A resident and native of New Iberia, Daisy Boutte Connell was born on February 5, 1925 to the late Sidney P. Boutte, Sr. and Louise Daisy Mary Broussard Boutte. She was a talented seamstress and made most of her own clothing (always pinks and blues!). She and her husband, Everette moved from Rhode Island to New Iberia in 1980, and built a home on Highway 90. As a couple, they participated in the Senior Olympics and won 27 medals for badminton. Daisy retired as an LPN from Iberia Medical Center, where she worked in Delivery and Recovery. She will be deeply missed.
Mrs. Connell is survived by one brother, Elton (Gloria) Boutte; and numerous nieces and nephews, including Katherine "Kitty" Ruiz (husband Cordell) of New Iberia.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to all of her caregivers, Sandra Bourque, Deja Sohm, Racheal Washington, Carlotta Armelin, Patricia Derouen, Morgan Waldmann, and Pat Hypolite; and the entire staff of Consolata Nursing Home for extraordinary care and compassion.
