She was a member of the Ladies Altar Society and was a devoted Catholic. She enjoyed cooking, baking and sewing; which she shared with her family and friends. She opened her door to nieces, nephews and friends when they were in need. She was an amazing person with many talents of carpentry and yard seasonal decorations. She never met a stranger. She was loved and will be missed by many.

Special thanks to Journey Hospice, Allison Plaisance, Maria Prejean, Courtney Lee and Jene Decuir, who gave mom communion every Thursday.
