‘Grace, dignity and strength’: Pittsburghers mourn death of Vera Clemente, widow of Pirates legend

Vera Clemente, the Pirates’ matriarch and Roberto’s widow, enjoyed what was surely an emotional and long-awaited reunion with her husband on Saturday.

After she had been in “delicate health” since Nov. 1, Vera Clemente died of unknown causes in her native Puerto Rico, surrounded by family and friends. She was 81.

The loss was difficult to take for many Pirates fans, especially those who had idolized Roberto and, as a result, had gotten to know his wife; turns out empathy and philanthropy were not ideals only the baseball-playing half of the marriage carried.

Vera Clemente is survived by three sons: Roberto Clemente Jr., Luis Roberto Clemente and Roberto Enrique Clemente.
