144 Funeral services will be held Friday, August 14, 2015 at an 11:00 a.m. Mass of Christian Burial in St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church in Lafayette for Bertha T. Lavergne, age 63, Mrs. Joseph Lavergne, the former Bertha Trahan, who passed away Sunday, August 9, 2015 at her residence in Lafayette surrounded by her family and friends.

Interment will be in Calvary Cemetery in Lafayette. The Rev. Gary Schexnayder, pastor of St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church, will officiate at the services.

Mrs. Lavergne was a native of Esther and a resident of Lafayette for most of her life. She was employed for Auto Zone Area Distribution Center for eleven years until becoming disabled. She was a parishioner of St. Peter Roman Catholic Church and St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church where she was a member of the Bonne Mort Society, St. Peter Adoration Chapel since first opening and a suffering associate for the Community of Jesus Crucified. She will be remembered by the phrase "I love you more".

Bertha Trahan Lavergne was indeed a very special lady. She loved God, her husband Jay, and her three beautiful daughters Lana, Wendy and Dana with a fierce passion that only grew with the love that she had for her four grandchildren Colton, Mark, Marissa and Riley. She took great pleasure in her family and treasured every moment that she was able to spend with them. When she was able, Bertha loved cooking which was the source of many family memories. She also spent time caring for her cats and plants which kept her in touch with God's endless powers of creation.

Bertha's faith in God was truly an inspiration. While in the pain and struggles of her illness, she actually spent the majority of her time praying for others that were also ill, struggling with life, or for God's acceptance into heaven of those who have died. Her devout faith comforted her through her many physical challenges, but at times when her pain was unbearable she would become frustrated with her inability to focus on praying for others which was her real goal. Bertha received much inspiration from a healing prayer group led by Father Manny when she was able to attend. Her example of faith and devotion to God could be truly noted in her children and grandchildren from a young age and were easily visible by anyone who came in contact with her or her family.

Bertha's fun and down to earth disposition made her easily approachable (she never met a stranger). She made everyone she met feel comfortable with her warm smile and sincere concern she expressed in her interactions with you. Anyone who knew Bertha knows she was not always serious but instead loved to laugh and enjoyed a good joke. Her smile was infectious and her laughter touched your soul. Though it was hard at times, she still managed to get out a little giggle or a soft smile that left you wondering how she could gather the strength to smile while in such pain or discomfort. That's when you understood how strong and special her faith was and how truly beautiful and genuine her soul was. She fought the good fight!!!

Survivors include her husband of forty-eight years, Joseph D. "Jay" Lavergne of Lafayette; three daughters, Lana L. Johnson and her husband, Barney "Paul", of Denham Springs, Wendy L. Menard and her husband, Brian, of McDonough, GA and Dana L. Domec of Lafayette; four grandchildren, Colton Johnson, Mark Menard, Marissa Menard and Riley Domec; one brother, Rene Trahan, Jr. and his wife, Terri, of Forked Island; one half-sister, Marceline Trahan of Gonzales; and one sister-in-law, Lydia Hebert of Abbeville.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Joseph Rene Trahan, Sr. and the former Elia Roger; two brothers, Joseph Ray Trahan and Joseph Elray Trahan; and one sister, Brenda T. d'Augereau.

Per her requests A Divine Mercy will be prayed at 3:00 p.m. and a Cursillo rosary will be prayed at 7:00 p.m. Thursday in the funeral home.

The family requests that visiting hours be observed from 10:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. Thursday and will continue from 8:00 a.m. until service time on Friday.

Pallbearers will be Brian Menard, Mark Menard, Matthew Trahan, Sammy Trahan, Barney "Paul" Johnson, and Colton Johnson. Honorary pallbearers will be Joseph "Jay" Lavergne, Rena Trahan Jr., Jimmy Lavergne and Marroll Alleman.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to everyone who provided prayers along her entire journey and to all of the healthcare professionals who did their best to make Bertha's five-year journey as comfortable as possible especially Father Manny, Dr. Matthew Mitchell, Yvonne Tarry and Lindsey Thibeaux.

Melancon Funeral Home, Evangeline Memorial Gardens Chapel, 4117 N. University Ave., Carencro, (337) 896-3232, is in charge of arrangements.
