Claudia Rae Flora


Claudia Rae Flora, 74, of NYS Route 22, Willsboro, died Saturday, June 15, 2019, at the Elizabethtown Community Hospital in Elizabethtown.
She was born in Plattsburgh, July 3, 1944, the daughter of Claude and Dorothy (Stanley) Flora. She grew up in Willsboro and attended Willsboro High School.
Claudia received an LPN degree in Albany and soon after graduating, began a career at CVPH in Plattsburgh where she worked for many, many years as a surgical technician. After retiring she cared for her mother until her death and then began a nine year career with High Peaks Hospice of Essex County.
Claudia enjoyed having fun, telling jokes, being with her family and close friends, having cold beers, and raising hell.
You never had to worry about what Claudia was thinking, because she always made it known, even if you didn't want to hear it.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her brothers, Tom, John, and Stan; sister, Eleanor Stafford; and nephew, Spencer Stafford Jr.

Claudia's first words to me, "Don't touch my table"!
Scared me silly, but over the years at CVPH we got to be breakfast buddies, we were always early, so we chatted over coffee.
She was quite a character.
My thoughts are with her family and friends

So sorry to hear about Claudia. She had a heck of a personality, loved how she was so honest and said what she thought. she was a fun person to be around. Didn't know her well but met up from time to time and different eating places. Always a smile going on.

It was always good to know she was around in the operating room if you had a question. So sorry for your loss
