She was part of the Lafourche Parish School system for more than 30 years. Her early years were spent teaching, and mid-way through her career, she became a librarian due to her love of reading books.
She was a member of the Mothers Club of E.D. White and was fondly known as "Mama-ta" among her children's friends.
After retirement she volunteered as a Pink Lady at Thibodaux General Hospital and participated in numerous clubs and activities.
Finally, the family would like to thank Mrs. Ann Thibodaux and the residents and staff of St. Joseph Manor for the special year our mother was a resident.
