Tribute

Lydia Bangs Tierney entered peacefully into eternal rest on October 30, 2020, just short of her 100th birthday.  She was born on November 17, 1920 in New Orleans, LA and was a resident of Metairie for almost 50 years. Lydia was preceded in death and is now reunited with her beloved husband Carl, to whom she was married for 65 years, her parents Otto J. Bangs, Loretta Dixon Bangs and her 5 sisters, Esther, Lillian, Kitty, Shirley and Loretta.  Lydia retired from South Central Bell after 30+ years of service and then volunteered at East Jefferson General Hospital for many years after retirement.  She was also a member of the South Central Bell Pioneers and the Circle of Friends. A lifelong parishioner of St. Christopher the Martyr Parish, Lydia was a devout Catholic who will be remembered for her dedication to the Lord, even through daily televised Mass in her elder years.  Survivors include a daughter, Carole T. Batt (Merlin), a son, Carl Tierney (Amber), grandchildren Melissa B. Winingham, Gabriella and Elliot Tierney, a great-granddaughter, Megan Winingham, along with her dear nieces and nephew, Marie Cordes, Barbara Heinick, David Lagasse, Peggy Klein, many great-nieces, nephews and close friends.  The family would also like to acknowledge Carpenter House, River Ridge for the care they provided to Lydia in her final days.  In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a charity of your choice.
