Rita Olivier Guidry, a native and resident of Houma, passed away on June 9, 2021. She was 69 years old. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend. She worked as a postal carrier for many years, but her most important role was that of family matriarch, where she made sure that all milestones and events were celebrated in a special way. Her family was the most important thing in her life, and she was never happier than when her family was all together.
