Rev. Garrett McIntyre will officiate at the Mass of Christian Burial. Reader will be Michelle LeBlanc. Gift bearers will be Danielle Spath, Kristen Hamilton, Chloe Hamilton, and Ava Serrette.

Interment will follow at St. Bernard Cemetery No. 2 in Breaux Bridge.

Larry was an exceptional and brilliant husband, father, brother & friend. As a devoted husband, he cherished spending time with his beloved wife Sandy whom he was married to for 56 years. In his wallet, he still carried pictures from the time they were dating. Their later years were spent volunteering for the Tour de Teche boat race and ham radio field day events. His passionate hobby of building antennas enabled individuals to communicate from across the globe. His wife Sandy and his son Andre' both have their Ham Radio Operators License.

By profession, Larry was an electrical engineer with two Masters Degrees in Engineering and Computer Science from USL. His contributions to Texas Instruments resulted in several patents. He retired from University Medical Center in Lafayette, Louisiana where he enjoyed working in IT & networking.

Larry's gift from God was selfless serving and he loved helping others. He enjoyed the challenge of troubleshooting crashed computers. He would work, day and night to identify the problem and solve it. He was known to piece together parts and pieces to build computers and gift them to individuals who otherwise couldn't afford one. On a Sunday afternoon, it was not unlike him to pick up someone in need and bring them home to dine at the family table, strangers and friends alike.

He was a great father to four children. He was loving yet firm, always guiding his children in the right direction. He would forgive when they needed forgiveness. He consistently led by example through his actions and decisions. If his children strayed, he would redirect and counsel them like a shepherd guides his flock. Any time spent with Larry was memorable because time spent with him was intentional.

His grandchildren were the apple of his eye and they brought him so much joy. He made it to as many of their events as he could. His years as their "Paw-Paw" softened him in the most beautiful and selfless way. Hearing of their accomplishments (big or small) was his delight.
He also loved hanging out with extended family and cousins. Easter was one of his favorite holidays. His grandchildren would gather in one location for the biggest Easter egg hunt in town. His favorite part was to the long grass cut in trails for the kids to enjoy.

Most importantly, Larry loved the church. He gave of himself freely until the day he met his savior. As a young boy, he was an altar boy at St Bernard Church. During his child rearing years, he was a devoted Sunday school teacher. Most currently he was a lector, a Eucharistic Minister, bible study participant and was active in the RCIA program at St. Bernard. He instilled in his family a strong spiritual foundation with Christ as its center.

It brings his family great comfort to know that he is resting eternally with Christ his Savior. He will be greatly missed. We look forward to meeting him again one day in heaven. If there is a lawn to be mowed or a computer to be fixed in heaven, Larry is your guy.

He is survived by his loving wife, Sandra Mire LeBlanc; daughters, Nicole Anne Savoie (Ken) and Susan Marie Morrogh (Miguel); sons, Paul Andre LeBlanc and John Daniel LeBlanc; brother, Dave C. LeBlanc (Michelle R.); sister, Viva LeBlanc; and his grandchildren, Kristen Hamilton, Chloe Hamilton, Micah Morrogh, Danielle Spath, Maddox Morrogh, Ava Gayle Serrette, Kreg Savoie and spouse Candra, Kris Savoie, and Kent Savoie.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Sydney J. and Lenore Blanchard LeBlanc.

Pallbearers will be Paul LeBlanc, John LeBlanc, Dave C. LeBlanc, Micah Morrogh, Maddox Morrogh, Ken Savoie, and Miguel Morrogh.

Yongue; three children: Anne Elizabeth, Daniel and John; two grandchildren: John Kainer and Mike Kainer; one greatgrandchild Eric Perrine; her parents, Virginia and Daniel Olivier; and two sisters, Charlotte Billeaud and Dorothy Mills. She is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

Virginia graduated from Lafayette High School in 1940. She attended SLI for a few semesters and later completed her studies and received her B.S. in Business Administration from USL in 1970. She married Dr. Ernest M. Yongue in 1942 and began her beautiful journey. She lovingly raised 10 children and true to her nature, she became involved in their activities. She would say, "I was a "den" Mom for my boy scouts; "pool" Mom for my divers and swimmers; "dance" Mom for the dancers and a "Mom Volunteer" for all my students". She managed her husband and daughter's medical practices and the family's personal affairs and finances.

