On her birthday, Wednesday September 16, 2015, Hazel Rebstock Rome, 93, was born again into her long awaited eternal life with our Lord. She was a native of Golden Meadow for the first 75 years of life and resident of St. Joseph Manor and Thibodaux Healthcare Center since.
She was married to the late Ervin Paul Rome with whom she had four children: Sandra Rome Clement, Michael Paul Rome, Mary Patricia Rome, and James Patrick Rome. She is survived by all four children along with her son-in-law, Leslie Clement Jr. and four grandchildren, Paul Joseph Clement wife Stacey, Philip Gregory Clement, Rebecca Claire Clement, Jenna Rome Simmons Oldham husband Zach and great-grandson Tyler James Oldham.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Jackson Fernand Rebstock and Augusta Marcombe Rebstock in addition to her only sister Ruth Rebstock Dantin.
Mrs. Rome as many knew her was a teacher! English was her specialty, and she taught at Golden Meadow High School Jr. High for 31 years. When not teaching and being a full-time mom, she actively served God through many ministries at Our Lady of Prompt Succor Catholic Church. When she moved to St. Joseph Manor, she continued her service to the Lord as a lector and extraordinary minister.
Visitation will be Saturday September 19, at Our Lady of Prompt Succor Catholic Church in Golden Meadow, from 9 to 11 a.m. with a celebratory mass beginning at 11 a.m. Burial will immediately follow in the church cemetery.
Falgout Funeral home is entrusted with the funeral services. In lieu of flowers, please have masses said in her name at OLOPS or your Catholic church of choice.
