Kerry Badeaux Strawn

October 8, 1961August 29, 2020

Kerry Badeaux Strawn, a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and dear friend passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of Saturday, August 29, 2020 at Ochsner Hospital in New Orleans. She was 58.

Kerry was born to the late Julius Badeaux and the late Ethel Meyers Badeaux on October 8, 1961 and was one of eight children. She could best be described as a person who lived a simple life and enjoyed every day to its fullest. As well as being a homemaker, she worked in various jobs to care for her family. Most recently she was working at Boomerangs in Destrahan, and previously worked with convenience stores, and managed the Bait Shop at Spanish Lake.

She loved cooking for her family, and they all came running to enjoy a great meal. When asked what was the best meal that Kerry cooked, her children all answered "Everything". Kerry also found relaxation and peace in fishing and crabbing. She could have a cold beer in one hand, a cigarette in the other hand, and hold her pole with her foot and never miss a bite on the line.

Kerry will be missed dearly, but we rejoice in her reunion with her son, Brett, whom she grieved for and missed, and all of her family gone before her. Rest well and until we meet again.

Survivors include her husband, Patrick Strawn; her children, Brody Chevalon (Victoria), Morgan Romero, Ahnaya Courville; step-children, Christopher Strawn (Aikiko), Jacob Strawn; her grandchildren, Avery Chevalon, Aubreigh Chevalon, Addix Turn, and one grandchild expected; a step-grandson, Aiden Strawn; her brothers and sisters, Cagal Badeaux, Cornel Badeaux, Eva B. Menard (Ronald), Oladee Badeaux (Byron Hill), Trenda Badeaux and Karen Adams; and her faithful dog, Buddy.

Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her son, Brett Castille, and her sister, Donna Johnson.

A gathering of family and friends will be held Thursday, September 3, 2020 at Evangeline Funeral Home from 4:00 pm until 9:00 pm, with the Men's Rosary Group leading the Rosary at 7:00 pm. Private graveside services will be held at a later date and Kerry will be laid to rest with her son Brett at Holy Family Cemetery.
