Claudette N. (Green) Ford

d. June 13, 2023

Middletown, DE (formerly of Bushkill Township)

Claudette N. Ford, 76, of Middletown, Delaware, formerly of Bushkill Township, passed away peacefully surrounded by loving family on Tuesday, June 13, 2023, at Christiana Hospital in Newark, Delaware.  She was the wife of the late Craig M. Ford, with whom she shared 41 years of marriage prior to his passing in 2010.  Born in Camden, NJ, Claudette was a daughter of the late Harry and Charlotte (Loiret) Green.  She was a 1965 graduate of Stratford High School in Stratford, NJ.  Claudette was employed at Guardian Life Insurance as a customer service agent before retiring in 2010.  Prior to that, she was the manager of the jewelry department at the former Hess’s Department Store in the Palmer Park Mall.  Claudette was an avid collector of eagle figurines and a huge NASCAR fan.  Throughout the years, Claudette and her family were very involved with racing, and she was a member of the Lehigh Valley Quarter Midget Racing Club as well as the Garden State Vintage Racing Club.  Although she was passionate about racing, her grandchildren were her pride and joy.  Claudette absolutely loved being a soccer grandmother and cheering on her grandchildren at their games.  She was a member of Holy Cross Evangelical Lutheran Church of Moorestown.
