She was a member of Israel Chapel United  Methodist Church,  Rev. Theo Mays, Pastor.

She enjoyed the laughter of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She will be missed for her feisty  character, her love for cooking and the comfort she provided for all those in need. At thanksgivings, everyone knew who made what dressing. The spices in her gumbo and boudin left you wanting more. She will be forever in our hearts.
