Claudette Helene West

Claudette Helene (Cason) West, 82, passed peacefully in her home of 50+ years in Coronado on June 20, 2019.

She was born on Jan. 30, 1937 at NAS Patuxent River, D.C. to Helen and Claude Cason and was known to her Grandmother Mae as Sue. She was born and raised in a Navy family, stationed in Coronado in 1953 and graduated a proud Islander Cheerleader with the Coronado High School class of 1955.

She married Navy pilot Gerald R. Roberts in 1960 and had two children Helene and Dale Roberts. Widowed in 1965, Claudette and the children returned to Coronado where both children also graduated from Coronado High School.

In her adult life, Claudette was an avid sports fan, tennis player, bowler, golfer and active member of the Bridge and Bay Garden Club. She enjoyed traveling, spending time with family, lunching with friends, taking classes at the Coronado Senior Center and loved supporting the arts at Coronado High School.

Claudette is survived by her two children Helene and Dale (Mary); and four grandchildren, Kelly, Jessica, Ellese and Cason.

She will be truly missed by her family, friends and the Coronado community.
