Marie was a beautiful, hard-working, devoted, and loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and dear friend to those who knew her. She was a blessing to us all with a forever smile, generous spirit, and servant heart. Her family was a top priority of hers and she loved spending time with them whenever she could. She was an amazing cook and always enjoyed having her home full of laughter and life. She was a member of the Altar Society of St. Anthony and LSU Extension Homemakers Club. Her passions included dancing, cooking, sewing, painting, and traveling. She was a devoted Catholic who loved her church and religion. Marie leaves a beautiful legacy behind to be reunited with her parents, brother, and sister. May she rest peacefully in the arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
The family would like to thank Angel Dardar, her home caregiver; Ochsner Home Health nurses and physical therapist, St. Anne Hospital and Notre Dame Hospice for all the loving support that was given to both Marie and her family.
In lieu of flowers please make donations to St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in Bayou Black.
