89558 Whitney Matthieu, Jr. was born on November 7, 1923, to Mr. Whitney Matthieu, Sr. and Mrs. Isabelle Boutin Matthieu.

At a young age, Whitney worked hard as a sharecropper's son, with no modern tools of today's world but rather using his hands, a shovel and a hoe. At the appropriate age, Whitney, sometimes referred to as June or Frenchie, was suddenly sent to Burma, during World War II, by the Army. His primary duties were to shoe horses and mules for equipment needed for the war.

Whitney met his beautiful wife, Rita, at a local club, "T-Maurice," in Bosco, LA. They had a daughter, Peggy Sue, of which Whitney had several nicknames for, one being "Poon." Whitney and Rita were married for fifty-five years until Rita's life was taken by the dreadful disease of Alzheimer's.

Whitney was passionate about the taste of good food, he deeply adored his wife's gumbo, jambalaya and all of her other specialties. His love of the outdoors was endless, one of his favorite hobbies was growing vegetables. He had amazing gardens of fresh homegrown tomatoes, "unlike any other," cucumbers, parsley, cabbage, snap beans, etc. His gardens were truly picturesque. Whitney enjoyed occasional trail ride excursions and training his personal horses. He also taught his daughter to train for barrel racing, cutting, pole dodging and western pleasure. His love of the outdoors continued with tending to his cattle and horses, hunting doves, snipes, quail, and fishing with his wife. Whitney also enjoyed his recliner during napping time and while watching TV. Whitney was employed with NesBitt & Co., then with Sunbeam Bakery. He founded a roofing business and later retired as a painter for the school board.

He worked hard all of his life, along side his wife. Above all, during obstacles in his life he maintained true integrity and honor. He loved his life, his wife and his daughter. My Hero-My Popee.

89560 Who Am I?

I am a true kid at heart! I love racing my four-wheeler at the dunes, barbecuing and having a good time with family and friends watching the Saint's games on Sundays, and working in the yard and keep it looking nice.  I enjoyed relaxing and building projects in my shop/"Man Cave".  And of course, I always made time to watch a good action movie.

My life-long career as a Senior Design Draftsman brought out my talent and my temper, especially because I took pride in doing my best.

God knew that after 25 years of battling heart disease I was ready to go home, and I knew that He was calling me.  My legacy will continue in the wonderful memories I have made with my wife, two daughters, and five grandchildren.

89561 Who was Martin Harkins Nanney?
by Lynn E. Fussell

I raised my first question about Martin Harkins Nanney in 1928 while staying with my paternal grandmother. I asked her who her father was and she replied she did not know. All she knew was that
her father had abandoned the family when she was a little girl. She told me that she had been born in Guntown, Mississippi. As I grew up I remember my father referring to Uncle John Nanney and Uncle
Mark Nanney and Aunt Sally Couch, Aunt Fannie Moore and Aunt Martha Butler. I didn't know any of these relatives but I may have met some of them on some occasion. I do remember Joe and Will Couch, my father's first cousins. I met them on several occasions; Joe was a meat cutter and Will, a preacher, who performed my father's third marriage. I had recollections of my father talking about Spurgeon Nanney, another of his cousins. Although all these individuals lived in Madison County, Tennessee, the family was not close knit so there was probably little or no reason to discuss Martin Harkins.

After retiring in 1987 I began to get serious about my genealogy research. I had enough clues that I could began tracking the family. From the 1850 census records for Itawamba County, Mississippi,
I was able to start putting the family together. I determined that Martin Harkins had married Mary Ann McVay in 1850 and they were living with her parents, Hugh and Martha Ann McVay.

In the 1860 census six of the eight children were identified, I already knew about Martha and my grandmother, Nettie Caroline both having been born after the 1860 census. The 1850 census named Alabama as the birthplace for both Martin Harkins and Mary Ann. I was beginning to learn who my g-grandfather was.

I had reached a point in my research that I needed to talk to some of my second cousins back in Madison County, Tennessee. I was living in Richardson, Texas. On my trip to Madison County, I contacted Spurgeon Nanney, Jr. He was not able to give me a lot of information but suggested that I contact his cousin, Elaine Spencer, who lived in Okalona, Mississippi. Elaine was contacted by phone and I told her I was researching the Nanney line and would like to discuss the family with her since I understood from Spurgeon she was the most knowledgeable about the family. This was my first contact with Elaine. She invited me down. Since I was driving I stopped to visit with her on my return trip to Richardson.

