She was married to Willie Edwin Regan from Monroe, Louisiana on November 10, 1942. The couple lived briefly in Alexandria, Louisiana and Biloxi, Mississippi until moving to Lafayette in 1952. Here, Mr. and Mrs. Regan reared their daughters until Willie's untimely death in 1974. Mrs. Regan went on to delight in her grandchildren. Besides being devoted to her own family, Mrs. Regan extended her care to other children in our community, first as the owner of The Little Red Schoolhouse from 1952-1966, then with the special education department of Lafayette Parish Schools until 1982. Following the completion of her Master's degree from USL in 1970, she served a five-year term working under State Superintendent of Education Louis Michot from 1972-1977.

Mrs. Regan extended her call to charity beyond her own church through various community volunteer organizations. She served as president and vice president of Lafayette General Hospital Pink Ladies and was one of the first volunteers for Hospice of Acadiana. She served as president and longtime member of L'Heure d'Amitie Women's Club, International Good Neighbors' Council and member and president of Krewe of Attakapas. Prior to her husband's death, the couple was active in Krewe of Gabriel and Order of the Troubadours as well as Oakbourne Country Club and Lafayette Town House Club. They were proprietors of Regan's Racquet and Tennis Shop. Through the years, she enjoyed traveling across the United States, Mexico and Europe with family and friends, enjoying other cultures and sampling other cuisines. Those who knew her knew she lived out one of her favorite quotes from her volunteering days at Hospice, "You matter to the last moment of your life, and we will do all we can, not only to help you die peacefully, but to live until you die." In the spirit of her Catholic faith, we know she lives and loves on.
