FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS
Lola Ester Del Mar de Claro was born and raised in San Luis, Batangas, Philippines. Out of the nine children in her family, she was eldest child of Sabino and Elisa Del Mar. She is married to Eutiquiano de Claro, an attorney who then became a Provincial Auditor. Lola Ester was an elementary school teacher at the San Luis Central School, where she moved on to become the school’s Guidance Coordinator. Her beloved hobbies were singing, playing the piano, reciting poems, and dancing with the Dance Instructor (DI). In 1995, she traveled to the United States and then became a citizen in 2001. She was far from her other children, grandchildren, and family from San Luis, but she found a home in the US with her daughter, Marilin. Even after she became a US citizen, she would travel back and forth from the US to Canada to see her family.
Lola was a caring mother and grandmother to her children and grandchildren. She inspired Alyssa’s love for music. Even when she became forgetful, she would never forget her musical skills on the piano, her favorite songs to sing, and her amazing moves on the dancefloor. Thank you, Lola/Nanay Ester for your music, and may we have another dance when we meet again.