Throughout her life, Virginia remained devout in the Catholic faith and freely contributed her time to the church community and catholic school. Her involvement with St. Bernard Church gave her the opportunity to be a Lecturer and Eucharistic Minister. She was on the St. Bernard Church Council at the time the Borel Center was designed and built. She was also very involved in the reopening of the St. Bernard Elementary School and served on the St. Bernard School Foundation Board. She began each day with quiet prayer (Ernest noted that over the years she would read passages from the Bible and probably had completed it several times in addition to reading the multiple religious books that filled her library). She went to early Mass before bringing Holy Communion and visiting with the patients at Gary Memorial or Lafayette General Hospitals, homebound parishioners, and her sick friends. She devoted many hours to the Prison Ministry. She was a charter member of the Court of St. Paul of Catholic Daughters of the Americas and Joie de Vivre, a Theresian group, and a member of St. Bernard Altar Society. She participated in the Bishop's Charity Ball and served as past president of the SERRA International Club.

Always interested in her community, Virginia was involved in a wide range of activities. In Breaux Bridge, she served as past president of the Greater Breaux Bridge Area Chamber of Commerce and the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival Association, and served as Alderman on the Breaux Bridge City Council. She served as Publicity Chair for special events held in Breaux Bridge: Crawfish Festival, Bayou Parade and 4th of July celebrations. Virginia chaired the campaign to pay for the statue of Scholastique Picou Breaux, founder of Breaux Bridge. She was a member of the Breaux Bridge Historical Society. In the Lafayette area she was the first woman to serve on the board of the Southwest Mardi Gras Association. She always noted that she was very fortunate to spend more than 40 years as a member of Les Vingt-Quatre because this experience provided her with great learning opportunities when they restored the Alexandre Mouton House. She served on the USL Foundation Board for 15 years, serving as vice-president for two years. She served on the Acadiana Symphony Board. She was very active in the Lafayette Parish Medical Auxiliary and served on the committee that established "La Maison du Docteur" at the Acadian Village. She was also very involved with the following organizations: Lafayette Chamber of Commerce, Southwest LA Rehabilitation Center, Project RX, helping needy people afford necessary medications, Acadiana Opera Society, Fine Arts Foundation, Friends of Humanities, Lafayette Natural History Museum and Planetarium, Grief Center, Vita Program and Faith House. She was an organizer and charter member of the Lafayette Historical Society and Regional Attakapas Historical Society. She was also a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

She was the recipient of The Lafayette Civic Cup in 1997; The Distinguished Community Service Award from the Breaux Bridge Area Chamber of Commerce in 1998; The Franciscan Spirit Award sponsored by Our Lady of Lourdes in 2007; The Tiffany Award in appreciation of her outstanding support in the Community in 2008; The Bishop Service Award for Ministry and Service to the Diocese of Lafayette and St. Bernard Church in 2009; and The Leader in Philanthropy Award for St. Martin Parish sponsored by Community Foundation of Acadiana in 2014.

Virginia enjoyed learning, entertaining, dancing, baking, gardening, reading, needlepointing, playing bridge, genealogy and traveling. She also enjoyed spending time with her extended family and friends. Her inspiration was her mother who had a warm and giving nature and who taught Virginia to give back. That is how she lived her life.

Virginia's family wishes to thank the "Angels": Linda Galet, Dianne Williams, Lanette Williams, Linda Dugas, Norma Broussard and Latasha Williams who lovingly cared for her during her time of need as well as Dr. Warren J. Degatur.

Pallbearers will be James Kainer, Paul Kainer, James Yongue, Jr., Eric Yongue, Shane Yongue, and Rick Yongue.

