One time when Clara was twelve or fourteen years old, her mother, Lula was very sick and finally decided to go to the hospital to have an ovary removed.They were living at either San Antonio or Austin, Texas on Duval Street, with Aunt Georgia, who was city detective.Suddenly there was a big explosion at the round house during the morning shift change.The fire box from one of the trains landed between their house and another and there were pieces of entrails and pieces of bodies all over.Some parts were even hanging from telephone wires.
Lula died in a car wreck.It was raining and she made a U turn.The car skidded on the streetcar tracks and she hit a telephone pole and was killed.
