Claude is preceded in death by his parents, Margaret and Harry Miner; sisters, Evelyn Gross, Maude Bunting, Patsy Artman; brothers, Carl Miner and Charles Miner, and in-laws, Robert and Marjorie Barnett of Equality, Illinois. The family would like to express gratitude to Dr. Jessica Cook and Corissa Price of Joyner Therapy, Susan Schreifels of Egyptian Heath Department, and niece, Whitney McKenzie, for their devoted care and assistance.

Marthan, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I understand the grief and hurt you are going thru. I lost my husband 20 years ago this Sunday the 2nd.
May God bring you and your family peace and comfort.

Claude was a special friend. My mother grew up with the Miner kids. They were like family to her. Claude always had a smile. Rick worked in the 70s with Claude. Great guy! Sending our heartfelt sympathy 💕

Claude was always a good friend to our mother, Margery Phillips (and our dad, Pete). In addition to helping her choose many furniture things through the years later when she had to move from her home he helped her find homes for those same furniture items and allowed the use of the furniture truck. Most of all though were the many kindnesses he and Martha provided to their church friends. We treasure the memory of Jason helping with her funeral service.

I am so sorry to read of Claude’s passing. I cannot think of memories of growing up in Omaha when Claude and Marthan not our neighbors. I know Mom cherished visits with both and treated their kids like they were her own. Prayers for the family and close friends. Claude will be missed by the Graves family.

I met Claude and his family when his Mother was a patient at Carmi Hospital. He was one of the kindest, most considerate, men I have ever known. My condolences to the family. I can only imagine how happy he must be to have completed his journey.
