She never entered a room in which she did not leave a lasting effect. She never met a stranger, beloved friends too many to list, and quick with a Cajun joke that could command any room. Family was paramount in her life, and she was steadfast in her Catholic Faith. Love and compassion for others she championed to those who couldn't champion for themselves. We will miss your smile, laughter and a zest for life in which all our lives have been inspired and cherish the memories you have instilled in us forever. "I`ll Drink to That", "If you don't have a Good Time it`s your own Damn Fault", "Laissez les bons temps rouler" and "Faith, Family, and Friends are what will get you through Life". Walk with God Mom, we love you. Funeral Mass will be held at St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church, 1050 Robert Blvd, Slidell, LA, on Saturday, September 18, 2021, at 11:00 am. Friends may visit at the church beginning at 9:30 am. Burial will be in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Slidell. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to Wounded Warriors
