OBITUARY

Mary Ann Sanchez

January 6, 1940October 28, 2019

Mary Ann was born on January 6, 1940 and fought a long battle with Alzheimer’s, but she made sure she made it to her husband’s 84th birthday. The Lord watched her struggling and she was tired, so He brought her home to be by His side. She received her angel wings at 5:42 am on October 28, 2019, after passing peacefully in her sleep. She was 79. As she fought her battle, her loving husband was by her side 24\7 unless he went to the doctor or store. Her daughter Amanda and granddaughter Marianne Medine was there to help with changing and everything else that had to be done. She was a loving wife to Norman Sanchez, Sr. and were married for 63 years. They lived and raised their family in Brusly St. Martin. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She is also survived by her children, Iva Mae Hebert (Andrew), Norman Sanchez Jr. (Mary), Terry Sanchez (Chantel), Hilary Sanchez, Yvonne Sanchez, Amanda Foy (Jacob), Juliette Tew (Brent); 23 grandchildren; 27 great grandchildren; and Rocky her Chihuahua. She was preceded in death by her parents, Noah and Iva Mae Cedotal; her mother’s parents who raised her since birth; granddaughter; father in law and mother in law; and numerous other family members. A visitation will be held on Wednesday, October 30, 2019 at Ourso Funeral Home, Donaldsonville from 5 pm to 9 pm.
