Virgie was also a longtime parishioner of Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church where she sang in the church funeral choir, and was a member of the St. Anne’s Altar Society. She was also active in many clubs and organizations that include the Good Sam Club (lifetime member), Delcambre Bon-Temps Sams, Delcambre American Legion Auxiliary, Women of Woodcraft, St. Vincent De Paul Society, VFW Auxiliary, and the Les Dames De Mecredi Coffee Club.

She leaves behind many fond memories that will forever be cherished by all who knew and loved her.

Survivors include her daughters, Linda Delcambre of Morgan City, Arlene Menard and husband Curt of Delcambre, and Tessie Dugas and husband Clint of Henry; four grandchildren, Mandy Luquette and husband Raywood Luquette, II, Brandon Menard, Dustin Dugas, Cody Dugas and fiancé Kelsey Morvant; five great grandchildren, Gabriel Menard, Kailey Armond, Joshua Perrin, Emily Luquette and Carter Perrin; and her longtime feline companion, Cuddles.

Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband Julius Delcambre, and her brother, Ellis Bourque.

To Arlene and Family, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Mrs Virgie. She was such a sweet lady and I enjoyed talking with her when she came to the office when I was in Abbeville. You all have another angel watching over you and keep all the memories you shared with her in your hearts and you can get through each day.
