She was a 1955 graduate from Terrebonne High School. She married after graduation and moved to Houma where she never really retired from the only job she cherished most, which was loving her children, grandchildren, and family. She was a parishioner of St. Bernadette Catholic Church in Houma. She was a member of Broadmoor Garden Club, Bowling League, and a Charter member in which she was Queen for Krewe of Aphrodites in 1994. 

In her 85 years, she committed her entire life to loving her husband, children, grandchildren, and family with her unending faith, hard work, dedication, and special love. Her family and friends will forever miss her but find comfort in knowing that their loss on Earth is Heaven's gain with the Lord and the Love of Her Life, Roy. 

Special thanks to Haydel Memorial Hospice for all their loving care.
