Jacqueline Marie Chauvin, 64, a native of Napoleonville and resident of Youngsville, was born Oct. 31, 1949, and passed away Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2014, after a three month long battle with West Nile Virus.
Visitation will be from 9 a.m. until funeral time Monday at St. Anne Catholic Church in Napoleonville. A Mass of Christian burial will be at 11 a.m. Monday at the church, with burial in the church cemetery.
She is survived by her ex-husband and friend, Wayne Cox Sr.; children, Brandon Cox Sr. and wife, Stephanie, Wayne "Dubbie" Cox Jr. and wife, Yelena, Alma Cox Enriquez and husband, Carlos, Munsye Rita Cox, and Jacqueline Cox Eschete and husband, Dax; sister, Jan Chauvin De Diaz; niece, Alana Diaz; and nephew, Ernesto Munson Diaz.
She was preceded in death by her father and mother, Munson and Rita Politz Chauvin.
She was a devoted mother and grandmother. She was known as "Ganny" to her 17 grandchildren. She doted on them at every opportunity, especially her beloved Sophia Sully Francis Cox. She prided herself on her keen sensibility for safety and nature's remedies. She loved to cook. She always said she didn't know how to make a small meal and would share with anyone who needed.
She was beautiful in body and soul. She will be deeply missed by her family as we wait to be reunited with our sweet, sweet mama in heaven.
Landry's Funeral Home in Thibodaux is in charge of arrangements.