We began discussing the Nanney. genealogy. She had done considerable research on the line for her DAR membership. I asked her had she heard the story about how our g-grandfather had abandoned the family in Mississippi? She said , "Let me show you something!" She then produced a copy of a note.

(See below.) This offered a reason for Martin abandoning the family; There was no clue as to who may have been responsible for the note, i. e., the vigilantes, the KKK or some other group. She stated that Martin had been a constable in Itawamba County.

She explained that this note had been found in a box of papers in the attic of her father's house, Walter Greer Nanney after he died in 1982. She said the papers belonged to Walter's father, John
Howard. In addition to this note she suppled me with copies of Bible records and records for Martin's military service in the CSA . These documents will be discussed later.

After my visit with Elaine I came away with lots of family data which had been documented. I knew that Martin Harkins was born on 13 May 1828 in Lauderdale County, Alabama, the son of Uriah
Holland Nanney and Mary McCarty. Mary Ann was born 1 Oct 1822 in Lawrence County, Alabama, the daughter of Hugh McVay and Martha McAdory. Uriah Nanney migrated to Mississippi about 1836. He was listed in the 1840 census for Itawamba County. Hugh McVay was not found in the 1840 census for either Mississippi or Alabama. He was in Mississippi for the 1850 census. Both families were farmers.

About nine months before Martin married he was received into the Mantachie First Baptist Church "by experience" on 24 July 1849.

89602 WILLIAM ROLLIN YENAWINE. Farming has been the business of William Rollin Yenawine. He has given to that vocation the same qualities of enterprise and energy which a successful merchant gives to his store or a manufacturer to his factory. His success has followed as a matter of course. Mr. Yenawine is now the owner of "Brook Side" farm in Ashland Township of Riley County. It is said that the really busy man has more leisure than the one who pursues every undertaking with frantic haste and wastes his efforts on small accomplishment. This is perhaps the reason why Mr. Yenawine, while strictly a farmer and a successful one at that, found time to devote himself to public affairs. He has long been one of the active republicans of Riley county. For four years he held the office of county commissioner, and his creditable administration of that office brought him election as county treasurer. He filled that post four years and met all the most sanguine expectations of his many friends. After leaving the county treasuryship he again devoted his time to farming and stock raising, but in 1916 his friends urged him to become a candidate for the republican nomination in the August primaries for the office of county clerk. He won the election and took office January 8, 1917.

Mr. Yenawine is almost a native son of Kansas. He was born in Hancock County, Illinois, June 27, 1869. When less than two years of age his parents, Seth J. and Anna E. (Moore) Yenawine, moved to Riley County, locating on a farm in Ashland township. That was in 1870. The parents had their home there for many years, but a few years ago removed to the city of Manhattan, where they now reside. Seth Yenawine is actively engaged in the real estate and loan business.

Reared in Riley County on a farm, William R. Yenawine attended the common schools and also spent two years in the Kansas State Agricultural College and a similar period in Baker University. Though liberally educated, he found his most congenial task on the farm, and is one of the men who have helped to raise the general standard of agriculture in this section of the state. As a young man he taught one term in the rural schools. Fraternally he is a Master Mason, and also belongs to the Modern Woodmen of America and the Fraternal Aid. He is a member of the Methodist church.

In 1897 he married Miss Sallie A. Dix. Mrs. Yenawine was born in Riley county, Kansas, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. O. T. Dix, who came to Kansas from Illinois about 1869, locating in Ashland township, where they have since continued to reside. They represent one of the early farming families of the county. Mr. and Mrs. Yenawine have one son, Chester E. The family reside in Manhattan, and are active social members of that community.

89623 With a heavy heart, we say good-bye to Willie Andre Broussard, who peacefully passed away on June 22, 2020. For over 45 years, he served as a public servant in Vermilion Parish, with great dedication and compassion as a high school math teacher and administrator for the Village of Maurice.

Born in Maurice, LA on July 2, 1931, he was the 8th child of 10. He was the son of the late Jean Camille Broussard and the former Ada Hebert. He was best known as a high school math teacher. Over the years, many of his students have shared with us and with him how "Mr Willie's" guidance and dedication was instrumental in choosing or advancing their careers. He was always so honored to hear their accolades.

