Oct. 11, 1966 — Aug. 24, 2011
Juanise Lovell Floyd, a resident of Bayou Vista, was received into eternal rest on Wednesday, Aug. 24, 2011. She passed away unexpectedly, but peacefully, on the shrimp boat in Oyster Bayou doing what she loved at the tender age of 44.
She was a devoted wife to the love of her life. She was there for everything and anything he needed. She was a true mother! She loved her kids and provided them with a home full of love, home-cooked meals daily, her time and energy, and her ability to communicate with them on any level.
She was the best daughter a mother could ask for, and the most awesome sister that anyone could have. You couldn’t ask for a better aunt and nanny. She loved those kids and was a friend of many. You would never go hungry around Juanise’s house as you were always welcome to grab a bite of whatever she had cooked. Some of our favorites were her beef stew, chicken spaghetti and shrimp dip. She loved her peanut butter candy, and she liked talking and getting to know people.
She loved to put the music blaring, jammin’ to the radio. She enjoyed playing bingo, and would give the shirt off her back to a stranger, friend or family member.
Juanise is survived by her husband of 24 years, Joel Floyd of Bayou Vista; one daughter, Shara Floyd of Bayou Vista; one son, Joel Floyd II of Bayou Vista; her mother, Geraldine Lovell of Bayou Vista; two sisters, Jennine Lovell Martin and her husband Michael, and Cresside Lovell, all of Bayou Vista; two brothers, Leroy Lovell Jr. and his wife Sheila of Theriot, and Leeland Lovell and his wife Katie of Morgan City; her mother-in-law and father-in-law, Margaret and Edward “Smokey” Floyd of Bayou Vista; and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her father, Leroy Lovell Sr.; maternal grandmother and grandfather, Thelma Adams Lacoste and Gerald Lacoste; grandfather, Oscar Lacoste Sr.; and paternal grandmother and grandfather, Nora Dehart Lovell and Vincent Lovell.
