Bridget Vicknair Stephens, a native of Sorrento and resident of Prairieville passed away Thursday, May 30, 2019 at the age of 73. She is preceded in death by her parents, Dolphy and Eva Mae Vicknair and son, Danny J. “Joey” Stephens, Jr. She is survived by her husband of 58 years Danny J. Stephens, Sr.; two daughters, Aledia Sanchez (Chad) , Elizabeth Lee (Louis); son, Dr. Melburn G. Stephens (Sarah); grandchildren, Charles Robert Stephens, Colton Joseph Lee, Cle’ Sanchez, Haley Lee, Caroline Sanchez, Chauncey Stephens, Dylan Stephens, and Garett Stephens; four siblings, Jennifer (Mike Rousseau) Pitre, Jewel (Gabriel) Gautreaux, Yvette (Joe) Templet and Audie (Kim) Vicknair.

Bridget would often say the greatest love of her life was her husband, Danny. They spent their lives together, raising their family. She loved to tell the story of the first time she ever saw Danny in school and her heart fluttered.

Bridget loved to travel, but her happiest times were spent in her kitchen making amazing meals for her family and friends. She loved caring for her plants and watching her butterflies and hummingbirds sitting on her back patio. She was a faithful servant to God. She would help anyone who needed it with a hug, a full heart and a home-cooked meal. Bridget said that when her time came, she would sail away to Heaven like a butterfly.

So sorry for your loss. It is a loss for a lot of us. Bridget will always be remembered, loved, and prayed for by our family. She was such a blessing for our family when our parents were down. Especially our dad. They would have long talks at night. I pray that they will be able to “talk” again in heaven. Deannie

Aledia, Chad, Clé and Caroline~
We love this picture posted of Mrs Bridget and its just the way we will remember her! She was such a loving woman with a joyful big heart and every time we saw her she had a beautiful smile on her face. I will alway cherish the handmade metal OWL keychain she picked up for me, because she remembered how much I loved owls. We most certainly will hold dear the memories and time we were blessed with her presence and certainly will not forget those yummy tamales! We will raise your entire family up in prayers during this difficult time.
