Lauren Marie Lartigue Horridge

November 12, 1959June 21, 2020

Lauren Marie Lartigue Horridge passed away on the evening of June 21, 2020, at the age of 60 years in the company of her loving family. Her beloved husband of 40 years, Edward C. Horridge III, survives her. Lauren is also survived by her three children, Griffin Edward Horridge (Kathryn Lee Horridge), Sean Christopher Horridge and Mallory Virginia Horridge; her four siblings, C.W. Lartigue IV, Donna Rae Maggio, Christopher W. Lartigue, M.D., and Laurette Elaine Jacob; and by her two grandchildren, Brady Edward Horridge and Hayden Margaret Horridge. Lauren was born to parents Clement Wickliff Lartigue III and Virginia Rae Sugarek Lartigue on November 12, 1959, in New Orleans, Louisiana.

A native of New Orleans, Lauren treasured her life as a gift and chose devoting it selflessly to others. Whether family, friends, or those encountered in her medical profession (patients, associates, and medical staff), one of her greatest attributes was compassion towards those in need. A graduate of Chapelle High School in 1977, Lauren entered the University of New Orleans to obtain the pre-requisites toward her first step in the field of medicine. In 1979, Lauren embarked on a 32-year medical career by completing the Program for Surgical Technology at Ochsner Foundation Hospital. In 1997, Lauren received her degree from LSU School of Nursing and launched a 23-year career with St. Tammany Parish Hospital. For the past 14 years, Lauren served with excellence as the Director of the Covington Surgery Center. While excelling in her professional endeavors, Lauren was highly respected amongst her peers and throughout the medical field; however, Lauren’s talents and achievements extended well beyond the workplace. As much as she enjoyed her professional career, Lauren refused to let her work compromise time spent with her family. She loved and cared for her family beyond measure and touched each family member in a special way. Those who benefited most from Lauren’s profound love for life were her husband, children, and grandchildren, who will forever remember her as their LuLu. Always leading the way with her genuine, charismatic smile, Lauren shared her love of life with those around her, and you could never get enough of her. Lauren will leave behind as her legacy the love of life and the values she instilled in her family that are a true testament to her Catholic faith. Lauren will forever be missed, but leaves behind lasting, wonderful memories to those touched by her love and kindness. Lauren has moved on to her eternal resting place in our Father’s Heavenly Kingdom.

Word seem inadequate to express my deep sadness and grief. I will miss my aunt greatly. I will always remember her smile; her positive outlook; and her love and care for family, relatives, and friends. She never forgot anyone's birthday (at least, not anyone in the family) and even sent physical cards via snail mail. I'll miss that. She was the glue that kept the family close after my grandmother passed away. Aunt Lauren was also instrumental in taking the time, several years ago, to find me an excellent doctor who would see me immediately for a major health issue which I found out was related to diabetes that I didn't know I had. However, the one thing I will remember most is that I picked her for my confirmation sponsor. I will always treasure that.

My deepest sympathies and prayers go out to her immediate family, her relatives, and her friends. Know that even though her loss is hard to bear right now, I will remember Aunt Lauren fondly, warmly and with love and smiles.

My deepest sympathies,
Colleen Lartigue

It’s hard to believe that this pain will ever go away. Maybe it won’t totally, but I do know that Lauren will continue to live in your heart, and wherever you go then she will go also. You don’t have to be strong for her. She is someone who understands. I wish that I could be there and give you all a hug (with my mask on), but you know why I can’t. I’m sending you all of
the love and thoughts that I can. I know we live miles apart, but I have never felt that the distance kept us apart. Lauren was an amazing person, and no one could share as much love as she did. She will be missed by so many.
Your cousin,

I am in complete shock here in isolation in NYC.
I can only think of spending my first Thanksgiving with all of you in Metarie and when one of the kids cried Lauren picked em up and said "kids? they're wash and wear" Such a caring mom
As an Irish person, I can only sing Danny Boy for your loss and "sing a sweet Ave for thee"
Lauren you have not left the room.
You are the morning hush we awaken to, the nightingale's song we fall asleep to.... always present
Thank you for being you.

Mallory, Sean, and Griffin, as someone who taught all 3 of you in second grade, I can honestly say that your mom was the top of the top....she loved you all so much and was always so proud of you then and now. She would do anything she could for you all. Every time I saw her out she would always tell me about the 3 of you and your accomplishments.
I am so sorry she is gone, but she will continue to live on through each of you! If you all need anything, please ask...luv u 3!!!!
