Mrs. Fontenot, age 83, died on Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2016, at her Wasilla, Alaska, home -where she wanted to be with her loving husband and best friend, Bryan, when the time came.
She is survived by her husband, Bryan Fontenot of over 44 years; her sons, Douglas Burdick and his wife Brenda and their children, Jamie, Jennifer, Colt and Eric and five great-grandchildren, Zachary, Emily, Erin, Tyler and Abby; and her son, Lony Burdick with his wife Rhonda and their daughter Kris Rhoades; her son, Adrien Tucker and his wife, Violette; Kathy's sister, Gerry and husband Harold Baque of Opelousas, La.; sister, Melody Gilcrease of Scott, La.; and nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Pierre and Hilda Darbonne; her sister, Brunella Fruge; her brother, Hubert Darbonne; her brother, Joseph "Buddy" Darbonne; her son, Barth Eric Burdick; nieces, Toni and Patty Andrus; and nephew, Jody Darbonne.
She will be greatly missed by all family and friends too great in numbers to count and all who knew her loved her.
Kathy asked that there be no viewing and that there be a memorial service held for friends and family to attend at the Sunny Knik Church in Wasilla, Alaska, that she and Bryan attended. Kathy wished to be cremated and her ashes spread on the Kenai River.
The family would like to send special thanks to all those who share in the loss of this wonderful wife, mother and friend, such a gentle soul and a loving heart.
