She was born in Scott, LA on December 11, 1917 and was a resident of Lafayette for more than 70 years. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and friend, who will be greatly missed.
Her joys in life were cooking for and spending time with her family, baking, crocheting, and gifted storytelling, especially of the good old days and her passion and talent for dancing and getting her hair done - a true Southern belle and original diva.
She was a member of St. Anthony Catholic Church and of St. Anthony's Ladies Auxiliary Court 166 for several decades. After many years of service, Ms. Arceneaux retired as a food service worker with the Lafayette Parish School Board.
Survivors include her son, Clayton Arceneaux and his wife, Gladys; daughter, Patricia Arceneaux Cravins and her husband, Donald; grandchildren, Angela (Jermaine) Arceneaux Trahan, Donald (Yvette) Cravins, Jr., Clayton Arceneaux, Jr., Denni Cravins, and Dustin (Jessica) Cravins; ten great grandchildren, a sister-in-law, Viola Mallet and a host of loving nieces and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Antoine Arceneaux; her parents, Edwin Mallet and Philomene Anderson Mallet; her brother, Gumbleton Mallet and her sister, Mervy Mallet Gradney.
The family would like to extend special thanks to her caregivers at Evangeline Oaks Guest House. The incredible support and compassion given to our loved one and to us will never be forgotten.
