Maupin. Claudia

Claudia Maureen Maupin, 76, oracle, mother, gracious friend, was taken from us on Sunday, April 14, 2013. Known for her boisterous laughter, her loving spirit and her ability to make every person she encountered feel valued, she was an angel who walked on Earth with us for too brief of a time.

Claudia was an amazing hugger. So good, in fact, that her family would have to prep any newcomers by giving them a “Claudia” hug in preparation. She would embrace you, ensuring that she was touching her heart to yours and then hold you … and hold you and hold you some more. She hugged like a true mother and because of that she became a surrogate mother to many.

Claudia loved to laugh; no, not laugh, giggle. If you ever had the pleasure of being with her while she was surrounded by her family, you would have had the pleasure of hearing her giggle echoed in all their laughter. It was in her laughter that you could hear her joy of life resonating in her soul. Her daughters, her sister, her granddaughters, all have that beautiful giggle and will remind us all of her when they laugh. May we remember to laugh often.

The most loving, compassionate woman you would ever meet, Claudia showed us all what it looked like to love as Christ loved. She showed us what it looked like to laugh in the spirit, to walk in the strength of the Quan-yin and to live in a state of complete and utter gratitude for everything and everyone.

Claudia enjoyed life. She lived to the fullest, bringing every cliché mantra to life by hugging longer, living slower and loving harder.

She is survived by her sister and brother, three daughters, eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Granza, Nana, Mama, Claudia, we would tell you to rest in peace but there is no need as you lived in peace, you lived in grace. So instead, let us tell you to fill us with your presence always and ensure that we never go a day without asking ourselves what you would do in that moment.

May your legacy live on in us and may we all live like Claudia, love like Claudia, and most importantly, laugh like Claudia. A memorial service will be held Saturday, April 27th at 3 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis at 27074 Patwin Road.
