Obituary of Leatrice Delaune Seymour
Leatrice Delaune Seymour, our beloved mother and patriarch, grandmother and great grandmother, peacefully entered into eternal peace and rest Wednesday, August 3, 2022. At her passing she was 86. Leatrice was born May 28, 1936 in St. Martinville to the late Tild Delaune and the late Manola Lasseigne Delaune, one of four children born to that union. She was raised in a family steeped in cajun heritage. She was retired from Jeanerette Mills as an Inspector with over 20 years of faithful service. Outside of her work, Leatrice enjoyed a simple, albeit full life with everything that brought her joy. Lynne remembers her mother’s skill as a seamstress and the beautiful clothing she made for them. Dresses for the girls and cowboy shirts for the boys, and they loved it. Her cooking and baking was enjoyed by all as well. Cajun food was a specialty of hers and her jambalaya and white beans were always a hit, but they all remember the scratch chocolate cakes she baked. In her earlier years, she traveled and was able to take a European vacation. But some of her best times where enjoyed at home. Family get-togethers with her sister and brothers in St. Martinville, laying back on the sofa to read a book, or caring for her flowers, especially her stag horns, were times she cherished. Those left to cherish her memory are her children, Lynne Romero Hotard and Ted, Timothy Romero and Sherry, and Jonathan Paul Romero; a son-in-law, Bryan Landry; eight grandchildren, Kardell “Dell” Landry, Jr., Sommer Landry-Richard, Jarrett Landry, Kristen Renee’ Romero, Bryan Christopher Landry, Drake Landry, Kalyn Romero and Abby Romero; 20 great grandchildren; her step children, Donald Seymour and Donna Seymour-Gilliland; and two step grandchildren, Tabitha Thompson and Robert K. Seymour. Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Robert K. Seymour; her daughter who passed away September of 2021, Dianne Romero Landry; an infant son, David Romero; and her sister and brothers, Patsy Akers, Richard Delaune and Elmer Delaune. A memorial service celebrating Mrs. Seymour’s life will be held at 11:00 am Saturday, August 20, 2022 at Evangeline Funeral Home with Fr. Ed Degeyter officiating. Visiting hours will be held on Saturday from 8:00 am until time of services. Leatrice will be laid to rest privately at Beau Pre Memorial Park Cemetery at a later date. Leatrice was a charitable person and often gave to charities close to her heart.
