Claudia A. (Rotondo) Murphy, age 84 of Valparaiso, IN formerly of Randolph, MA went home to be with the Lord on March 7, 2018 after a very courageous battle with her health. She was born at home on May 23, 1933 to Orazio and Rosemarie (Stella) Rotondo in East Boston, MA.  She married her husband of 50 years, Gene on June 11,1960.  He preceded her in death. They had the blessing of three children, two of whom she is survived by, Rosemarie (Chris) Gordon and Claudia (Robert) Bates and a son who preceeded her in death, Stephen Murphy. She is also survived by her elder sister, Josephine (Harry) Mayone, 13 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren, and many neices, nephews and friends.  Special mention is made to her daughters in Christ, Marilyn (Greg) Wert and Margie (Homer) Howard whom she loved like her own family.  Claudia was a member of Calvary Church of Valparaiso, where she was baptized, for many years. She enjoyed cooking, playing cards, traveling and most importantly being a mother and grandmother to so many. Our mother was a very social and caring person, who loved her friends as if they were her own family. After her transition to Life Care Center in Valparaiso, she made many special friends in the residents and caring staff of professionals there. They made her feel safe and "at home" in their care.
Her memorial will be this Friday, April 6th at Calvary Church, Valparaiso at 12:30pm.
  Friends and family may join us for a time of fellowship directly after. The spirits of our parents, who were lovingly referred to as the "Duke and Duchess" have joined Jesus in heaven.  They taught us that the love of family is always first. Their earthly remains will be interred at a service of remembrance at Belmont Cemetery in Belmont, MA on Friday, May 4th at 12:00 pm.
