Clara Elaine Felmet Bonvillian

Clara Felmet Bonvillian, 67, of League City, Texas, went to her Lord and Savior peacefully with her husband and children by her side on February 8, 2024, in Nassau Bay, Texas.

Born Clara Elaine Felmet in Beaumont Texas to John Battle Felmet Jr. and Leota Bousquet Felmet on March 15, 1956, her childhood years were spent in the Houston area and then in Baton Rouge where she attended Broadmoor High School graduating in 1974. She also attended LSU and Southeastern Louisiana University where she met Tim Bonvillian. They were married in 1978 in Baton Rouge Louisiana and began a beautiful life together of 46 years. Clara devoted her life to her family and her children.  Early on, there were multiple moves and sacrifices that she made to make sure she supported Tim as he embarked on his career and made sure the children had everything they needed.  She looked forward to many weekend sports with her kids, depending on the season, and was leading the crowd in cheering them on.  Managing four children was not an easy task but she made it look flawless and there never was any deviation from her dedication to their lives. In the later years, her grandkids gave her happiness and brought much joy to her life.  She enjoyed the visits, texts, phone calls and facetime calls and you can see her spirit’s lift during those events.   Clara had many interests such as art, sports, music, watching wrestling, but most importantly she was a rabid LSU football fan where she spent many Saturdays watching her Tigers.

Clara is preceded in death by her parents, John Battle Felmet Jr.and Leota Bousquet Felmet, Paternal Grandparents John Battle Felmet Sr and Clara B Felmet, Maternal Grandparents Roland Bousquet and Clara Clark Bousquet.

She is survived by her husband Tim, son Troy and wife Sara Bonvillian, son Todd and wife Jaime Bonvillian, Kyle and wife Brandi Bonvillian, daughter Kati Bonvillian and seven grandchildren, Mitchell, Ella, Brady, Beaux, Sadie, Belle, Grayson, sister Pam Cooper and brother Roland Felmet

Additionally, the family wants to thank those who cared for her at Houston Methodist Cancer Center in Nassau Bay, Texas with gentle hands and compassion as well as the ICU doctors, nurses, and support staff at Houston Methodist Hospital for their compassionate care and support.
