In Loving Memory of Claire Estopin Swope
It is with heavy and broken hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Claire Estopin Swope, a beloved and treasured wife, daughter, sister, and friend. Claire's caring, compassionate, loving, and vibrant spirit passed peacefully from this life on August 15, 2023, while she was at home enjoying a simple conversation with her loving husband Ahmad Anthony Swope. She was 43 years old.
Claire was born on May 22, 1980, in Manila, Philippines, to Salvacion Medalla Estopin and Oscar Diorico Estopin. She grew up surrounded by the love of her parents, siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles, and close friends. She leaves behind a legacy of compassion, kindness, and joy that will forever resonate in the hearts of those who knew her.
Claire's journey through life was marked by her unwavering dedication to caring for her aging parents, a testament to her nurturing and selfless nature. Her path was forever changed when she met the love of her life, Ahmad Anthony Swope, in September 2014. After seven years of patient planning, Claire achieved her lifelong dream when she married Ahmad. Their union was a testament to love's enduring power and the realization of her cherished goals.
Claire's enthusiasm for life was contagious, as she found joy in life's simplest pleasures. Whether engaging in a heartfelt conversation, embarking on a new travel adventure, or making new acquaintances, Claire's genuine curiosity and kindness left an indelible mark on everyone she met.
Education played a significant role in Claire's life, and she graduated from Carlos P. Garcia High School in 1999. She pursued higher education with a focus on Business Administration at the University of Manila, a testament to her dedication to personal growth and intellectual pursuits.
Music and dance were sources of immense delight for Claire. She was known for her love of cooking and the way her voice soared during karaoke sessions, filling the room with warmth and joy. Her infectious optimism was exemplified by her habit of wishing everyone a blessed day, a small gesture that reflected her immense heart.
Claire's sister, Shirley, shared a humorous memory that captured Claire's playful spirit. During a vacation at Boracay Beach Resort, Claire's encounter with curious fish became an unforgettable tale. The sight of her fleeing from tiny fish playfully nibbling at her feet brought laughter and joy to those who witnessed her spirited escape.
Claire's Brother-in-law, Joel, recalled the first vivid memory he had of Claire, a horseback ride up the slopes of a volcano. His description painted a picture of Claire's gentle, warm, and easygoing spirit. Her ability to connect with people, whether in her homeland or as a part of her new American family, highlighted her welcoming nature.
Claire Estopin Swope's passing leaves a void that cannot be filled, but her legacy of love, kindness, and boundless joy will live on in the hearts of her beloved husband, Ahmad Anthony Swope, her parents, Salvacion Medalla Estopin and Oscar Diorico Estopin, her siblings Mylex Seran, Olive and Joel Suffridge, Shirley and Bud Fagg, Ronan Estopin, and Ervan Estopin, and in the cherished memories of her cousins, aunts, uncles, and close friends.
As we gather to honor Claire's life, let us remember the love and compassion she shared with us all. Claire's spirit lives on in the hearts of all who knew her, and her legacy will continue to inspire acts of love and kindness for generations to come. In her memory, let us strive to embrace life's simple pleasures, spread joy wherever we go, and remember that even in the face of challenges, love can guide us through.
Rest in eternal peace, dear Claire. Your light will forever shine in our hearts.
