Claudia Allison Grant Clayton, age 48, passed away on Thursday, May 30, 2019. Born on October 22, 1970 in Brooklyn, New York. She was the daughter of John Emanuel Grant and Vesey Grant. Claudia was the wife of James Daniel Clayton, Jr.
Claudia was known for her love and her adoration of her family. Family was always her priority, and she worked endlessly to build a family that was rooted in love and strength. From an early age, Claudia showed both interest and talent in the arts. She was a natural-born singer and dancer and went to school in New York to study both professionally. She was happiest when there was a song in her heart, which was all the time. Her gifts were endless, but she made a career out of her gift for enriching young children. She was always teaching, and caring. Parents were excited to entrust their children in her care because they knew it was her purpose.
