Claudia (Pomeroy) Astle was called home March 13, 2022 in Mesa, Arizona at the age of 87. Claudia is preceded in returning to her Heavenly home by her Father and Mother, Leslie T. and Norma Walton Pomeroy, her brothers, Norman (Mae), sister-in-law, Karen (Mick), her husband, Neil L. Astle and her eldest son, Rex.
Claudia was born October 12, 1934 in Salt Lake City, Utah. It was there that she and her high school sweetheart, Neil Astle, met and fell in love and were married and sealed in the LDS Temple in Salt Lake. They began building a life and a wonderful family, living in several cities over the years and visiting many others. She made many friends along the way, whom she cherished and was devoted to her entire life.
Like her beloved Grandma Walton, Claudia loved to cook and bake, and it was her great pleasure to feed anyone who sat at her table. She loved to play cards with her family and friends. Visiting with her family was her greatest joy. Claudia was an accomplished seamstress and loved outdoor activities, especially swimming. As a young woman, she was an amazing diver – a picture of her diving was even published in the Salt Lake Tribune. She also loved playing tennis. In 1979, Claudia moved to Mesa, Arizona where she resided until she was called home.
Claudia leaves behind many who will miss her, including her daughter-in-law, Kris Astle (Rex Astle), her son, Cal Eastley, her daughter, Kari Astle and her husband, Don, and her son Robert Astle and his wife, Jennifer. She is also survived by grandchildren she dearly loved: Kira Jefferson (Robert), Ashley Astle, Logan, Shayne and Kenzi Eastley, Erik Peterson (Kami), Kirstin Roper (Weston) and Kiley Kolodziej (Marc), and Chanara, Carissa and Cameron Astle. We can’t fail to mention her adorable great-grand-children: Sulivan, Gage and Rae; Davin; Kayden, Kysen, Canon, Jaxon, Harper Mae, Ellie; Ledger and Miller; and Elizabeth. Her surviving siblings are Mae Pomeroy (Norman), Mick Pomeroy (Karen), Larry Pomeroy, Ann Barney (Dennis) and Linda Lamoreaux (Edwin), all of whom she loved very much. Claudia has many nieces and nephews who also loved her very much.
Friends and family are invited to join together at her Graveside Service to say “good-bye” at the City of Mesa Cemetery on Monday, March 21 at 1:00 PM.
