MANDY TERREBONNE


Mandy LeBoeuf Terrebonne, 87, passed away peacefully in her sleep at 2:34 p.m. on Wednesday, August 28, 2019. A native of Terrebonne Parish, and the daughter of a blacksmith and a seamstress, she was raised on the Plantation Point Farm in Montegut, but she lived the better part of her life in Galliano, Lafourche Parish, Louisiana. Mandy was a true Cajun, through and through, tracing her Acadian/Cajun heritage to 1637.

Mandy was an active school, community and civic leader. She was President of multiple local school PTAs and a volunteer at Lady of the Sea General Hospital. She was leader of her children’s Brownie and Girl Scout Troups, Camp Fire Girls, and Cub Scout Den. Mandy was a member of the Scholarship Committee of Partners in Education, a local private scholarship group that assisted many local students in attending college during the 1980s and 1990s.

A loving wife and traveling companion of her husband Linwood “Woody” Terrebonne, Mandy was an adventurous and inquisitive traveler who easily made lifelong friends during her travels to the fifty U.S. States, two U.S. Territories, forty-two foreign countries and eight Canadian Provinces. She also loved going on cruises so much that she took seventy-seven cruises ranging from the Baltic to the South Pacific and the Caribbean. She loved animals and was an avid sports fan and follower of the LSU Tigers, New Orleans Saints and Pelicans and Los Angeles Dodgers.

Mandy was predeceased in death by her father Pierre Nicolas LeBoeuf, mother Palmire LeBoeuf LeBoeuf; sisters, Effie LeBoeuf Sevin, Doris LeBoeuf Boudreaux and Lilly Mae LeBoeuf; brothers, Andy Joseph LeBoeuf and Nicholas Anthony LeBoeuf and step-grandson Brent Rivere. She is survived by her husband Linwood “Woody” Pierre Terrebonne; daughters, Elaine Rivere and Theresa Terrebonne; son, Joel Terrebonne; grandchildren, Melissa Delaune, Tommy Hebert, Scott Rivere, Joshua Bourg; step-grandson, Hansel Rivere, Jr., five great grandchildren and one great great granddaughter.

A wake will take place on Friday evening, August 30, at Falgout Funeral Home, in Cut Off, from 4:00-5:00 p.m. for family and 5:00-8:00 p.m. for friends and loved ones. Viewing will begin on Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. at Our Lady of Prompt Succor Church, in Golden Meadow.
