Claire grew up in the Philippines with her siblings - Mandy, Mennie, Cora, Norma, and Virgilio. In 1981, she migrated to the United States and wore different hats – loving wife, mother, realtor, banker, loan officer, and she can sell the Brooklyn Bridge. She is someone who never gives up. When one door closes, she’s onto the next opportunity.
Claire loved her husband Louie, her children, her friends, and anyone who comes her way. She will be missed tremendously.
Claire is no longer with us physically, but her legacy lives on through all of us.
