Obituary

Clara Thayvodia Lewis was born on March 20, 1938, to the late Jim Rhinehart and the late Thedoshia Rhinehart in Spartanburg County. She was educated in the Spartanburg County school system and attended Benjamin E. Mayes High School. Clara was a member of the Drayton Church of Christ.  Clara thoroughly enjoyed attending church, reading her Bible, and cooking; she was known for her potatoes and onions with biscuits. She also loved gospel music and her favorite artist was Lee Williams. “Can’t Run Can’t Hide" was her favorite song. Clara's lovable spirit, kind heart, and generous presence was the most noted attribute of her life.


She leaves to cherish fond and loving memories to her daughters, Clarise (Gabe) Anderson of Mooresville, NC, Maudine (Frankie) Clemons of Spartanburg, SC, Betty Ann Lewis of Spartanburg, SC, Hattie (Kelvin) Gossett of Spartanburg, SC, Sharon Pilgrim of Duncan, SC and Evelyn Lewis of Spartanburg, SC; sons, Eddie (Trina) Lewis and Tederick Lewis both of Spartanburg, SC; twenty-one grandchildren; a host of great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and friends.


 Clara was preceded in death by her husband, Freddie Lewis; son, Frankie Lewis; granddaughter, Clarisa Harris; great-granddaughter,  Shaqunta Lewis, and great-grandson, Chaquantei Q. Fowler.

On Friday, March 18, 2022, Clara slipped into eternity.  With her birthday on the horizon, she decided to spend this year’s birthday around the throne with her Lord and Savior. Her legacy of love, faith, and hope will forever echo throughout eternity and in the hearts of her family and friends.
