Our sweet loving, Clara del Carmen Muñoz Alfaro de Bondarenko, 83, of Charlotte, NC, departed to join her husband (Iwan C. Bondarenko 1924-1997), and to be with our Lord, suddenly on Wednesday, September 23, 2020 at her residence. She was born to Gumercindo del Carmen Muñoz Galaz and Maria Hortensia Alfaro Valenzuela in Santiago, Chile.
She was like a little girl. She trusted that her children, her grandchildren, her friends and family loved her. She had a pure heart. Always caring. Always good intentions. She was so passionate to do things out of love. She was never worried about what people thought, or how people would react, because she was like a child. She was unapologetically loving, and regardless of what anyone said to her, she would refuse to quit showing her love in any way she knew how.
We find comfort in knowing that Clara is finally free of her physical pain, in knowing that she died with people that she loved, with people that loved her, and we find the most comfort in knowing that she is in heaven. We are willing to bet that she has all the energy to run and jump now, to laugh and smile with our father, to play games, tell stories, meet new friends, see old ones, and we can’t wait to see her again.
Left to cherish her memory include; Daughter Svetlana Gallo & Son-in-law Peter J. Gallo, Daughter Sarita Bondarenko, Son Iwan J. Bondarenko, Grandsons Joseph M. Gallo & Michael A. Gallo & Granddaughter Lindsay F. Bondarenko.
