Carmen (Beby) Laurent Salas Marchetti, a long-time resident of Houston, TX was called home by our Heavenly Father on Thursday, January 28, 2021.
Carmen was born June 4th 1962 in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. Opportunity for a better life beckoned and she moved to Florida in 1989. A few years later, Carmen moved to Houston. She graduated from Colegio Madre Vicenta Uboldi in 1977 and earned her Master’s Degree in Business from University of Houston in the 1990s.
Carmen spent over 30 years in the Commercial Janitorial Cleaning industry working for Compaq, ABS, Conoco, KBR and Halliburton. She also ran a successful company of her own called CMW Cleaning Services which she named after her children.
She was a devoted mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, friend, and mentor. Carmen’s true pride and joy were her beloved grandchildren. She enjoyed spending as much time with them in person or by FaceTime with those in Bolivia.
Carmen always put others before herself. She was loved immensely by everyone who knew her and projected warmth, joy, and kindness to all. She was a devoted Christian with a deep faith in God.
Carmen loved to laugh, dance, listen to music, and travel. Her favorite trips were those by the ocean. She headed to the water every chance she could. Carmen was an advocate for rescuing cats. She was the proud owner and momma to Winchester, Shotgun, Charlie, Linda, and Lucky.
Carmen is survived by her daughter Michelle Laurent Ramsey and two sons Walter Pablo Landivar Salas, Cesar Raul Monasterio Salas; brothers Victor (Kin) Joaquin Salas Marchetti, Marcelo Alberto Salas Marchetti, Antonio (Antuco) Salas Marchetti, and sister Rita (Gringa) Elizabeth Salas Marchetti.
