She retired from Murphy Oil Corporation after 25 years of dedicated service. She was a devoted parishioner of Christ the King Catholic Church in Terrytown and a member of the Christ the King’s Woman’s Club. She was a great dancer and a fabulous cook. She loved seafood, fruit, and coconut cream snoballs. She loved all things New Orleans, was a Saints fan and visited many of those places that ain’t there no more. She loved to talk (a lot) and laugh (so hard she would cry). She loved her family and adored her grandchildren. She was full of life and a blessing to us all.
