In great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Clara Louise Gutierrez. Clara was born January 30, 1931, and gained her angel wings on May 12, 2024, surrounded by her loving family at her side.

Clara was a very loving and caring person with an awesome smile and a very warm heart. She cared for everyone that walked into her home. Clara was born in Agua Ramon, Colorado and went to school in Del Norte, Colorado. There she met the love of her life and father of her children, Oscar Gutierrez.
