Obituary: Clara Charlotte Koepsel

DIED Clara Charlotte Koepsel, born August 26, 1931, to George and Viola Lewis in Santa Fe, New Mexico, passed away peacefully on June 24, 2008, in Katy, Texas. A Houston resident for nearly 30 years, Clair, as friends called her, was a highly visible and active presence in Houston’s gay community, specifically due to her association with AIDS Foundation Houston, Hollyfield Foundation, and numerous other organizations. She leaves a legacy of countless friends though her volunteerism. Clair is survived by daughters Monika Menczer and Michelle Luna, and by four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. A rosary and memorial service was held June 30 in the Chapel of Heights Funeral Home. A celebration of life honoring her memory was later held at the Heights-area home of Neil Sackheim.
