I was 15 years old and competing for Jr. Miss Iberia. Aunt Patsy said I needed my ears pierced to “complete my look” so she proceeded to freeze my lobes with ice and stuck that needle through them. I never felt a thing! She whispered to me that is why I won!🤣 She and Brother came every Sunday when my hubby was diagnosed with ALS to visit and discuss LSU Football ( of course). She always brought homemade cookies that we so enjoyed . Loved her zest for life, hard work ethic, never complained. I will miss her so much. So many things I could share. RIP! Until we meet again✝️

One of the sweetest, most hard working ladies I know. She and Joe lived next door to our parents and you couldn't ask for better neighbors. She was so nice.

My sincere condolences to all family members.
