Claudette Bechtel

October 6, 1946 — February 20, 2021

Claudette Bechtel of Waukesha joined her Lord and Savior in Heaven on Saturday, February 20, 2021 at the age of 74. She was born in Chicago, IL on October 6, 1946 the daughter of Mario G. and Guadalupe Anastasia (Leon) Bustos. Claudette worked at various places as an LPN but spent most of her life being a fantastic homemaker. She was an excellent seamstress and made over 2,000 facemasks during the pandemic. Claudette had a servants’ heart and her passion in life was serving others and putting others before herself. She was an active member of Bridge Church and found great joy in serving other communities through volunteer work on mission trips to Mexico, Ecuador, Spain, and Jamaica. Through Bridge Church she also enjoyed supporting the Seaglass Ministries, White Stone Warriors and Foundations for His Ministry. Claudette’s greatest love was her family, and she will always be remembered as a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.

She will be sadly missed by her husband of 48 years, Allen of Waukesha, their sons, Mark (Sandra) Bechtel of Mukwonago and Christopher (Hannah) Bechtel of South Jordan, Utah and her cherished grandchildren, Ava Grace, Mikelle Marie, Stella Gail, Beau Ramser, Elizabeth Hope and Madilyn Faith. She is further survived by her brother Mario (Shirley) Bustos, sisters, Marina (Brad) Freiheit and Jeannie (Rich) Miller along with nieces, nephews, other relatives, and many friends. She was preceded in death by her parents and sister Carol.
