Obituary

Clara Ferrari was born in the town of Bertorella Italy on January 28, 1926. In 1948, she married Valentino Del Maestro and after her son Fausto was born, they emigrated to America. There, they lived in Astoria, New York for most of their lives. During that time, they made several trips to Italy to visit family. Once her children were old enough, Clara went to work in Manhattan as a seamstress. She worked as a sample maker for a number of New York fashion designers. She was very talented and when her daughter, Wilma, got married, she made her wedding gown along with all of the bridesmaids’ gowns. Clara also made her own mother-of the bride dress.

In the 1980’s, Valentino and Clara purchased a home and moved to Sound Beach, Long Island. Valentino passed away from heart disease in October 1987. Clara continued to work using her talents as a seamstress by teaching sewing and crafts at the local senior center. She retired at the age of 86, when she moved to Ormond Beach Florida to be near her daughter and son-in-law. Clara made many friends in Ormond Beach and loved going to the Silver Sneakers classes at Golds Gym. At the age of 93, she decided to move to Ormond in the Pines Independent Living as the day-to-day chores of living alone we’re getting more difficult to manage. After a fall where she broke 4 ribs, she moved to the Assisted Living section of Ormond in the Pines.

Clara is remembered as a truly caring and selfless mother, grandmother, and friend, always ready to help those in need and never wanting to be a burden to anyone. She had a great sense of humor and loved to laugh.

Clara is survived by her son, Fausto and his wife Jayne and their 3 children, Jenny, TJ, and Amanda, her daughter Wilma and her husband Sal and their 2 children, Allyson and Donna.

    To our beautiful our Mama Clara who will be sorely missed. Thank you for your example of silent strength and determination to do what’s right and endure showing love no matter what you were going through.
    Thank you for the gift of our beautiful family who’s roots you laid down and that keep growing. I thank you for your Son, My dear Love Fausto, who if not for your molding and guidance would not be the man I have grown up with and am fortunate to be growing old with. You did an amazing job. We will miss you. We will always remember you and all you were to each one of us, we will remember your beautiful sweet smile and your gracious laugh every time we would walk in the door to visit or call you on the Phone.. this will keep us smiling as we recount each Precious moment. Thanks for your love and incredible example, We love you Mom and will miss you. Xoxoxo ❤️
