She was known throughout her neighborhood as “la piccola ribela”- the little rebel. As a curly-haired child, she knew how to push her way through food lines to get her family of six the necessities. During her late teenage years, she corresponded through letters with her future husband, Felix, who was living in America. She married her husband, who she only knew through these letters, at the age of 19, as the marriage was prearranged. She settled in the United States with her husband in 1955. The couple was married for almost 50 years and had three boys whom she cherished dearly. She was predeceased by her dear husband in 2003. She was also “Nonni” to her three loving grandchildren. Clara loved spending her time with her family. She enjoyed sharing her cooking with her children and grandchildren, often and unexpectedly changing the ingredients thus always keeping her family on their toes. Another treasured pastime of Clara’s was going to the casino to play the slot machines and attending Monday night Bingo at Saint Anthony’s. She spent the last few years of her life battling Multiple Myeloma, visiting Mass General Hospital weekly to meet with her amazing oncology team and was greeted by name by every member of the staff with a warm smile. Even as her disease progressed, her will and stubbornness to persevere continued. Clara would occasionally make cannolis or Italian cookies to bring along to share with her friends at Mass General. She will be missed greatly by her family, friends and all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