Mr. Willie "Willie B" was widely known for his French song, "Brasse don l'Cush Cush." He wrote it to reflect the times after World War II in South Louisiana where many Acadians migrated to South Texas looking for work. He recorded the original 45 rpm record and it has been re-recorded by numerous artists since then, and is sung at Dwyer's Cafe each Wednesday morning by a local Cajun language preservation group, la Table Francais. He also wrote and recorded two Christmas songs, "Santa in Bayou Land" and "Put Christ Back into Christmas". For his contributions to the French music culture, he was presented with the Heritage Award by the Cajun French Music Association in 2000 as well as inducted into the Acadian Museum Living Legends Program in 2014.

He led a colorful and varied life. As a youth, he was fortunate enough to work on both of the Hadacol caravans, where he operated the sound truck announcing to the crowds the soon-to-arrive miracle of the Hadacol elixir. The caravan traveled the entire country, thus affording him the opportunity to meet many of the great singers and actors of that era. He performed with the Abbey Players in Abbeville. He worked as a French-speaking disc jockey on KROF radio station in Abbeville. He was asked by many to sing at weddings and funerals. He was a servant of God as a lector, as well as an auctioneer, inventor, draftsman, master craftsman, visionary, and could fix anything with a coat hanger.

Mr. Willie graduated from Maurice High School and went on to earn a Master's in Mathematics from The University of Southwestern Louisiana (USL). He taught Mathematics and Industrial Arts for 30 years at Abbeville High, Maurice High and North Vermilion High. In the mid-60s, he served as the president of the Vermilion Parish Teachers Association. In addition to teaching, he coached high school baseball and basketball where he was instrumental in bringing high school baseball back to the Vermilion Parish area. Through his perseverance, he spearheaded the creation of the Maurice High School baseball team, which at the time, was the first and only team in the parish to participate in high school baseball. Subsequently, the surrounding schools followed suit in developing their own programs.

Mr. Willie was always interested in the development of the youth. When many kids were left out of the local youth baseball program, he created and coached the Maurice Volunteers Little League Team, which participated in the Bayou Boys Little League program, thus affording many local youths the opportunity to play baseball.

Before and after he retired from teaching, he served as administrator for the Village of Maurice where he promoted and oversaw many improvements to the village such as the municipal water and sewer system and the promotion/development of the Maurice Park.

Mr. Willie married Joyce Love Hebert in 1956 and they celebrated 54 years of marriage. He was very proud of his Cajun heritage and has passed that passion on to his seven children, 18 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

He is survived by his sisters, Alice Broussard Schroeder and Faye Broussard Prejean; his children, Gwendolyn "Gabby" Broussard, M. Garrett Broussard, Bryan Broussard (Twyla), Damian Broussard (Jennifer), Diana Broussard Eppard (Larry), Phyllis A. "Annie" Broussard Kananack (Tabatt Laven) and Rexie Broussard (Kathy); grandchildren, Brandt Broussard (Stacy), Heidi Broussard Ledoux (Mike), Callie Broussard Ford (Fred), Jordan Broussard, Chloe Broussard Hanson (Jeff), Andre Broussard, Gage Broussard, Rhece Broussard, Elizabeth Eppard Westling (Chad), Stephanie Eppard, Jack Eppard, Lily Eppard, Travis Kananack, Quinn Kananack, Dashiell Kananack, Chase Kananack, Austin Broussard and Morgan Broussard; and his great-grandchildren, Jacque, Jackson, Henry, Cade and Trevor.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 50 years, Joyce Love Hebert Broussard; his parents, Jean Camille and Ada Broussard; brothers, Edward, Lastie, Wallace, John and Walter Broussard; sisters, Doris Broussard Dartez and Gladys Broussard Trahan.

Whether Mr. Willie, aka Coach Willie or Willie B., was starting the wave at Dodgers Stadium, leading the crowd in song at the Kentucky Derby or teaching himself sign language to communicate with a new employee with the Village, he was always sharing his love for his fellow man and his overall Joie de vivre.

The family requests that visiting hours be observed at Delhomme Funeral Home on Thursday, June 25, 2020, from 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM. A Rosary will be recited at 7:00 PM on Thursday evening in the funeral home. Visiting hours will continue Friday, June 26, 2020 from 8:00 AM until the time of service.

