Obituary for Diana M. Claverie

On Sunday, March 15, 2020, Diana M. Claverie, passed away peacefully into the arms of her Savior.

Diana's story began 57 years and 2 days before, when she was welcomed into this world with great joy by her mother, Teresita M. Claverie and father, Raul Diaz.

To her family, she was "Sisi" from the time she was just a little girl. She was nicknamed after the Empress Sisi, who they said was just as elegant and sweet.

It was in Argentina, at her great-grandmother's ranch, that Diana grew to love nature and all of its creatures.

Diana was about 5 years old when the family moved to Texas. And it was in Austin, that Diana attended high school and started college. She was so smart. School was a breeze for her. She only had to read that thick-as-a-brick microbiology book once to get an A on the exam. She graduated with honors, obtaining a B.A. in Health Sciences, and worked in the medical field for over 15 years.

She was also a very good artist. She had a passion for art, and the talent to draw and paint. Beautiful paintings of tropical beaches and ocean scenes decorated the walls of her house. She loved the ocean, and would go to the beaches in Florida whenever she had a chance. And of course, she would never miss the opportunity to visit friends in the area.

Diana was known for her kindness and compassion. She was known to help out a friend even when she did not feel well. She also worked with rescue organizations, picking up strays and abandoned pets. And anyone that knew Diana, knew how much she loved all the kitties she had throughout the years: Hemini, Georgie, Jingles, Tabby, Minina, Leo Leo, and others.

For the last ten years, Diana lived in Charlotte, N.C., having also lived in Florida for a few years. The friends she met along the way were from all walks of life. It did not matter to her what you had; she only considered the person you were. She was always happy to have a new friend.

Yet Diana never forgot Argentina nor her extended family of a dozen or so aunts and uncles, and twice as many cousins. She went back to visit whenever possible. Family was important to her. This past December Diana succeeded in reuniting the majority of the family for a beautiful Christmas and New Year's get-together. We are so glad you did, Sisi.

Loved ones who will miss her and someday follow her are her mother, Teresita Claverie; sister, Greta A. Claverie; brother, Raul G. Diaz; brother, Sergio M. Diaz and wife Nancy; nephews, Felipe and Facundo; aunts, uncles, and cousins, and friends.

But do not be sad... Diana's story continues, and we will all see Diana, "Sisi", again.

Private family services will be held. Diana's ashes will then go back home to Texas, with her dear mother and sister.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Diana's name to the non-profits: "Catering to Cats and Dogs" (c2cnd.org) in Charlotte, N.C., or "Suzie's Zoo" (givinggrid.com/suzieszoosanctuary)
in Saint Stephen, S.C., or a similar charity. This would certainly have made Diana smile.

Diana's sister invites you to listen to the song: "Arms Of The Savior" by Elizabeth South.
