Claudia Speckels

Claudia J. Speckels was born July 6, 1946, in Medesto, Calif., to Marvin and Beverly (Percival) Hall. She graduated from the University of California in Santa Barbara and married Jerome “Joe” Speckels in 1970. Joe’s job required many moves and they lived in numerous places in the United States, finally settling in Custer, S.D., many years ago.
Claudia enjoyed nature and being in the outdoors.  Watching the wildlife and the sunrises and sunsets were the highlights of her day. She was a devoted wife and mother and loved her family.
Claudia passed away Feb. 17, 2022, at her residence in Custer. She was 75.
She is survived by her husband, Jerome “Joe” Speckels of Custer; mother, Beverly Hall of Reno, Nev.; son, Tom Speckels of Anchorage, Alaska; daughter, Kay (Kraig) Speckels of Senora, Calif.; brother, Mark (Marge) Hall of Sandpoint, Idaho; sister, Sherry (Harold) Bollenbacher of Reno, Nev.; and many nieces and nephews.