Pallbearers will be Garrett Broussard, Bryan Broussard, Damian Broussard, Rex Broussard, Larry Eppard and Tab Laven.

89624 With both sadness and joy in the hope of the Resurrection, her family announces the passing from earth to eternal life of Mrs. Verda Mae Huckaby Siffert, on Monday, October 19, 2015, at the age of 82. Born May 23, 1933, Mrs. Siffert was a life-long resident of Eunice. A funeral Mass will take place at 10 am on Friday, October 23 at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in Eunice, with Fr. William Schambough, pastor of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Milton, officiating. Burial will follow in Mt. Calvary Cemetery in Eunice.

She was preceded in death by her devoted husband, Herschell Siffert, her parents, Alton and Evora Huckaby, her stepmother, Eulalie Huckaby, her siblings Betty LeCoq, James Huckaby, Kathleen Briscoe and Alton "Tony'' Huckaby, and her daughter-in-law Tammy Thevis Siffert.

She is survived by her children: Mary Siffert Balleza, Linda (Charles) Hulme, John (Juanita) Siffert, James (Sandra) Siffert, Dolores (David) Coffey, Robert Siffert, Margaret Siffert, Paul (Cindy) Siffert and Chris Siffert, 16 grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren, and 2 more on the way.

She is also survived by her sisters, Patsy Chatman, and Becky (Craig) Miller, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Jeff McGee, Kevin Morgan, and Preston ''Willie'' Richard are very dear friends who have become part of our extended family.

After raising her family, Verda worked at WalMart and retired at age 70, to spend more time with her growing number of grand and great-grandchildren. Her relationship with every grand and great-grandchild was built on the formula of Food plus Family equals Love, which inspired the recent compilation of family recipes in a Siffert family cook book. Throughout her life, Verda was a voracious reader who ended every day by reading until she fell asleep. Years ago, she enjoyed making items for and working in the Country Store at the annual St. Edmund Spring Fair. Verda was a weekly Eucharistic adorer, until her health declined, and participated in a weekly Monday morning Rosary group.

Verda and Herschell valued a good Catholic education. They worked and sacrificed to ensure that all of their children were prepared to enter the work force or college after high school graduation from St. Edmund. Their shared Catholic faith, strong work ethic, and value system formed the foundation for the adult each child became.

The family extends their deep appreciation to Pelican Pointe Healthcare and Rehabilitation and its staff; Community Hospice; Ms. Shanlonder, Ms. Rosetta, Ms. Nelda, Ms. Merlie, Ms. Ann, and Ms. Jeanette, who provided daily comfort and reassurance to Verda that she was never alone. The family also extends heartfelt gratitude to Coby and Kessie Thomas for bringing Verda the Eucharist and for their presence and prayerful support.

Pallbearers honored to serve are Ethan James Siffert, Jeffery Paul McGee, Matthew Paul Guillory, Neal Craig Miller, Kevin Jacques Siffert and Morgan Paul Siffert.

Visitation will take place at Ardoin's Funeral Home in Eunice, from 2pm-9pm on Thursday, October 22, with a rosary led by Deacon Gary Gaudin at 7pm. Visitation will continue on Friday, October 23, from 8am until the time of the funeral.

89635 With heavy hearts, we announce that Cheryl Agnes "Kitty" LeBlanc, 73, passed away on Monday morning, February 3, 2020, at Lafayette General Hospital. In keeping with her wishes, she will simply have a private graveside service officiated by Fr. Andre Metrejean.

Born in Port Arthur, Texas, Kitty lived most of her life in the Gross Isle area near Abbeville. She was a devoted wife, mother, and aunt who enjoyed cooking and spending time with (and helping) family and friends. She also looked forward to monthly lunch dates with her classmates. A talented and experienced seamstress, she sewed in different capacities in the retail industry and, in recent years, ran her own alteration service. Always interested in promoting the city of Erath, she used her creative skills and talents to complete several "town" projects. She designed a flag for the Town of Erath and personally sewed it over a period of many years before it was officially dedicated in 1996. She also designed the original sign that hung over the Acadian Museum.

