Norma Behan Heurtin, our beautiful mother, entered into heaven on Friday, December 16, 2016 at the age of 94 with her family by her side. She was born on September 13, 1922 in New Orleans, LA. She was active in many organizations; Miriam Chapter #17, Order of the Eastern Stars, Daughters of the Nile, and Daraf Ladies and was a long–time member of St. Augustine's Episcopal Church. She fulfilled her dream of going to Ireland at the age of 87. She loved riding on floats in Mardi Gras parades and Cajun dancing where she met her beloved husband, Daniel Heurtin. She was preceded in death by her husband of 14 years. Together they made their home in Metairie, LA. She is survived by five loving children, E. Charles Bilbe (Diane), Lynne Bilbe de Blois (Chuck), Cecelia Raymond Fugetta (Terry), Francine Raymond Foglesong (Dan), Kenneth Raymond. She was loved by 16 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, John William Behan and Alberta Veron Behan; two sisters, Kathleen Wild and Dolores Baker; brother, John Behan; son, Dennis John Bilbe.

I know what a tremendous sense of loss your family must be feeling at this time since I also lost my own mother just a few months ago. I pray that it may be of some comfort to your family to reflect on how God has blessed Norma with a good long life which has been full of excitement and adventures, like seeing Ireland in her late 80's. Norma's now experiencing the ultimate new adventure of being in Heaven where she has been restored to perfect health, and is now feeling God's infinite divine Love, Joy, Peace and complete Understanding of God's plan for all of us! May God bless and comfort you during this sorrowful time.
