CLARA IVIS

(LOPEZ) SWEETING

08/12/1960 - 10/18/2012

Clara was the daughter of the late Mercedes (Cordero) Lopez. A wonderful soul passed from our lives on Thursday, Oct. 18, 2012, in Tampa.

Clara lost a long battle with cancer, but always fought the battle with poise, good nature and laughter. To meet Clara was to love her.

She is survived by her sister, Maura Anuez; nieces, Josephine Baranda and family, Maura Mercedes Mena and family; and one nephew, Sergio (Lolo) Mena and family, all of Miami; three aunts, Guillermina Cordero and Caridad Cordero of Key West, and Cira Esther Cordero of Cuba; as well as many cousins and good friends that will always remember Clara.

A Mass for Clara will be given at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, 2012, at The Basilica of St. Mary Star of the Sea Church. After the Mass there will be a small gathering in her memory at the White Street Pier, where we will spread her ashes, according to her wishes.
