She moved to New Orleans in the late 1940’s. She worked as a secretary for Halliburton and was an excellent dance instructor and bowler. She moved to Metairie, LA, met Chuck, married him and resided there for over 50 years. She was a parishioner of St. Ann’s Parish. She enjoyed and met many wonderful friends over the years at Halliburton, the Mascots, the People Program, St. Ann’s Church, Spice World, Kehoe-France School, Academy of the Sacred Heart, Knights of Columbus, and the American Legion. She enjoyed traveling with her husband, family and friends to LSU games, bowling tournaments, Disney World, Spice World, vacations and on bus trips to many cities. She also loved to watch Lawrence Welk. I would like to thank Mr. and Mrs. Andy Caneza and their entire family for all of their friendship, support and kindness over many decades. When she was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2008, she was cared for by her husband, daughter, sister, mainly her niece, Cindy Melancon, many of her daughter’s best friends, Heart of Hospice, Ameracare Hospice, and St. Joseph Hospice.
