Carol was born Feb. 6, 1949, the daughter of Rudolph Peter Lodrigue and Elaine LaHoste Lodrigue.
Carol had such a huge heart, she would give the shirt off her back if she had to. She lived for her kids and grandkids, who meant the most to her; Carol loved embarrassing her grandkids in grocery stores, baking cakes for them, and photographing her family. She also loved to go listen to her husband play music, and they enjoyed dancing the night away together. Carol also enjoyed going to bingo and bargain shopping. She was an avid LSU fan; though she liked LSU football, she absolutely loved LSU baseball, and she would often go watch her godchild, Michelle Hensgens, play LSU volleyball.
