There was an error in the obituary. Ms. Ann left behind 8 grandchildren, 21 greatgrandchildren and 14 greatgreat grandchildren. She was a very loving motherinlaw. She had a wonderful smile and a great sense of humor. I am thankful to have known her and I miss her already

My condolences to the family. Your mothers picture takes me back to the early fifties when my mother Malou and I would visit her aunts and cousins Oconners and Lafleurs in Mamou. We lived in the country and we always looked forward to visiting family in Mamou.
