She loved her family dearly, and her cats and pups, Melvin and Petey.

Although Vida was known to be a feisty, sassy, and stubborn lady, she was very much-loved and was entertaining up until the very last breath of her life. She will be deeply missed by her family and friends.

She is survived by her daughter, Danielle Gary and partner (Charles "Buck" Huval); grandchild, Charlee Marie Huval; brother, Ted E. Dore (Lori); twin sister, Velma D. Huval (Tommy); sisters, Maureen "Moe" Bearb (Wayne), Flo D. Comb, Millie D. Picard (Larry), Gina D. Dupuis (Ames Pete Jr.), and Iris D. Dore (Randy).

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.

Rev. Ed Degeyter will be the Celebrant.

Gift bearers will be Sydni and Audri Bienvenu. Readers of the Holy Scripture will be Karen Bordelon and Cynthia McSherry. Soloist will be Jeanne Gondron, accompanied by Pat Melancon on organ, and Michael Barny on bagpipes.

Honorary pallbearers will be Gerard Fournet, Dr. Edward Lamperez, Jack Webb, Dr. Burt Bujard, Carol Gravois, Dr. Gerald Halphen. George Broussard, and the St. Peter's College Class of 1951.

Entombment will follow in St. Michael Cemetery, 611 Bridge St., St. Martinville.

Visitation will be at Pellerin Funeral Home in St. Martinville on Friday from 4:00 pm until 9:00 pm, and will continue on Saturday from 8:00 am until 10:15 am. A Rosary, led by the Men's Rosary Group, will be prayed at 7:00 pm on Friday.

Boops was born in St. Martinville, LA on July 26, 1933, in his grandmother's home at the corner of East Hamilton and Main Street, to Harold George Bienvenu, Sr. and Margaret Hunter Bienvenu. The oldest of three children, he attended Our Lady of Mercy elementary school in St. Martinville, was a 1951 graduate of St. Peter's College in New Iberia, then attended LSU for two years. He graduated from Southwestern Louisiana Institute in Lafayette with a Degree in Business Administration.

For 55 years, Boops managed P.A. Bienvenu Insurance Agency, which his grandfather founded in 1903. It was the first insurance agency in St. Martin Parish, and Boops always treated his clients with kindness and compassion.

Mr. Bienvenu is survived by his loving wife, Sylvia Ann Segura Bienvenu; a sister, Catharine Fitch-Killen and husband Dr. Richard Killen, PhD; sister-in-law, Vilma Sanchez Bienvenu; sons Dr. Harold G. Bienvenu III, Edward Bienvenu, and Benjamin Bienvenu and wife Sunni; daughters, Christina "Tina" Bienvenu Dawson, and Cynthia Marie Bienvenu McSherry and husband John; grandsons, Todd Bienvenu, Kyle Bienvenu, and Matt Dawson and wife Catherine; granddaughters, Lise Bienvenu and husband Benoit Matival, Karen Dawson Bordelon and husband Eric, Rebecca Dawson and fiancé Devin Martin, Danielle Bienvenu and fiancé Mahesh Gilbile, Nicole Bienvenu, Tatiana Bienvenu, Sydni Bienvenu, and Audri Bienvenu; and great-grandsons Alex Martin and Luke Bordelon.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Harold George Bienvenu, Sr. and Margaret Catharine Hunter; brother, John Hunter Bienvenu; daughter-in-law, Jennifer Frederick Bienvenu; son-in-law, Brent R. Dawson; and a grandson, Nicholas Jacob Bienvenu.

Mr. Bienvenu was best known as "Boops," the Staunch Scotsman who could stay with an objective, a plan, a wish, or a request to the end and beyond. He was a true and steady friend to all, never forgetting those who had shared his path through life, faithful to the end to all of them.

Boops was a modern-day woodsman, a discoverer of hidden places, of secret animal dwellings and plants that many folks never know about. Even in his last years, he could "talk" to the animals, with hoots to the owls in his back yard that made them fly up to look around for what they seemed to think were other owls. He was a master duck caller who almost never failed to entice the ducks to come in.

As a very young man, he had already discovered most of the secrets of the Atchafalaya Basin and the coastal marshes and brulées, paddling the pirogues he had built for these demanding terrains, and finding game in places most never imagined to look. The family table was always heavily laden with wild game, as common to his family as hamburgers would be to others.

