Claudia was born in Waco, Texas, to Claude and Lillie (Cansler) McCall. Claudia worked for the LaVega School System for 25 years as an administrative assistant. She had a special gift with people, especially children. She was greeted every time she went to the grocery store by a child or a person whose lives she had touched. Claudia was a person who never met a stranger. She treated everyone with dignity and respect and lived her life as an example to others. Her strength came from our Lord and Savior. George said she had a direct line to Heaven. She was a tower of strength and a shining example to all who knew her.
She was preceded in death by her husband, George William; her parents; and a sister, Marie Holder.
Survivors includes her daughters, Susan Annette Powell and husband, John Charles, of West, Carol Elaine Mitchell, of Robinson, and Janet L. Goar, of Bellmead; son, George William Bill Mitchell and wife, Ruth Ann, of Bellmead; brother, Ronald P. McCall and wife, Marlene, of Houston; sister-in-law, Lillian Bancale and husband, Phil, of Bellmead; grandchildren, John Matthew "Jim Matt" Powell and wife, Bethany, of Troy, Charles Alan Powell and wife, Krystal, of Justin, Cody William Powell, of West, Randy Britt Mitchell and wife, Larissa, of Wiley, Andrea Danise Mitchell, of Bellmead, Shawn Michael Scheffer and wife, Angie, of Robinson, Jeremy Allen Scheffer, of Robinson, Joel Chance Goar, of Bellmead; great-grandchildren, John Caleb Powell, Ivan Britt Mitchell, Xavier Garcia Mitchell, and Sara and Katie Scheffer.
The family extends their gratefulness for the kindness and compassion shown by Patti Custer who stayed with us and gave us support during those last days. We also thank Pastor Frank Brown, Pastor Rick and Gloria Cobb, Pastor Steve Abbe, who visited and ministered to Claudia and her family when it was most needed. She had an angel in the Providence Hospice, a nurse named Shayla, and so many others that came and prayed over her and the family while she was making the transition from her earthly body to her heavenly one. She will be greatly missed. We can take comfort in the fact that she has a new body and a new life in Heaven.
Pallbearers will be John "Jim Matt" Powell, Charles Alan Powell, Randy Britt Mitchell, Shawn Michael Scheffer, Jeremy Allan Scheffer, Cody William Powell and Joel Chance Goar.
