Mrs. Roy, 88, of Alexandria, passed away May 7, 2014 at Rapides Regional Medical Center.
Denise Guillory Roy was born in Hessmer, Louisiana on June 2, 1925 to Adele Rabalais and Gide Guillory. She was preceded in death by her parents, her loving husband of seventy years, Percy Joseph Roy, and her daughter, Elizabeth Roy Jackson.
Those left to cherish her memory include her son, Joseph Lee Roy, and wife Karen of St. Peters, Missouri; six grandchildren, Nicole Stacey Baker, Jennifer Jill Roy, Wendy Lynn Jackson Brewer and husband Billy Brewer, Kathy Ann Roy Simon, and Patricia Allison Roy Shiermeyer; and six great-grandchildren, Sydney, Jolie, David, Brian, Anna Beth, and Brandon.
Throughout her life, Denise was driven to care for her family, which she accomplished without fail. Her children and grandchildren were always first in her priorities. Denise was a role model to her family. She never shied from hard work or challenges, and she instilled in her loved ones an incredible work ethic. Denise believed if something was worth doing, it should be done right. Denise was a living example of this ideal in her position as salesperson in the drapery department at Montgomery Ward in Alexandria, where she worked from the day the store opened its doors until it closed. From that day on, Denise's world revolved around her great-grandchildren, whom she enjoyed spoiling day after day.
Although Denise will be greatly missed, her family will relive the memories she leaves when they hear words spoken in "Cajun" French, when they catch the scent of gumbo cooking, and, of course, when there are windows in need of dressing.
Pallbearers will be Billy Brewer, Ronnie Brewer, Kevin Malone, Calvin Bordelon, Frank Close, and Johnny Wagley.