As a star football player, his determination never wavered, as evidenced by his recognition as the 1950 Daily Advertiser All– Star Football Award for the End position on the District Eleven Man Team, and the football scholarship to LSU that he won.

Boops was a member of the famous Tuesday Night Cookout Gang, who met regularly, usually in Longfellow-Evangeline State Park, to cook the game that members had killed and share friendship and tales of catch and capture, each trying to outdo the others' stories.

It would be difficult to find a better storyteller than Boops. He was renowned for his ability to embellish any story line, turning it into a tall tale as his children can vouch for, remembering the nights he told stories of St. George and the Dragon, Prince Valiant, and Sampoose, as well as clever originals they never tired of. He even entertained friends, nurses and caretakers with his vivid tales. He and his wife enjoyed travelling, taking, among other trips, three month-long trips to Europe where they discovered together many hidden places of beauty and wonder. Boops also was an avid snow-skier, taking yearly ski trips to the Rocky Mountains with his wife, children and close friends Johnny, Elaine, Ed and Janie. But most of all, he was a true and steady husband, father and friend. He will be dearly missed.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Boops' memory to Catholic High School, 1301 DeLaSalle Dr., New Iberia, LA 70560.

122 A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:30 am Wednesday, July 22, 2020, at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Rayne, for Gladys Richard Maloz, 92, who passed away Monday, July 20, 2020, at 12:23 am at Acadia General Hospital in Crowley. Father Gary Schexnayder will officiate for the service. The family request visitation from 8 am until 10 am on Wednesday, July 22, 2020 at Gossen Funeral Home. Burial will be in St. Joseph Cemetery #2 in the Mausoleum.

Ms. Gladys was employed at Mervin Kahn in various departments. After many years of service, Ms. Gladys decided to shift her career in another direction, taking on a new profession as a sales clerk at Cliff's Shoe Repair from 1978 until 1990.

When the need for a full-time caretaker for her mom and dad arose, Ms. Gladys moved to Indian Bayou to care for her parents. In the early 90s, her brother James needed care as well; once again, Ms. Gladys answered the call by moving James into the same home as her parents so she could care for them all. After a short battle with cancer, James passed away on February 3, 2004. Shortly thereafter, Ms. Gladys's father, Dallas, began to take a turn for the worse, leading to his passing on January 1, 2001. When Ms. Gladys's own health started to decline, the family decided to admit their mom, Anna, to a long-term care facility in Rayne. Having never learned to drive, Ms. Gladys made many trips to Rayne Guest Home to visit her mom with the assistance of her brother, Gilford. She was a wonderful caretaker of her parents and her brother James. In 2012, Ms. Gladys herself needed long-term care, and she became a resident at what was then known as Rayne Guest House (now called The Ellington) until her passing early Monday morning.

In her younger years, Ms. Gladys was the rock upon whom her brothers and sisters depended for assistance. Ms. Gladys's pride and joy, however, were her son Louis and her four grandchildren. Ms. Glady's sense of humor and the care with which she extended her loved ones was well known and admired within her family.

Born of German parents, she married her childhood friend, classmate and fellow German, Philip, and raised 7 children who were her pride and joy. She was also a loving grandmother of 20 and great grandmother of 14. She always put her family first. She taught them to follow her devotion to the Catholic faith with a special adoration to Mary, our Mother. She started and ended her day with prayer, and made sure her children and grandchildren made the sign of the cross with Holy Water from her font by the door every time they left her home.

She was a firm believer in Catholic schools, and when her children were young, she often volunteered her time and talents at Rayne Catholic. She was an avid Notre Dame football fan and would attend as many games as possible, especially to watch her grandsons play. In her later years, she loved cheering on her Pios while listening to the games on the radio.

She loved collecting antiques from the time she was a young girl and displayed them proudly in her home. She had a story about each item, and especially cherished the ones that were passed down to her from her ancestors.

She was very proud of her German heritage. She was a devoted worker of the Roberts Cove Germanfest and Museum since its inception. Her favorite pastime was completing her genealogy books that included articles and pictures of her ancestors. She was so proud of her large family heritage including her 122 first cousins and could always tell you how everyone was related.

She served as a lifelong member of St. Leo's Catholic Church in Roberts Cove where she was a member of the Ladies Altar Society and Catholic Daughters of America.

Pallbearers will be her grandsons. Honorary pallbearers are her godchildren, Debbie Zaunbrecher Forte and Gretchen Zaunbrecher.
