allegheny Health Network Hospice for their compassion. A memorial service will be announced at a later date. Arrangements entrusted to the ANTHONY. M MUSMANNO FUNERAL HOME, INC.
