She was born on Aug. 4, 1938 in Miami and was a resident of Patterson for the last 40 years of her life.

She previously owned Slone’s Dump Truck Service, and for the last eight years has enjoyed her part-time work as a travel consultant at Cajun Coast Visitors & Convention Bureau in Franklin. She was an active member of Trinity Episcopal Church in Morgan City and was a faithful servant of the Lord.

She also is survived by six grandchildren, Dale Simoneaux, Georgette Cuvillier, Samantha Simoneaux, Logan Bertrand, Sydney Bertrand and Alexandra Chellette; six great-grandchildren; one brother and sister-in-law, Norton and Peggy Stafford of Houston; and her constant furry companion, Macie Grace.
