Claudia was born July 25, 1945 in Falls City, NE where she grew up. She married Clifford “Ike” Mackey. After their divorce she lived in Gardner and Kansas City, Kansas. Claudia married Oliver “Conrad” Gebhart on Dec. 23, 1986 in Hiawatha, KS. After her marriage to Conrad they lived in Oregon, MO. They moved to Olathe in 2009 to be near family. She worked as a daycare director and enjoyed volunteering. Claudia enjoyed watching the KC Chiefs and Royals and baking hot rolls, especially cinnamon rolls. Spending time with family was a special pass time--grandkids called her “Grandma Truck” because she always drove a truck when they were little. She will be dearly missed by family and friends.