While her 1999 Centennial Celebration mural depicting a 33 cents United States Postal Stamp is still displayed at Erath City Hall, her painted mural of the old Erath water tower (and the list of names honoring the hurricane victims who died when the tower collapsed in Hurricane Hilda) was displayed along with other local artists' murals for many years on another downtown building before the building was sold and refurbished. A poem that Kitty wrote about Erath was once featured on t-shirts and postcards that were distributed through her place of business at the time. She was a member of the Erath 4th of July Association. Kitty also worked with Abbeville's Giant Omelette Celebration by making the Chevaliers' hats for many years.

Kitty is survived by her husband of 55 years, Jude Leotard LeBlanc, and three sons: Quince LeBlanc of New Iberia; Chris LeBlanc of Abbeville; and Nathan LeBlanc and his wife, Shana, of Abbeville; as well as three grandchildren, Brittney Howell and her husband, Richard; Griffin LeBlanc, and Pierce LeBlanc, and two great grandchildren, Sawyer Howell and Madelyn Howell. She is also survived by her brother, Adam M. Toups and his wife, Frances; a sister-in-law, Kathy Toups; and several nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents Adam and Myrtice Toups; a brother, Davie Toups; and a sister, Phyllis Toups.

89636 With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Olan Andrus Veronie, age 78, on Friday, January 8, 2021 at home surrounded by family. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Augustine Catholic Church in Basile on Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. Celebrant will be Father Brian Taylor. Viewing for the immediate family will also be St. Augustine Catholic Church on Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at 9 a.m., followed by public visitation from 10 a.m. until time of service. A rosary will be recited at 12 noon. Rite of Committal will be at St. Joseph Catholic Church Cemetery in Iota, LA immediately following the ceremony.

Olan was born on February 8, 1942 to Horace Louis and Isabelle LeJeune Veronie. He was raised in Tepetate, LA and attended school in Basile until he graduated from Basile High School in May 1960. He married his high school sweetheart, the love of his life, his honey, his dance partner, Betty Jeanne Ardoin on July 23, 1960. They made their home in Tepetate where he farmed, and they raised five children. His nickname was "Japon," and as an avid sportsman, he hunted and took great pride in providing food on the table— squirrel, deer, duck, and doves. His favorite meals were always wild meat, but also included catfish, garfish, turtle, and crawfish which he farmed. As a past president and member of the Big H Hunting Club, he prided himself as one of the master cooks, his specialty being catfish couvillion. His love of the land led him to do business in the fur industry, buying and selling hides of muskrat, nutria, mink, and raccoon which earned another nickname—  "Trapper."

In later years, when the economy devastated small farming business, he and his sister owned and operated Trapper's Bar & Grill in Tepetate. This country watering hole became iconic for worldwide travelers looking for the real Louisiana lifestyle, especially Mardi Gras. Olan and Betty were honored with recognition and dedication to the Basile Mardi Gras and enthusiastically looked forward to the Basile, as well as Tee Mamou Krewe and many visitors for the Fat Tuesday festivities each year. Olan was also honored by the Basile Chapter of Friends Supporting Friends organization. He and Betty felt strongly about giving back to the community which had given so much to them over the years.

Olan was a lifelong parishioner of St. Augustine Catholic Church and a member of the Knights of Columbus. Olan was also an avid sports fan, having played high school football as a Basile Bearcat. As their biggest fan, he enthusiastically supported his grandchildren, who played music, sports, and showed livestock. He was fiercely loyal to the New Orleans Saints and LSU football teams. He fondly reminisced about his experience visiting Death Valley. Olan and Betty were exceptional dancers and loved Cajun French music. In their younger years, they frequented the Main St. Bar and the Four Corners Bar, not only enjoying the music but also the company of friends. Cajun French music could always be heard in the house and on the patio, every day, all day.

He is survived by his sweetheart of 60 years, Betty Jeanne Ardoin of Tepetate; children, Vicki Little and husband Brent of Grand Lake, John Veronie and wife Crystal of Alexandria, Shara Dawn Baker and husband Wade of Basile, James Veronie of Basile, and Barry Veronie of Basile. Along with ten grandchildren— Ashlen Baker Pousson, Baylee Baker, Kyle Little, Javen Little, Blair Little, Jacob Veronie, Noah Veronie, Elijah Veronie, Mikala Veronie, and Elizabeth Veronie, and two great grandchildren— Emelia and Jack Pousson. All his grandchildren were truly a constant source of pride. He is also survived by a sister, Brenda Miller of Basile.

