Thelma Chevalier Mouton

April 13, 1928 – February 25, 2023

Thelma Chevalier Mouton, affectionately known as Grandmother, was surrounded by her family when she died February 25, 2023 at the age of ninety-four.  

Thelma was born in Arnaudville, Louisiana and was the oldest of nine children.   She was preceded in death by her parents, Nathan and Stephanie Chevalier, her siblings Nathan Chevalier,  Doris Thompson, Vivian Bosley, Roland Chevalier and Ezebe Chevalier.

Thelma was baptized at St. Rose of Lima Church, educated in New Orleans at St Monica’s Catholic School and graduated from Booker T. Washington High School in New Orleans.   After high school she moved to Houston and married Clarence Mouton. To this union came four children.

Thelma was a woman of honor and integrity, a devoted Christian who never missed Sunday Mass, who loved and cherished her family.  She was blessed with an abundance of wisdom that she used all of her life to help and encourage others.  She had very strong work ethics as a Supervisor at Standard Bag Company, as Project Manager of Operatons for One Source Services at Pennzoil Place, and at her flower shops:  Mouton’s Florist & Atchison Flowers.  She sold her crocheted crafts, made hats, was a seamstress, as well a salesperson for many years for various home products.

Thelma is survived by her children Shirley Sellers (John), Cynthia Barrs (Ronald), Deborah Gabriel (Walter), and Nathan Mouton (Gloria).  She also leaves her siblings to cherish her memory Irma Robicheaux, Lillian Rosignon, JoAnna Chevalier and sisters-in-law Isabella Chevalier & Rose Chevalier.  She adored her grandchildren Kristin, Nathaniel (Lady), Jason (Megan), Walter, Jr. (Christine), Mark, Johnathan, Elizabeth (Joseph), Christopher(Lawren), Nicholas(Alexis), & Angelina; numerous great grandchildren; and a great-great grandchild.

Thelma will be remembered for her determination, generous character, her feisty spirit, humorous attitude, her creativeness with flowers and extremely hardworking fortitude especially in her flower shops which she dearly loved.  She emphasized education until all four of her children graduated from college.

I will miss my sister Thelma, remembering her as humorous, wise, and dedicated to anything she set forth to do ! I have visions of her always running around in the house rushing to get where she needed to be on time. I called her Edith Bunker, running around in a bit of a frenzy forcing You to clear her path! While laughing at herself!
