Bertha Rose Lambremont lived a rich, full and eventful life, while enriching the lives of those who knew her. The New Orleans Arts Community lost a longtime, well respected member on February 6, 2014 at 11:12 PM, when Ms. Lambremont passed away. Owner of Lambremont Art Care, she specialized in museum quality perfect-framing of fine art. During her career Ms. Lambremont operated businesses in Quebec, Canada; then in Metairie and New Orleans. She is survived by her life partner of 35 years, Deborah "Deb" Alicia Kohler; four sisters, Ruth Lorio (George), Jo-Ann Gleason (Larry), Clara Therio, and Olivia Parsons; three brothers, Lawrence (Sharon), Howard, and Louis (Freddie). Also survived by nine nephews, two nieces, and many grand nephews, and grand nieces. Preceded in death by her parents, Lawrence Sigur Lambremont and Mary Marsh Lambremont. She was a native of New Orleans and resident of Metairie. Bertha loved all animals, and she and Deb shared their life with their many companion canines and felines. Bertha had a deep devotion to St. Padre Pio (1887 – 1968), the beloved Italian priest who bore the stigmata. In the late 1980s she framed a pair of St. Padre Pio's gloves and altar cloths for a Capuchin friar, so they could be preserved for the multitude of pilgrims who visit his grave. Bertha was a creative, courageous, generous, pure-sprit who will be sadly missed. Relatives and friends are invited to attend the visitation and Memorial Mass at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, 444 Metairie Road on Saturday, February 15, 2014. Visitation will begin at 10:00 AM, followed by a Memorial Mass at 11:00 AM. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the charity or cause of your choice.
