Anna was born December 19, 1939 in Vermilion Parish to the late Clacy Peltier and the late Amy Breaux Peltier, and passed away peacefully Saturday, October 31, 2020 at her granddaughter’s residence surrounded by her loving family. She was 80.

Anna, affectionately known by family and friends as “Big Maw”, was a selfless, giving and compassionate person who always gave of herself to care for others. She worked most of her life in healthcare in the hospitals and nursing homes sitting with patients. Her faith was strong and prayer an everyday part of her life, as she prayed her rosary daily. In her spare time she loved to sit down with a good book, play cards with her friends, or work in her garden. Another favorite pastime of hers was working on the family farm tending to the chickens, geese and other wildlife. Above all, Anna’s greatest joy was the time spent with her family. She leaves a legacy of love and faith that will live on in the hearts of all who knew and loved her.

Those left to cherish her memory are her nine children, Louis “Edward” Gary, Jr., Darrell J. Gary, Robert L Gary (Paula), Clarence J. Gary (Barbara), Rusty J. Gary (Leslie), Miriam A. Duplantis, Cheryl A. LeBlanc (Charlie), Bonnie M. Thibodeaux (Artie) and Connie L. Moreaux (Chris); 21 grandchildren who loved her dearly; Bradley Gary, Ashley Gary, Britlynn Suire, Tracey Lege, Nicholas Gary, Teisha Gerard, Raylyn Lavergne, Jimmy Moreland, Evan Gary, Trey Gary, Bryan Gary, Belinda Bergeron, Christy Collins, Jason Moreaux, Todd Moreaux, Kimberly Moreaux, Savannah Harrell, Donovan Gary, Felicia Landry and Beth Gary; 34 great grandchildren; 7 great great grandchildren; and her brother, Russell Peltier.

Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Louis “T-Neg” Gary, Sr.; her son, Jeffery P. Gary; son-in-law, Jim Duplantis; two grandchildren, Jami Lyn Gary and Brandon Gary; a grandson-in-law, Shane Bergeron; and her brother, Davis “D.L.” Peltier.

Serving as pallbearers are Edward, Jr., Robert, Darrell, Rusty, and Clarence Gary, Tyler Bergeron and Jason Moreaux. Honorary pallbearers are Bradley Gary, Artie Thibodeaux, Chris Moreaux, Donovan Gary and Thomas Collins.

The family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to the staff of Hospice of Acadiana and Acadian Home Care for the care and compassion shown to Anna.
