Not only was Lucille a dedicated wife, mother and business partner, she also was an angel to the state's Foster Care System. Lucille and her husband fostered over 20 children. In 1979, they were honored by the governor by being named Foster Parents of the Year.

Lucille loved her life by loving her family, her God, her community, and countless children who needed a sense of normalcy. Lucille oved her Cajun heritage and was the belle of the dance floor. We are sure she is dancing in heaven with her husband wearing a snappy hat.
