Marie Louise attended Mercy Academy and Delgado Community College. She worked as a secretary and bookkeeper for Ochsner Hospital and various law firms throughout her life. She was a voracious reader, crossword puzzle solver and dog lover. Her biggest joys in life were her family, whom she was always willing to help, Saints games, crawfish boils and Mobley gatherings where she was usually the life of the party! She is and will be missed by all who knew her. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to St. Jude Children’s Hospital or the St. Charles Humane Society in her memory.
