Edmay Guidry

Cecilia - A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 1:30 p.m., on Saturday, June 25, 2011, at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Cecilia, for Edmay LeBlanc Guidry, 101, who passed away on Wednesday, June 22, 2011 at Lafayette General Medical Center. Fr. Michael Delcambre will officiate at the funeral Mass. Scriptures will be read by Taylor Menard and Tessie Jean Batiste. Gift Bearers will be Marie Cormier, June Menard, and Angie Guidry. Interment will follow at St. Joseph Cemetery in Cecilia. Edmay was born on April 6, 1910 in Arnaudville, Louisiana, to the union of Lucius and Ida Hardy LeBlanc. She married the love of her life, Stephen Guidry. Together, 'Mom and Pop' owned and operated the Stephen Guidry General Merchandise Country Store and Produce Shed, on the Anse Broussard Highway, for over 40 years. They had one of the first telephones in the area and helped many of their neighbors through hard times. Raised as a child to be a devout and faithful Catholic, she first learned her prayers in French. It brought her great joy when asked to recite the 'Our Father' in French at any family gathering or private prayer time. Mom will forever be remembered with that warm, beautiful smile on her face, her 'joie de la vie' or joy of life, her egg sandwiches, macaroni and cheese, and her greasy gravy. She loved and lived for her family - they were her life. She lived a simple, comfortable, and happy life, surrounded by family and many friends, and died a quiet and peaceful death with her family at her side. Mom will be sadly missed, but long remembered for the nurturing and endless love she gave to her family until the very end. Survivors include her son, Steve (George Stephen, Jr.) Guidry and his wife, Johanna, of Breaux Bridge; one daughter, Elsie G. Dugas of Breaux Bridge; 7 grandchildren, Rowdy J. Guidry of Florida, Angela Guidry of Breaux Bridge, Ada Jayne Guidry Clark ;of Louisville, ;Kentucky, June Ellen Menard, Kim Menard, Almarie Cormier, all of Breaux Bridge, and Troy Menard of Hammond; 11 great grandchildren, 10 great-great grandchildren, and one-on-the-way; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, Stephen Guidry; her parents, Lucius and Ida Hardy LeBlanc; three brothers, Abel, Clesma, and Dalex LeBlanc; four sisters, Edna Cormier, Gladys Roy, Edith Landry, and Julie Roy; and two sons-in-law, Percy Menard and Hector Dugas. The family requests that visiting hours be observed from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. on Friday, and continue on Saturday at 9 a.m. until 1:15 p.m. A rosary will be recited by Deacon Ken Soignier at 7 p.m. on Friday. Pallbearers will be Jayne Guidry Clark, Troy Menard, Mykey Menard, Kim Menard, Craig Menard, and Jordan Allemond. Honorary pallbearers will be Dud Cormier, Grant Menard, Benjamin Menard, Jack Menard, and Nicholas Romero. Pellerin Funeral Home of Cecilia is in charge of arrangements.

Elsie and Steve and Families Mom was a one of a kind woman and she was loved for just who she was. I can still hear her say she was going get a hamburger and fries that is what I'm hungry for today. What a woman. God has His hands full in heaven He will have to answer that QUESTION WHY that we are not suppose to ask. God Bless You All and our prayers and thoughts are with you at this time.
