Clara Davila Montez “Mimi”, 83 went to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, June 23, 2018. She was surrounded by her loving family. She was born in San Leon, Texas, on October 31, 1934 to the proud parents of Rev. Manuel J. and Antonia Davila. She attended Texas City Schools, was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and loved her family immensely. She also survived the 1947 Texas City Disaster, a member of the Eastern Star Texas City Chapter #626, a devoted Christian, involved in Royal Rangers and the Missionettes during her time at her Church. She was faithful, loyal, kind, giving, and a loving soul to many.
She is preceded in death by Rev. Manuel J and Antonia Davila (parents), four brothers; daughter, Maria Hann; two granddaughters, Monika and Stephanie, and son, Peter. She is survived by her loving husband of 65 years, Juan Montez; her children, Tina Emert and husband Darrin Emert, Robert (Tony) Montez and wife Shelia and Michael Montez; three sisters, seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren and numerous extended family.

“Mimi” was one of a kind. She had her door open always to everyone in her life. She was never too tired to help anyone and always took time for anyone who walked through her door for coffee or food! She was not only devoted to her family, but to all those she knew. She loved ALL her children, especially her own, and her entire family. She was a very courageous woman who lived a full, exciting, humble, spiritual and impressive life. She touched many lives in this world, more than most people and never met a stranger. She is now reunited with her family in heaven, especially her children and grandchildren and is a guardian angel to all those left behind with her memory. She is now at peace and no longer in pain and will forever be in our hearts. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to First Church of God.
A special thank you to her loving sister, Esther Hobi, Denson Home Health, Davita Dialysis, Dr. Alfredo Nodarse, Dr. Hung Le, Amy Gurnea-Davenport, Helen Mauberger-Gonzales, and to all that took the time to visit, bring food, and called to remember our loving mother.
Juan,Tina, Tony and Mike,
I am very saddened to hear of Mrs. Montez passing away. We have been long time friends, one that borders on family ties. We go back a very long way. Back to the 4th Ave. South days. A lot of mine and Tommy's childhood memories come from that era and includes all of you. My condolences and heart felt sympathy go out to you. She was a wonderful person and will be missed by all who knew her. May she rest in peace and God watch over you in this time of sadness.

Mimi was the epitome of what a loving woman, mother and grandmother should be. My heart and prayers are with her family and all those whom she made feel like family. The world may seem a bit dimmer today, but heaven is shining much brighter now that her beautiful soul is there.
