Claudia Rowles-Hinkle Obituary

Claudia Jo, 72, passed away on January 5, 2024.  She was born in Akron on January 25, 1951, to the late Robert and Marilyn Neumeyer.  She was a 1969 graduate of Coventry High School.


Jo married Rick, the love of her life, on May 2, 1970. If you wanted to find them on a weekend in the summer, you would need to check Salt Fork State Park, the Ohio River, or East Harbor State Park as it seemed like every weekend was spent on the boat. Rick took her on her first cruise to celebrate the turn of the century in the middle of the ocean. Ever since that first cruise Jo was hooked and has taken many cruises since. Rick and Jo were happily married until his passing in 2000, they were married for over 30 years.


Jo had a zest for life and was an avid traveler. She was always looking forward to her next adventure and cruise. She loved boating with family, playing cards with friends, and spending time with her sons and grandchildren. She was a huge fan of baseball and would enjoy many Guardians and Rubber Duck games. She was incredibly witty; she had to be, raising three boys.

Jo fought a courageous battle with a series of health issues that were just too much for her to endure.


Besides her parents, Jo was preceded in death by her husbands, Richard Rowles and Darrell Hinkle.  She is survived by her loving sons, Kevin (Mandi), Keith (Lynette), and Kyle (Nicole) Rowles; grandchildren, Robyn, Graisyn, Griffyn, Ashley, and Ethan; 2 great-grandchildren; brother, Mike (Jan) Neumeyer; sister, Sharon (Stan) Hoffman; as well as many other loving family and friends.
