Bonnie Fontenot, 86, beloved Mother, was called to her eternal resting place on May 3, 2021.  She entered this world on July 20, 1934 in Vidrine, LA, born to Gilbert and Lula Fontenot.  Bonnie enjoyed spending time with her family, reading and traveling.  She never missed a single sporting event for her nine children.  She was a long-time member of the Catholic Daughters and an active member of Our Lady Queen of All Saints Catholic Church.

To know Bonnie was to know a truly beautiful soul.  This little woman was strong in heart, a guiding light and council, and matriarch to her immediate family for over 70 years.  Her love, laughter, and empathy for all will be dearly missed.

Bonnie is survived by her five daughters, Ramona Hardee (Greg), Rebecca Fontenot, Carla Dupuis (Greg), Lisa Hansen (Ron) and Jeri Fontenot Olivas; four sons, Richard “Ricky” Fontenot (Faith), Kirk Fontenot (Julie), Keith Fontenot (Renee) and Kent Fontenot (Nina); 20 grandchildren; 25 great-grandchildren; and one sister, Sherry Vidrine (Larry).

She is preceded in death by her husband of 44 years, Jerry D. “Rab” Fontenot; parents, Gilbert and Lula Vidrine Fontenot; and brothers, Darnell Fontenot and Dowell Fontenot.

At the request of the family, a visitation will be held on Wednesday, May 5, 2021 beginning at 4:00 PM and continuing until 8:00 PM.  A rosary will be prayed in her honor on Wednesday evening at 5:30 PM. Visitation will resume on Thursday, May 6, 2021 from 8:00 AM until time of service.
