A woman of many talents, Clara spent many of early years helping to raise her younger siblings and many nieces and nephews. After marrying her husband Willie, they lived together, with their children, on the Norias Division of the King Ranch, where they both worked for many years. After retirement, they moved to Clara’s family land in Lasara, TX where she worked for Lasara I.S.D for several years. After the death of her husband in 1998, she lived out the rest of her life watching over her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, hosting countless family gatherings, and waiting to be reunited with her husband. She was a woman of quick wit, irrefutable resolve, and unquestionable love. Clara was a lifelong member of Bethel United Methodist Church in Raymondville, TX and held her Christian faith very near to heart.
