Antique Vintage 04


Claudia (Fleming) Jorgensen

June 2, 1921 ~ December 31, 2018 (age 97)

On New years Eve 2018 our loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother and friend passed away at her Assisted Living home, Lotus Park in West Haven.

Claudia was born in Idaho Falls, Idaho on June 2, 1921 to Claude Fleming and Alice Imogene Weirman.  She married her best friend George Emerson Jorgensen on October 11, 1940 in Salt Lake City.  Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple.  She and Emmy lived in Tooele for many years raising their three children, Samuel Claude Jorgensen (Marlene Nix), Karyl Warnick and

 Meri-Elyn Arnout.   She worked as a Nurses Aid at the Army Hospital at Tooele Ordnance Depot and later as a Dental Assistant for Dr. John Burgoyne.  She and Emmy were very active in the Bit and Spur riding club, appearing in many parades and rodeos over the years.

She was a stalwart member of the Greatest Generation, struggling through the depression years as a young woman and raising her children during the war years.  Like many families of the time she worked hard and lived frugally.

She is survived by her three children, seven grandchildren, eighteen great-grandchildren, thirteen great-great- grandchildren, as well as one sister, Joyce Williams, Newcastle, California

The family would like to thank all of those who have cared for her these past few years.  The entire staff at Lotus Park were very caring and loving to her.  She loved her home and enjoyed interacting with the staff and her friends there.  Her hospice aides and nurses from Inspiration Home Health and Hospice and Brighton Home Health and Hospice are very special people and their love and care during moms’ final days is greatly appreciated.

Funeral services will be held Tuesday, January 8, 2018 at 1:00 PM at Tate Mortuary 110 South Main Street Tooele, Utah.  A viewing will be held 12:00 to 12:45 prior to the service.

Interment will be held at the Tooele City Cemetery.
