Shirley Toups Touchard passed away on Friday, May 31, 2019 at the age of 81. She was the beloved wife of the late Bruno Louis Touchard, Sr. for over 64 years. Mother of Karen Brown (David), Karl Touchard (Cheri), Kittie Blanchard (Rennis), and Bruno Touchard Jr. (Monique) Grandmother of Carlton Rojas Jr. (Brooke), David Brown II (Alicia), Jason Brown (Ashlen), Effie Phillips (Clifton), Joel Touchard, Blaine Touchard, Randy Dufrene (Jessica), Roger Dufrene (Amber), and Bryce Touchard.

Sister of Katherine, Janice, Sherry, and Steve, as well as the late Rose, Dora, Helen, Alice, Frank, Lawrence, and Joseph.

She was a dedicated homemaker and mother. She was known for her Gumbo and Fried Chicken, as well as pretty much anything else she set out to cook. If you left her table hungry, it was over her objection and your own fault. Her passion for cooking extended to the joy she got from her collection of cookbooks.
