Claudette was born in Pennsylvania in 1937, was raised in Brooklyn, and remained a quintessential New Yorker all her life.

Her great loves were her family-her children Jessica and Sabrina, their husbands James and Adam, her grandchildren, Julia and Joshua Dabney, Miles, Isaiah and Ada Griffin, her sister, Dr. Harriette Kaley, and nephew, David Kaley, both of New York. She was predeceased by her husband Benjamin and her parents, Anna Lander Weintraub and Joseph Weintraub. Claudette's acting career spanned six decades and included roles on Broadway, regional theater, national companies, numerous television shows, voiceovers and commercials. Her website ( displays an actress whose beauty went hand in hand with a major intelligence, impressive range and immense talent. Competent in everything she touched, Claudette was funny, strong-willed, awesomely disciplined, relentless in her pursuit of excellence. A staunch feminist, she also actively supported several philanthropies and kept herself and those around her on their toes about their civic and personal responsibilities to the world. Starting from very humble origins, Claudette grew herself into an elegant, articulate, gorgeous woman who was universally admired. She was dazzling. She will be endlessly missed.

Claudette was memorable as Donna Marie Parker, the lady who fake-wed Charles Emerson Winchester III in a later episode of M*A*S*H. She gave a feisty, yet nuanced performance. Later to find that she was an accomplished stage actress. Given her performance mentioned above, that only figures. Prayers to her family, RIP Ms. Pick. We will not ignore the bride.

I loved serving on the Antaeus Board with Claudette and I love being one stage with her, sharing her dry wit and sly humor, basking in her beauty, intelligence, and elegance. She was admired and adored. O lady, you will be sorely missed and well remembered.
