She was a kind, generous, nurturing, loving, strong-willed and hard working woman whose life were her children and grand children. She lived a long and simple life. She was our family matriarch and led by example. Besides her family her greatest loves in life were cooking and baking. She cooked thousands of meals and was known for her sweet dough pies. She sewed many missing buttons in her lifetime. She was a mother and grandmother to any kid who needed a mom. Her dog, Sockey, was like another child to her. The testament of a life well lived is the love she left behind and Mama transitioned from this life with amazing grace on enduring love.
Special thanks to all who helped Mo-Mo fight this courageous battle against Alzheimer and cancer. We would like to extend our gratitude to Hospice of Acadiana for their attentive care.
