Maude was a fun loving person through out her life and never seemed to age even in her nineties . Her faith, her family and her friends remained her top priority even as she faced her final days. She was happiest when she was bowling, dancing, eating out, going to casinos and parades and playing Po-ke-no with her friends. She was an excellent cook and spoiled us with amazing feasts for every and any occasions and baked tons of goodies every Christmas even at 93.

Her zest for life and steady strength, even through her worst times inspired us and all who met her. We feel fortunate that God allowed her to stay with us for 94 years.

We will forever miss her as we now must go on without her but know she is in the loving arms of Jesus. The family would like to extend our thanks to her caregivers Ms. Earline and Ms. Ivy and everyone at Notre Dame Hospice.

Relatives and friend are invited to attend a Mass of Christian Burial was held Nov. 13 at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church in Norco. Interment followed at St. Charles Borromeo Cemetery in Destrehan.