132 Although the timeframe was sooner than those who loved him would have hoped, Robert "Woody" Woodburn achieved his highest goal on October 18, 2019 when he drew his final breath on Earth and moved with love and wonder into the arms of his Heavenly Father, the One he sought to understand and know more fully, every moment of his life.

Most of his career, he was fortunate to work in an industry that he loved. He spent his working life providing food and services to the oil and gas industry, with the last 25 years at Doerle's Food Services. Woody's ability to build strong relationships with so many led him to his last role as the Senior Vice President of Doerle's Food Service Energy and Marine Division.

Woody was an incredible family man and devout Christian. What he enjoyed most in life was cooking and sharing laughs with the many family and friends that he loved and cherished so dearly. His ever-present smile and endless jokes were gravitating to everyone around him and his cooking was second to none. He also enjoyed golfing, hunting and fishing and the companionships that were made in the outdoors. Woody was an avid LSU Tigers fan and T.A.F. member who supported the purple and gold throughout all seasons. Most of all, Woody was a man of God who lived every day serving others as a true Samaritan and role model to all who knew him.

As a devout Catholic, Woody served his church faithfully in many ways, some of which include serving as Lector, Altar Server, Usher, and Extraordinary Minister of Communion. Additionally, he was a member of the Bereavement Committee.

Survivors include his wife of 43 years, Barbara Doerle Woodburn; son, Chad Allen Woodburn of Broussard; daughter, Ashley Woodburn Boudreaux and husband Joey of Youngsville; grandchildren, Ali Woodburn, Ryker Fontenot; brothers, Donald Woodburn and wife Joyce of Foley, Alabama; Patrick Woodburn of New Iberia; sisters, Chris Massett and husband Dr. Edward of Slidell; Phyllis Woodburn of Lafayette; sister-in-law, Carolyn Doerle Schumacher and husband Dr. William "Kip" Schumacher; brother-in-laws, Paul A.

133 Billy James Serrette, a native of Breaux Bridge and longtime resident of St. Martinville, passed away peacefully Wednesday September 18, 2019 at his residence surrounded by his loving family. He was 62.

Billy was born August 2, 1957 to the late Anatole James Serrette and the late Ida Mae McGee Serrette. In his early years Billy lived in Australia with his family where he worked on a ranch taming horses. After moving back to the states, he joined the United States Marines and served his country during the Vietnam War. Billy worked most of his life in the oilfield as a Seismic Consultant, a career that brought him too many destinations throughout the world. No matter the destination, Billy would leave a testament of love to his wife Paula by carving "Billy loves Paula" in a tree many that can still be seen today.

Outside of his work, Billy had several pastimes. He was a true outdoorsman that enjoyed being out in nature. Whether it was hunting or fishing with family, tending to his garden or chickens, or just relaxing on the patio, Billy enjoyed that time. Those that knew Billy, knew of his passion for music and playing guitar. He played in a band in his earlier years, but mostly played for enjoyment and relaxation, and to entertain his family. Above all, his greatest achievement was his marriage to his best friend Paula, raising a beautiful family of three children and three granddaughters that he spoiled lovingly. Billy leaves a legacy of love that will live on in the hearts of all who knew and loved him. Rest well Billy. Until we meet again.

He is survived by his wife and best friend of 41 years, Paula Citty Serrette; his three children, Crystal Serrette Gauthier and husband Harvey, Kenneth Serrette and Calvin Serrette and wife Sarah; his three granddaughters, whom he adored, Tana Gauthier, Amelie Serrette and Isabelle Serrette; his sisters and brothers, Linda Serrette, Laura Hebert, Michael Serrette and Mitchell Guidry; and his stepmother, Lorraine Serrette.

Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother, Wayne Guidry.
It was Billy's wish that his body be donated and studied for the advancement of medical research. Therefore, his family will have a Celebration of Life Gathering on Saturday September 28, 2019 at Evangeline Funeral Home of St. Martinville from 9:00 am until 11:00 am. A reception will be held afterward for everyone to enjoy and continue sharing memories of Billy.
