Bernita Marie Doiga Miller Chustz, known to family & friends as "Neno," passed away peacefully on March 28, 2018, at the age of 77 years at her home in Gonzales, LA.
Born December 1, 1940, she was a native of Church Point, LA.

She was preceded in death by parents, Charles & Pearl Doiga, sister Lou Ella Doiga Roy, brother Thomas Eckert Doiga, brother Rayford Doiga, and sister Ruth Doiga Thibodeaux.
Neno was a very gifted artist leaving us many beautiful paintings, loved to laugh, and have her evening coffee. She absolutely loved to grow flowers, work in her yard, and was an avid reader. Her great-grandchildren, all of whom she adored, always knew to walk down the path to her house, knock on the door, and go to her secret stash of snacks which she always kept full. Over the years, she was a homemaker, ran a small post office, worked at a general store, and a deli where she created beautiful cakes. She was a hard worker and very creative always doing her absolute best in whatever she set her hands to accomplish. Neno will be greatly missed by all who loved and knew her.
A family celebration of Neno's life will be held at a later date.
Special thank you to Bridgeway Hospice in Baton Rouge for the loving, compassionate care and support during her brief illness.
