On November 8th, 2017, Dona Carmen, La Maestra and our beloved Oma, ascended to heaven to join God?s holy angels. Words will never fully express the loss we feel in her passing. She was a woman of timeless elegance, beauty, perseverance, and most of all love and kindness. She evoked the sophistication and regalness of queens from ages past and maintained a fearlessness that was nothing short of revolutionary.
Throughout her life she learned five languages and taught countless students. She was truly a citizen on the world. She traveled constantly and was always striving to learn of other cultures.
She was a beloved mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, friend, and wife.
We, her family and friends, grieve the loss of her warm embrace and yet, we celebrate the extraordinary life she led and continue to feel her cherished presence throughout our lives.
Special Instructions/Comments: The Addison family and staff at Addison Funeral Home extend their condolences to Carmen's family and friends.
