Camilla Duplantis

Camilla Faye Duplantis, 87, of Santa Fe, Texas passed away peacefully on Saturday, August 20, 2016 in the arms of her husband Lyman Duplantis.

Cam was a sweet, loving and witty woman who enjoyed spending time creating beautiful flower and vegetable gardens. She was known for canning some of the best dill pickles around, and you could find her every summer lining up mason jars in her kitchen that always smelled like home. Cam loved her children, grandchildren, her brothers and sisters, and mostly her husband of 50 years, Lyman.

Cam was a go-to person when someone was sick or dying and could always be counted on to lend a helping hand. She raised and or guided 6 kids and drew valuable and unforgettable ink watches and jewelry on a slew of grandkids.

Cam is preceded in death by her parents, Gertrude and Fred Bass: sister, Nellie Medford and stepdaughter, Kristi Sulak.

She leaves behind her children: Linda Fonville, Jim Fonville, wife, Brenda, Kim Fonville, wife, Barbara, Traci Fonville; stepdaughter, Kandi Duplantis, partner, Tracy McCutchin; grandchildren: Shelly Matthews, husband, Greg, Adrienne Fonville, J.J., Michael, Elizabeth and Kimberly Fonville; great grandchildren: Brandon Mann, Dalton Jones, wife, Ashley, Clayton and Brynn Traylor, and great great grandson Jaxon Jones.

  2. I remember visiting Cam and Lyman in summer 1986. That’s what I wanted for my graduation present. She was so sweet and took me around to visit family I had never met. It was such a fun time and she was fun and beautiful! I’ll never forget her and aunt Diana in the kitchen making a curious brownie called Better than sex brownies! hahaha Well I didn’t know if it was or not but they sure enjoyed them! lol my aunts were so fun to hang with during my trip…

    Love you Aunt Camilla, so glad I got to meet you and hang with you for my grad gift!!!! See you someday again with our Heavenly Father…

    Love Christina (daughter of Jackie Wayne Bass Cam’s brother)
