July 24, 1941 — January 8, 2014
Glenda Ragus Jambois, a native of Forest and resident Bayou Vista, passed away Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2014, at the age of 72.
Glenda was a Catholic by faith and a member of St. Stephens Catholic Church. She loved her family with all her heart and did all she could for them. An avid Saints and LSU fan, she really enjoyed a good ball game! You could rest assured Glenda would be in her chair before every kick off! Glenda also enjoyed baseball and tennis. She was a marvelous cook, her specialties were not limited, but her family and her neighbors especially loved her shrimp spaghetti, cornbread dressing and crawfish etouffee. Glenda enjoyed her participation in the Bayou Vista Garden Club where she was a member. The club’s Birthday Girls trips, which were held every first Tuesday of each month, were a favorite of Glenda’s because the ladies would all gather and have the time of their lives. Glenda was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved this special lady.
Glenda leaves to cherish her memory, her daughter, Tracey Jambois Diboll and her husband, Derek Diboll, of Morgan City; her sons, Sidney Jambois III of Morgan City and Christopher Jambois and his wife, Cherry, of Anaheim, Calif.; her grandchildren, Matthew Jambois, Sydney Page Jambois, Nadine Jambois and Zachary Jambois; her mother, Laverne Vinson of Memphis, Tenn.; her half-brothers, Charles Vinson of Memphis, Tenn., and Bobby Vinson, also of Tennessee; and her sister, Helen Ragus Hinson of Brandon, Miss.
Glenda was preceded in death by her husband, Sidney Jambois II; her father, Troy Ragus; and her brothers, Jerry, Larry and Ronnie Ragus.
