Clarissa was born July 27, 1972, to Lupe and Josie Castro Quintanilla in Brownfield, TX. She married Adam Acebedo July 12, 2008 in Brownfield, TX.
Clarissa lived her life for her children, from the moment she welcomed her first born child she would assume her life’s calling. She valued family and friends more than the finer things in life, never one to meet a stranger. She was truly a genuine person, willing to go above and beyond for all those who had the good fortune to cross her path.
Her laughter was loud and contagious, and her hugs were bigger than she was. She was the kind of person you could sit and talk with for hours on end, and still want more - more of her insight, more of her stories, more of her laughter, more of her compassion. Time spent with Clarissa was time filled with love. She wanted nothing more than for the people she cared for to be happy.
Although you live in heaven now, you will live in our hearts forever. We love and miss you.
