Camille, a resident of Lafayette, LA was the daughter of the late Floyd DeRouen and the former Stephanie Bienvenu.
Stevie graduated from Our Lady of Fatima High School in 1963 and the University of Southwestern Louisiana (USL) in 1967 with a degree in Medical Records. After working in Houma and Beaumont, Stevie returned to Lafayette and began her career at Our Lady of Lourdes. Following her marriage to Raymond Pellerin and the birth of her daughter Michele, Stevie left her career to devote herself fully to her husband and daughter. She loved cooking, watching ice skating, collecting angels, and spending time with her family and friends.
In her later years as she dealt with severe physical pain and breast cancer
, her joyful spirit permeated every room she entered. She loved talking to people, friends and strangers alike. Even while receiving chemo treatments, she comforted others while making them smile and laugh.
She is survived by her loving husband of forty three years Raymond J. Pellerin; her mother, Stephanie B. DeRouen; one daughter, Michele P. Turner and her husband Bentley; two grandsons, Banyan Turner and Spencer Turner.
She was preceded in death by her father Floyd DeRouen.
