Lucy Belle Milano Sotile, 91 years old, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, surrounded by her loving family, was called home by her Heavenly Father on April 12. Born in Donaldsonville, LA on May 13, 1927, Lucy Belle was a life-long parishioner of Ascension of Our Lord Catholic Church where she was a member of RENEW Small Faith prayer group. She was also a charter member of the Catholic Daughters of the Americas Chapter 2331. Lucy Belle was a voracious reader, wonderful cook of Italian cuisine, loved fresh flowers, and cherished time spent with her family and friends. One of her greatest pleasures was making things with her hands. Her children enjoyed the many wreaths she made from rose petals and all the crocheted ornaments and angels made as Christmas decorations. Survivors include her sons; Glenn (Gene), Wayne (Mary), Steven (Christine) and daughters; Toni (Peter Ewen), Maria (Michael Jimenez), 12 grandchildren; 17 great grandchildren; brother, Mike Milano (Olga); sisters, Jackie (Irby Robert); and Beverly (Arnold LeBlanc).

Visitation will be on Tuesday, April 16, 2019 at Ascension of our Lord Catholic Church in Donaldsonville, LA beginning at 10:30 AM followed by Christian Mass at 1:00 PM. The family of Lucy Belle would like to express a special thank-you and heartfelt appreciation to her weekly visitors, Charlene and Rose, for their loving care and continuous prayers for the past several years. Please visit to leave expressions of sympathy and condolences. Ourso Funeral Home, Gonzales is in charge of arrangements.

Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same that it ever was.
There is absolute unbroken continuity.
