Isabel and Sr. Clare

Isabel Ibáñez:  She was a strong woman. Her words had strength. She had wisdom to shut your mouth and look down on you, and yet she didn't do that. I was a imperturbable teenager with a similar ability to speak out and with a clarity of ideas, and I saw that she had the same ability but used it differently.

Sr. Ana Maria

 Sr. Ana Maria Cabezuelo, SHM:  I was always impressed by Sr. Clare's docility and obedience. I could ask her anything and she never made any objection, sour face, complaint or reluctance.

Sr. Ana Maria Lapeña, Spain:  Everyone remembers Sr. Clare’s cheerfulness, her gifts as a “people person,” her sense of humor, her imagination… However, in addition to all that, she had a number of virtues that you could only admire in her by living with her on a daily basis.

Sr. Annemarie Naiman, USA:  Even though she felt awful, she was able to forget about herself to talk to the people.

Sr. Beatriz

Sr. Beatriz Liaño, SHM:  I can still see the scene: Sr. Clare laying on the back seat with her eyes closed while the taxi started up. When I saw her again after a few hours at dinner, she was serving the girls and telling jokes and spreading joy.
