Claudia Dawn Stull
November 07, 1939 ‒ May 31, 2019
Claudia Dawn Stull, age 79, of Marion, passed away on Friday, May 31, 2019, at the Presidential Care Center with her loving family by her side.
On November 7, 1939, Claudia was born in Richwood, Ohio, one of three children of the late Fred Richards and Lena (Moore) Richards Fox. Losing her father at a young age, she was also raised by her step-father, Dewey Fox. She graduated from Marion Harding High School in the class of 1958.
For nearly ten years, Claudia had a job she loved at Epworth Preschool and Daycare Center, where she was a receptionist, helped with bookkeeping, and loved on the children of the school. She had hoped to work there many more years. Previously, she was a bookkeeper at Depot Sales in Marion.
Finding the perfect match for her, Claudia married Daniel J. Stull on June 29, 1973, at the Calvary United Methodist Church in Marion. They shared a love for traveling and were always up for an adventure together. She especially enjoyed joining Dan on his work trips to locations of her desire. Her favorite trips were to California, which was why she loved Tony Bennett’s song “I Left My Heart in San Francisco”. They loved recounting their many stories together over a good glass of wine.
An avid shopper, Claudia loved adding to her collection of outfits, shoes and perfume; and was well known at Elder-Beerman’s.
Having a huge heart, Claudia overflowed with love for her daughter, granddaughter and three great-granddaughters. She also was a cat lover, cherishing the companionship of her cats, Milly and Mabel.
She will be missed by her husband, Dan Stull; daughter, Cindy (Randy) Fritch; granddaughter: Danielle (Rylee) Miller; three great-granddaughters: Braelyn, Kinslee and Della Miller; a sister, Lauranel McQuistion; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Including her parents, Claudia was preceded in death by her brother, Vernon Richards.
Her family will greet friends from 10 – 11:30 am on Saturday, June 15, 2019, at the First Presbyterian Church, 143 S. Prospect St., Marion. Services honoring her life will follow at 11:30 am, with Reverends Dan Kiger and Rob Howard officiating. Family and friends will be encouraged to stay for a fellowship meal after her services. Burial will take place at a later date in Marion Cemetery.
Memorial contributions may be made to Homeless to Home Cat (Sanctuary and Animal Rescue), 1745 Marion Waldo Rd, Marion, OH 43302, or to the Hope Clinic (Wyandot County Humane Society), 9640 County Hwy 330, Upper Sandusky, OH 43351.
