Helena Abadie Boudreaux
August 23, 1927 ~ November 11, 2023 (age 96) 96 Years Old
Helena "Sis" Abadie Boudreaux passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, November 11, 2023 at the age of 96. She was the beloved wife of the late David J. Boudreaux for 50 years. She is survived by her 4 children: William D. Boudreaux (Debbie), Judy B. Senior (Wesley), Linda B. Arnold (late, Ricky), and Gary J. Boudreaux (Annette); 8 grandchildren: Lonnie, Kevin (Tracie), and Cory (Tina) Senior, Derek and Trey Arnold, Lindsey Boudreaux, Katie Savoie (Kirk), & Ross (Kristin) and Paul Boudreaux; 5 great-grandchildren: Cameron and Beau Senior, Allison and Emily Hedrick, & Adelaide Boudreaux; one sister, Kathleen Chauvin; and numerous nieces and nephews. Helena was preceded in death by her parents, Lewis and Cecile Alice T. Abadie, and her siblings: Lorraine Haydel, Melba Langlois, Verina Gulotta, Marjorie Abadie, Louis Abadie, and Lawrence Abadie.
Upon the early death of her mother at the age of 5, Helena was lovingly raised by her aunt and uncle, Willy and Amelia Boudreaux. She was a proud graduate of Romeville High School in Central, LA. Although completing business school and working part-time, her greatest job was being a homemaker, loving wife, and mother. She was actively involved in her children's activities with sports and clubs most often being the "taxi driver". She was a great model to her entire family of Catholic values and prayers. Helena and her husband, Davis, participated in radio rosary for St. Catherine of Siena and was also a member of the SCS Altar Society.
