She was a member of various quilt guilds as well. She continued to make and donate her work to various charities throughout her life. Claudia was predeceased by her husband, William (Bill) Failey, in 2012. She is survived by her three children, William Failey Jr., of Auburn, Maureen Naugle (Jeffrey), of Fayetteville, and Lynn Fahmi (Christopher), of Nanuet; and grandchildren, Cameron, Kyle, and Anna Naugle, Amanda and Alyssa Fahmi.