89648 World War II veteran, public servant, and devoted parishioner of Our Lady fo Perpetual Help Catholic Church, Lorcey Joseph Sonnier has passed away at the age of 91, on Friday, December 18, 2015 at 8:59 PM at his residence.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 2:00 PM on Monday, December 21, 2015 in Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, Leroy, LA for Mr. Sonnier. Reverend Johnathan Janise, Pastor of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, will be Celebrant of the Mass and will conduct the funeral services.

Interment will take place in Our Lady of Perpetual Help Cemetery, Leroy, LA

Born on May 2, 1924 to parents in the little farming community of Leroy, LA; he will learn the trade of farming that will eventually lead him , at the age of 13, to become the main provider for his family upon the sudden death of his father in 1937. His early ascension to manhood will prepare him for the next stage of life.

During his 18th year, as with many others, he will be drafted into the military to serve his country during World War II on February 12, 1943. Upon completion of basic training, he finally learned his fate would be in serving in the Army Air Force as a Tail Gunner on a B-17 stationed out of Cambridge England. He became a part of the 91st bomb group, 322nd squadron. "Frenchie", as his crewmates fondly called him, was assigned to the crew of the newly commissioned B-17 which they applicable named the "Ack-Ack-Annie". After serving 30 mission flights over Europe and Germany, he received the Distinguished Flying Cross, Air medal with Oak leaf clusters among other medals for service. He then returned to the states to serve out his tour as an instructor. He and other servicemen who flew on B-17 bombers were sent to Montana to help in fighting a fire with local firemen when word reached them that the War was finally over. On October 4, 1945 he was officially honorable discharged and returned back to Leroy to continue where he left off as a rice, cotton, and cattle farmer.

Lorcey Sonnier will then meet and marry his wife, Annie Breaux, in 1948 and the two will be together for 61 years raising three girls on the family land in Leroy. Sadly one of the Lorcey's greatest honors from the war was bestowed upon him just a few years after Annie's passing in November 2009. On June 28, 2012 the country of France sent Francois Delattre, the Ambassador of France to the United States, to bestow France's highest distinction, the title of Chevalier de la legion d'honneur to Lorcey. It is France's highest award and one of the most coveted in the world. Napoleon Bonaparte created the award to acknowledge services rendered to France by persons of great merit and accomplishments.

His service to the community came in many forms. As a deputy with the Vermilion Parish Sheriff office in the form of a dispatcher and later transporting veterans and seniors to charity and veterans hospitals all over the state for more than 15 years. He was also a member of the American Legion of Kaplan and the VFW in Ridge.

He also served his church, Our Lady of Perpetual help, as an usher for 50 years; cemetery manager for 23 years; Eucharistic Minister; and a member of the local chapter of the Knights of Columbus 8059 for which he obtained the rank of Grand Knight. For his outstanding dedication to his community and parish, on January 16, 2009, the Catholic Diocese of Lafayette bestowed upon him the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Award.

He is survived by his three daughters, Glenda Sonnier of Leroy, Sue Sonnier of Leroy, and Bonnie Bergeron and husband Larry of Abbeville; seven grandchildren, Carmen Mosing, Jamie Matte, Monty Bergeron and wife Abbie, Jonathon Standridge and his wife Kim, Jill Standridge Dubois and husband Joshua, , Drake Meaux and wife Carissa, and Jardin Meaux; ten great-grandchildren, Seth, Trey, Chloe, Chase, Jayden, Gracin, and Coleman, Gracin, Parker Draylon and Cealy.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his beloved wife, Annie Breaux Sonnier; one son, Joseph Sonnier; two grandsons-in-law, Tim Mosing and Scotty Matte; his sister, Anite Sonnier Duhon.

The family requests that visiting hours be observed on Monday, December 21, 2015 from 9:00 am until time of services. A Rosary will be recited Monday at 11:00 am in the funeral home.

Pallbearers will be grandsons, nephews and honor guards. Honorary Pallbearers will be Larry Bergeron, Jamie Matte, Monty Bergeron, Johathon Standridge, Jill Dubois, Drake Meaux, Jardin Meaux, Seth matte, and Trey Matte.
