She was a housewife and homemaker. A lady with much pride, whose heart was as big as her smile. She had a love for good music and culture with her trips to New Orleans taking in the city. Her favorite place above all is the beach, which she would have gladly lived there if she could. But her biggest love of all were her grandchildren. They were her everything, her reason for getting up everyday. She was able to play and be silly and make beautiful memories. We will forever be grateful for all of the love that she shared with us. She will be forever in our hearts.
Services will be at a later time. Donations in lieu of final costs.
Samart Funeral Home of Houma, West Park is in charge of arrangements.
