The first time I met Momma Temme, I was 15 years old. New to a community, her twin daughters brought me to their home like a stray. Marsha took me in as a daughter from the first day I met her. 30 years of cookouts, birthday celebration at the casinos, Christmas parties, and Mardi Gras celebrations, we had lots of laughter and made amazing memories. Words can never express how much she’ll be miss. Spread your angel wings momma Temme. I love you.

The first year I really new Marsha was the year she was our Queen in 1986. Marsha always had a smile on her face it was contagious, it put you in a good mood. Marsha did my costume the year I was Emblem of the Mardi Gras Society that we are both members. It was so much fun go shopping for the material with her and some of my closest friends. Afterwards we all ate at Mary Mahoney’s because we all needed a little pick me up (Wine) of course and we laughed and talked about what good year it would be especially since Marsha made the costume. Marsha was a lovely person. I don’t know whose going to adjust my costume now , Marsha Rest In Peace with our Lord and Savior. You will be greatly missed.

I love Marsha, there are so many memories and fun times we all had together, we especially had fun at the pool party at Kay and Larry’s with all of us trying to get on the big float.Marsha fixed many of my Mardi Gras costumes and made many for my hubby and me. She also made my OOP emblem costume, it was so pretty and she always wanted to make sure I was pleased with everything she did. We also had so much fun cruising with them and making Salsa and enjoying Margaritas in Mexico.” What happens on the cruise stays on the cruise.” I already miss her sweet,caring way. Fly high Marsha😘

Marsha and I talked in the doctor’s office and had a chance to share some memories. We were in the same room for awhile, she and I had the honor of being a Queen and she always spoke to me with a smile. I’m proud to have known her for so many years. She will be missed by a lot of people especially the ones in Mardi Gras. You now are resting in peace with our Heavenly Father. Love Marilyn Moore and husband Jeff.
