Claudette Jean Langdon, age 80 of Burlington, Washington peacefully passed away February 4, 2021. Claudette was born in Rio Tinto, Nevada before her family relocated to Tacoma, Washington. Claudette met the love of her life, Bernard "Buck" of 58 years at the University of Washington Dental Lab office where they both worked. Later Buck and Claudette opened their own Dental Lab where she gave her heart and soul for many years. Claudette loved traveling and looked forward to vacationing in Maui every year creating fond memories and lifelong friends. She loved whales, lighthouses and collected various trinkets and paintings. She had a passion for birds and flowers and spent many hours in her yard enjoying both. Claudette adored all her grandchildren and played a special game with them where she would say, "I love you, more" and the last person to say "more" was the winner. Claudette is survived by her husband Buck, son Jeff, his wife Sandie, grandchildren Chad, Tasha (Will) McLemore, Tianna, Jenna, great-grandchildren, Kamden and Hudson, aunts, uncles, many cousins and several friends. She was preceded in death by her father Howard Clair Rodgers, mother Laurel Beatrice Vertrees, sister Barbara Lee Rogers and her son Joseph Lane Langdon. A heartfelt thank you to Hospice of the Northwest for their kind compassionate care of Claudette and support to her family during her final days.
