Louise Boudreaux Albert, a beautiful soul with a heart of gold, passed away at the golden age of 100, just two months shy of her 101st birthday on Saturday July 18, 2020 at Consolata Home.

Louise was born September 13, 1919 in Iberia Parish to the late Felix Boudreaux and Elia Derouen Boudreaux and was one of five children. In her early years, she worked outside the home in various jobs, but took on the most important role she could ask for....being a wife and mother. And did she ever excel at everything she did. Her children bragged on how great of a cook and baker she was. Hands down, she baked the best pecan cakes, gooey cookies and fruit cakes, and without a doubt the ultimate stuffed crabs anywhere. Amazingly, she was still baking up until her 97th birthday and made sure that her family and many friends received those goodies.

When not baking, she found joy in taking care of her yard and cut and edged her own grass. Some of her other pastimes were crocheting and sewing. Above all, her love of God and family was greatest to her. She leaves a legacy of faith, friendship and compassion that will live on in the hearts of those that loved her so dearly. Rest well Louise for you have earned your heavenly reward.

Louise is survived by her children, Oliver Albert, Jr., Rita Joyce Albert Toucheque Henry, Sandra Albert Boudreaux and Perry Albert (Sandra); 13 grandchildren, Cody Albert, Faith Hixson, Mary Broussard, Joseph Toucheque, Jr., Annick Barras, Linda Vice, Sarah Thompson, Christine Jones, Angela Bergeron, Tiffany Buteaux, Nicole Boudreaux, Tyra Short and Dylan Albert; 24 great grandchildren; 15 great great grandchildren; and one great great great grandchild (six beautiful generations) and her brother Johnny Paul Boudreaux.

Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Oliver Albert, Sr.; a daughter-in-law, Patsy Albert; 3 sons-in-law, Joseph Toucheque, Albert Henry and Robert "Bobby" Boudreaux; a grandson, Oliver Jude Albert; a great great granddaughter, Desiree Rose Trahan; and her siblings, Preston Boudreaux, Sr., Ella Lavergne and Adam "JC" Boudreaux.

Funeral services celebrating the life of Louise will be held 2:00 pm on Thursday July 23, 2020 at Evangeline Funeral Home with Fr. Garret Savoie officiating. Visiting hours will be held that morning from 10:00 am until time of services, with the Mens Rosary Group leading the rosary at 1:00 pm.

Louise Albert was the greatest grandmother her sweet voice and gentle touch always encouraged me to be my best at anything I wanted to accomplish. She taught me how to crochet afghans. I have made many afghans in my life but her afghans are in perfect condition compared to my own. Life was simple then, I remember waking up to the soft sounds of breakfast being made to playing outside all day. Every day was an adventure from chasing the chickens to playing hid and seek in the hay barn. We would pick pecans, snap peas and pluck chickens, collect chicken eggs from the coop. Cut the oranges (do not pull) from the trees. At the end of the day all my adventure of the day became the greatest meal on the super table that Mamom had cooked for us. Later in life as I became an adult I loved the times we sat around Mamom's kitchen table talking with her. She would always have deserts ready to eat anytime I would go visit. Mamom taught me many things in life but the best advice I ever received was from her demeanor of kindness to always put my best self forward and ask for nothing in return.

Louise Albert also know as Mom mom was born September 13, 1919

She was born 2nd out of 5 children with one sibling, Johnny Boudreaux, still living.
She married Oliver Albert Sr February 12, 1938
She had 4 children,
•Oliver Jr
•Rita Joyce
•Sandra Ann
•Perry Paul
14 Grand kids
24 Great grand kids
16 Great great grand kids
1 Great great great grand child

Mom mom was a simple woman of few words but had a big heart.
She was full of wisdom, recipes, and life’s lessons.
She was a great person who added so much to every life she touched.
Her family had six generations and that is something to be proud of. She loved us all.

She was able to witness things that most of us can only read about. Mom-mom was able to watch the world evolve from a time with no electricity to not being able to live without it and from horse drawn buggy’s to gasoline powered automobiles. She grew up in a time where FM/AM radio was state of the art technology but witnessed dramatic changes that allowed her to communicate with friends and family using her flip phone. Her stories about the “old” days were always interesting to listen to.

She loved planting her flowers and tending her gardens. It just seemed like everything she touched prospered!

When she went to visit someone she never showed up empty handed. She always had food or flowers in hand to share with them.

She was a woman who believed in God, she prayed and went to church. She prayed the rosary daily. I remember her teaching me my prayers, from then on when I would spend the night with her we would say them together.

Mom mom’s house is where cousins became friends, and mischief got us all in trouble. From sneaking on top the hay stack in the barn to sliding on her wooden floors in our socks till some one broke the window!

Her home in the country is where I learned to shuck corn, snap beans, cut okra to feeding cows, pigs, rabbits and chickens, unfortunately learned about home perms too. I learned about hard work and living off the land which is something that children don’t learn about these days, and I’m thankful for her teaching me these things.
She shaped who I am. She shaped who my children are. She influenced all of us so greatly.
I will always love you and save a special corner of my heart to keep you with me.
And I know we will miss you every day of our lives.
I found a poem and I believe this explains how she would want us to go on without her.
You can shed tears that she is gone
or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back
or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left.
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her and only that she’s gone
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
or you can do what she’d want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

Gary and I were so thrilled when we had family visit when we were in Tampa. In 1972, Aunt Louise and Uncle Oliver came with Mama and Daddy and Peter and we all went to Busch Gardens.

So many memories.......
Aunt Louise would always welcome you into her home where a cup of coffee was quickly offered. Then you had to have some of whatever she was cooking that day. She was a fantastic cook! We would visit for awhile and when it was time to leave, there was always fruitcake or a jar or two of fig preserves to take with you.
She and I had a love for sewing and she would always want to see pictures of my latest projects. So for her 99th birthday I made her a quilt. I’m so glad I was able to share a part of me with her.
She was so loved and we will miss her.

So many memories at Mamom's! All "the kids" sleeping over; after school cartoons and snacks (the fried biscuits, them blueberry dumplings, that pecan cake!). I could go on and on.... Easter of course too! She was definitely a matriarch of the family whom was loved by all.
