To often life escapes us. We are born with no say in the matter and then one day, the end reaches us. It truly is what is in between that matters in history. Here we look at the life of Bonita Mouhart. She was born in 1934 during a depression. She lived through WW2. She learned the value of a dollar through sacrifice. She saw different automobiles, televisions come to everyone's homes, and men go to the moon. She saw phones come and then turn into what we have today. Not to mention all the progress in the medical field. She has seen countless friends and family pass through this life to go to the next. She had a great faith in God the Creator. She loved her fellow man (even when they mistreated her). Her last years she had the joy of sharing her one and only son's final years with him. After he passed, she looked forward to going to live with him for eternity. She didn't complain much and lived a very simple life. But the most remarkable accomplishment in her life was from this one woman came forth 26 people to date. She was very interested in her large family. Each new addition made her happy. She will be missed but never forgotten! The love and life lessons will be passed down from generation to generation.

She is survived by her grandchildren, Robin Carter and husband Gary, David Kevin Ritter, Shanin Ritter and Jolie Ritter; 15 great-grandchildren; 4 great-great grandchildren; and sister, Joy Veillon Murphy.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Houston and Emily Veillon; and son, David Houston Ritter.

The family has entrusted Ardoin's Funeral Home of Mamou with arrangements. (717 Sixth St. Mamou, LA 70554)
