Regina H. Pitre, 81, a resident of Galliano, passed away on November 24, 2018. She brought joy to family and friends through her cooking, singing, and sense of humor. Consider yourself lucky to have tasted her famous croquesignoles (crock-see-alls), heard her sing church hymns, or tell stories about living off of the land.

She is survived by daughters, Joycelyn Cheramie (Tony), Debbie Hornback (Keith), and Jackie Breaux (Jason); siblings, Benton Hodge, Sorita Johnson, and Jane Rousse; 10 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.

Regina was preceded in death by husband, Edward J. Pitre; son, Donald Pitre; parents, John Hodge and Alzina Bruce; siblings, Mike Hodge, Freddie Hodge, and Edoria Bourg.

Visitation will be held from 5 - 9 p.m. on Tuesday, November 27, and 8 – 10 a.m. on Wednesday at Falgout Funeral Home. Service will be held at 10 a.m. on Wednesday with a burial to follow at Cheramie Cemetery.
