ChileSCDA issued the following message:

Con mucho sentimiento quisiéramos compartir la triste noticia del fallecimiento de la Cra Carmen, acaecido el día 25 de Junio en la ciudad de Valdivia. Carmen vivió parte de su exilio en Liverpool junto con su Cro Alan Rodríguez y su hijo José Miguel. Luego retorna a Chile después del ingreso clandestino de su Cro a nuestro país. Un par de años más tarde y debido al cerco de la represión, vuelve a GB y comparte con nosotros en Sheffield el resto de su exilio hasta principios de 1990, cuando retorna definitivamente a Chile.

Cra Carmen, te recordamos y saludamos tu participación en la resistencia a la dictadura y tu compromiso militante con el movimiento feminista. En nuestro pensamiento también está el Cro Alan Rodríguez, su hijo José Miguel, Alan Ford, con quien compartió su nueva vida en Chile, sus hermanos y familia; como también en sus camaradas y amigas/os.

Sus restos descansan en Valdivia, la ciudad que la vio nacer. Carmen, te Saluda el exilio de Sheffield y todas tus amigas de acá y GB.
