Claudia Hagge

Claudia passed away on Monday, September 11th 2018, surrounded by her family in St Louis, Missouri.

Claudia was born in Jersey City, NJ on October 18th 1954. Claudia worked at Model Optics in Woodstock for many years and recently moved to St Louis to be close to her family.

She was an avid bowler, a fierce board game champion, a computer wizard, and she had a lifelong love of cats.


She was predeceased by her mother Elsa Hagge, and her brother Richard Hagge. She is survived by two brothers, Karl Marcus (and his wife Julie) of Missouri, and Fred Weissleder of Kingston: three nieces, two nephews and several grandnieces and grandnephews.  She also leaves behind her beloved cats Buddy and Pita, and many friends who will greatly miss her sense of humor and quick wit.

In keeping with Claudia’s wishes there will be no services. Her friends plan to have a private remembrance in celebration of her life.

Expressions of sympathy may be sent to Constant, P.O. Box 246, Woodstock, NY.  Donations may be made in Claudia’s name to Ulster County SPCA.
