Vermillion Nov. 30, 1937 - Dec. 5, 2012 OKLAHOMA CITY Claudette, daughter of loving parents, Ned and Jean English, passed away on December 5th after a short illness. Claudette was a loved and valued mother, friend, and co-worker.Anyone who knew Claudette knew three things about her: her love for her children and grandchildren, her love for every stray animal she could find, and for her sense of humor. She is survived by her sons Timothy, Brian, and Dave Vermillion and grandchildren Jessie, Renee, and Graham Vermillion. Out of respect for her wishes, there will be a private memorial service only and she would love you to remember her with a donation to Pets for People Animal Shelter.
