OBITUARY:

Kiara Leticia Dume passed away on Saturday, June 19th, at Mass General Hospital after a tragic bicycle accident on Friday evening. The beloved daughter of Pascual and Maricel Sanchez of Woburn, Kiara had just turned seven in May.

She started her schooling at St. Charles Kindergarten and this past year attended the Malcolm White School in Woburn.

Despite her young age, Kiara embraced every day with excitement and enthusiasm. She loved to dress up, complete with make-up, polished fingernails, high heels and fancy dresses and admired her “grown up??? look in the mirror. She knew all the popular music and wasn’t shy about singing and dancing, a true “Diva???.

Her interests went far beyond dressing up as she loved nature, animals and playing outside. All of this took a lot of energy which she never seemed to run out of, and generated a hearty appetite which she certainly had.

Kiara greatest love was her family, her parents, her brother Stefan, her relatives and friends. She liked the idea of being related to everyone and would often state, “that’s my cousin???. Saturdays were always particularly special for Kiara because it meant time with her family.

To say that she embraced life fully is an understatement. Although she possessed the innocence of a child, she somehow had the wisdom to find love and joy in everyone she met and every activity she participated in.

Kiara was predecased by her paternal grandparents, Agripino and Leticia (Pimental) Dume.

She is survived by her parents, Pascual Dume and Maricel Sanchez, her brother Stefan, her maternal grandparents, Hilario and Maria Esther Sanchez of Puerto Rico, her Godparents, Nancy and Manuel Ramos of Woburn, and many uncles, aunt, cousins and friends.

Relatives and friends are invited to call on Tuesday, June 22nd from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn. A Mass of the Angels will be celebrated in St. Charles Church, 280 Main Street, Woburn on Wednesday, June 23rd at 9.

Interment will take place in Woodbrook Cemetery, Woburn.

Donations may be made in Kiara’s memory to Soar, P.O. Box 388, Balsam, North Carolina, 28707.

  5. I was Kiara’s kindergarten teacher at the White School. I felt as if our class was one big happy family. She loved to play in the house area and dress up in the fancy clothes. Kiara often talked about her brother and the things he would let her borrow. She cherished her time with her parents and had fun stories to tell about them. She has left a special place in my heart and will be missed.

  6. Kiara….

    I remember the first time I met her at Cub Scouts when Stefan beat Alex in the boat race. She was running around like she always seemed to do and somehow landed right on top of me. After that day, I always looked forward to lovingly teasing her whether we were at Cub Scouts, the soccer field, or at baseball. A beautiful girl full of spunk with a firecracker personality.

    You will be missed beautiful Kiara ….

  7. I didn’t know the family or Kiara. I heard about the tragedy on the news.But my heart goes out to all of you. No parent should ever have to bury a child. A Mass of the Angels will be celebrated, because Kiara is indeed now an angel with God. God bless her, and God bless her family.

  8. There are no words to describe the sadness I feel in hearing the news of Kiara’s untimely death. Kiara brought so much happiness to so many people, including all of us at KinderCare. Her bright smile and sparkling eyes, will be missed more than any words could ever say. My heart goes out to Stefan, Marty and Pasquale. May the wonderful memories you have comfort you as my memories will. Stephanie Levine

    We are all so sadden with the loss of Kiara. She was a bright, beautiful child. She was always so cheerful and definitly full of life. Morgan and the other children, parents and staff are feeling a empty place in school. Please know that your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

  10. Kiara,
    I will miss so many things about you. Your raspy voice asking me if you can go here and there with me, your warm hugs, and those big brown eyes staring back at me while we played “you’re so beautiful”. I’ll miss you more than words could ever express. But I am grateful for every moment we shared together and will only regret not having more of those moments. I know that you are the sassiest angel in heaven looking down on all of us. I know that you are happy and at peace because you are with God. I only want you to know how much I love you “chica” and how much you will be missed.
