She was retired for 25 years from Whitney National Bank. She enjoyed knitting and crocheting, painting crafts made by Dad, camping with her family and friends throughout the entire lower 48 United States and Canada, working jigsaw puzzles especially during Tuesday Family Night gatherings each week at her and Dad’s home, traveling the world with her sisters, especially to Medjugorje and the Holy Lands, baking Italian cookies and other holiday delights, setting up her Christmas Village which everyone enjoyed year-round most times, and our Caronna Cracker-Head Christmas celebrations. She was a very devout Catholic and firm in her faith, which she instilled in and shared with her family. She was a founding parishioner of Our Lady of Divine Providence Parish in Metairie. The family would like to thank Father Mike Mitchell, Pastor, for his many visits in her time of need. And they would like to also express gratitude to her heart specialist, Dr. Gregory Tilton, for taking such good care of her for the past 30 years; the doctors and nurses and staff at East Jefferson General Hospital for their care over the years; and most recently, thanks to the staff of Notre Dame Hospice.

Roy, Maria, and Family,

Please accept the prayers and support of all our family during this sad time. Though we never had the pleasure of meeting your mother, we came to know what a wonderful woman she was just by the tales you shared of your weekly family dinners and your camping trips together. Your father and all your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

A beautiful sweet lady, I’ve had the privilege of being around many occasions, her daughter Maria is my best friend, when we went camping once I saw her peel mushrooms , I’d never seen that before. She was waste not want not. So now every time I have mushrooms I think of her. It’s weird how the memory works. But that one , of many memories, will make me think of her and smile. Rest In Peace sweet lady, you have found your heaven now. You will be missed. Love and peace to the family .
