She always wore a smile and never met a stranger. Being the natural caregiver that she was she enjoyed her job working for the ARC of Acadiana in the residential program at a group home, and referred to all of her clients as her “little friends”. As a hobby, she loved playing pool and was a member of the APA which she always thrived to do her best.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Peggy Broussard Dubois.

The family wishes to send a heartfelt Thank You to two special angels, Judy and Phillip Boudeloche, Sr. for their hospitality, and for taking care of and loving Patricia as she was their own daughter. And to Troy Boudeloche for never leaving her side and caring for her daily. Lastly to Hospice of Acadiana and the staff of Abbeville General Hospital for their care shown to Patricia.

I always remember Trish has a very quiet girl when we were growing up. She was very loving caring and understanding and I remember the times when we used to sit at the front porch of her house and just talk about things when we were kids. I also took it as a privilege to be able to bless her as an ordained deacon before she died it was such a blessing for me to be able to touch and bless someone like Trish. May her soul rest in peace and go to her Heavenly Father what we all will be one day
