Mabel Savoie Obituary
Mabel Marie (Sonnier) Savoie, age 73, of Porter Texas was born on October 4, 1939 in Lafayette, Louisiana and passed away on July 10th, 2013. Mabel was an American singer and guitar player with roots in Southern Louisiana's country and western and Cajun music scene. She was one of the first solo female recording artists in Louisiana, and as a result, she received a key to the "City of Opelousas" for her accomplishments. Her career is documented in Wikipedia. Not only was she a gifted musician, she was also a devoted and loving wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, great grandmother and friend, and touched many lives along her life's journey. She was a loving mother to her children; Dean Savoie, Tammy Savoie, Miriam Pratt and husband Allyn; "Earth Momma" to Laurie Amann; a cherished grandmother to her grandchildren; Ryan Pratt and Krystal Pratt, her great granddaughter; Kinsley Pratt and survived by many nieces and nephews. She will be truly missed by her extended family that cared for her immensely: the entire Pratt family, Jan Grimaldi, Erin Bush, Debbie Kelso, Brandy Davis, Pattie and Paul McNutt, Stu and Jan Leaverton and her sister-in-law and cruising buddy, Wilda Speyrer. She is preceded in death by her mother, father, sister, brother, and the love of her life, her husband, Sam L. Savoie. She is now singing with the Lord and will be missed by her family and friends beyond words.
Service will be held on Saturday, July 13th at LaFond Ardoin Funeral Home, 2845 S. Union St., Opelousas, LA 70570. Interment will follow in Bellevue Memorial Park.
