Oct. 13, 1920 - Jan. 29, 2011
Clara Valadez of Fillmore of “Clarita” as she was fondly called by those who loved her, passed away peacefully at the age of 90, surrounded by her family at Fillmore Convalescent Hospital on Saturday, January 29, 2011.
Clara was a long time resident of Fillmore and a parishioner of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church. She was a beloved sister and aunt to many nieces and nephews. Our tia Clara will always be remembered as a woman who was devoted to her family and who was always of service to others. She enjoyed telling amusing stories, and made all of us laugh. Tia Clara’s hands were always busy and she would knit sweaters and make many delicious dishes for family lunches and dinners. Everyone’s Favorite was her home-made flour tortillas. Clarita’s generous nature and the laughter and love she brought to her family will not be forgotten.
She is survived by her sister, Luz Quezada, her niece, Lucy, nephews-Felipe and Ricardo, their spouse and children. As a great-aunt, she leaves behind many nieces and nephews.
On behalf of our beloved, Tia Clara, the family would like to extend their thanks and appreciation to the staff of Fillmore Convalescent Center, especially to their aides, Sara, Michelle, Robin, Melissa for tending to her needs with love and compassion throughout her stay.
The rosary is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. on Monday, February 07, 2011 at St. Francis Assisi Church in Fillmore, followed by the funeral mass. The internment will be on Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. at Bardsdale cemetery.
