Marie Cavalier Leonard, resident of Pierre Part, passed away on Friday, May 3, 2019. She was 91. She tirelessly and selflessly tended to and nurtured her family all her life. After the passing of her husband 19 ½ years ago, her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren selflessly returned that love by caring for her every need until her passing. Marie enjoyed cooking, traveling, making jewelry, playing Rummy, and especially sewing which she was doing until her passing. Spending time with her family brought her the most joy. She is survived by her daughters, Linda Smith, Judy Hebert (Alton Jr.), Cathy Leonard (Emmitt), Darlene Leonard (Daryl), Tina Cavalier (Lonny), Stacey Dinger (Troy), and “Birdie” Tingle (Shannon); son, Michael Leonard (Stephanie); 15 grandchildren, Tessa Crochet, Angela Kinkle, Andrea Allemond, Tonya Kirby, Brandy Ferguson, Chantel Byars, Misty Callegan, Tyler Cavalier, Shelbey Cooley, Brodie Dinger, Bliss Dinger, Kaylynn Leonard, James Roucher, Jessica Johnson, and Trevor Crochet; 23 great grandchildren; 6 great-great grandchildren; and Mike Pyle, whom she loved as one of her own.

Leonard Jr.; parents, Eno and Azella Aucoin Cavalier; sisters, Edna Rivere (Leo), Elda Rivere (Rudolph), Agnes Domingue (Gilbert), and Hermance Cedotal (Noah); brother, Abner Cavalier; great granddaughter, Teila Rivere; great-great grandson, Kaisen Rivere; and sons in law, Joseph L.”Smitty” Smith and Roland P.
