A gathering to celebrate the life of Lois Ann Billiot Guidroz, age 69, will be held at Evangeline Funeral Home of Delcambre on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 from 9 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. Mrs. Guidroz will be laid to rest with her husband at Holy Family Mausoleum at 3 p.m. immediately following the visitation. Lois was born October 26, 1947 in Golden Meadow, La to the late Jean “John” Billiot and the late Jullienne Verdun Billiot, all direct descendants of the Houma Nation. She passed away peacefully on Sunday, November 13, 2016 at her residence surrounded by her loving family.
Lois was a homemaker who spent her days caring for her family and many others as well. Some of her favorite pastimes were sewing and tending to her vegetable garden. But cooking and sharing meals was at the top of that list. Her grandchildren will always remember her for making the best Chili for their birthday celebrations, and her smothered chicken was second to none. She had a smile that let you know you were a friend, and her heart was full of love. She leaves behind many fond memories that will be cherished by all who knew and loved her.
Survivors include her children, April G. Tatum (Joseph Tatum, Jr.) of Delcambre, Lillie T. Guidroz of Abbeville, Jeremiah K. Guidroz (Karen M. Guidroz) of Erath, Torrey T. Guidroz (Helen M. Guidroz) of Erath, Julliene A. Leyva (Justin Leyva) of Houston, and Frannie K. Guidroz of Delcambre; 13 grandchildren, Ralen LeBlanc, Harley L. Darby (Joey), Joshua Boudreaux (Mishala), Kirsten B. Beary (Thomas), Mariah Tatum, Alexia Breaux, Cory Guidroz, Colby Guidroz, Javier Leyva, Arianna Leyva, Zailee Leyva, Natalie Guidroz and Kian Leyva; four great grandchildren, Natalie Darby, Tevin Gary, Jaxon Beary and Adelaide Beary; and her brother, Adam G. Billiot. Lois also helped her parents raise three nephews, John Billiot, William “Willie” Billiot and the late Troy Billiot, Sr., whom she loved as her own children.
Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Keith J. Guidroz; and her brothers and sisters, Roger, John, Antoine and Loren “Lawrence” Billiot, Juliete, Lillian and Marie Billiot, Alma B. Luke and Eve B. Terrebonne.
Serving as pallbearers are Jeremiah, Torrey, Willie, John, Ralen, Joshua, Adam, Cory, Colby, Javier, Joseph and Justin.
