Elizabeth was born on February 8, 1932, in Saint Martinville. Elizabeth found joy and contentment in simple pleasures. She was an avid card player and could often be found gathering with friends and family for spirited games that brought laughter and cherished memories. Her culinary skills were second to none; she had a knack for creating delectable dishes that left everyone craving for more. Elizabeth's passion for cooking brought people together and served as a centerpiece for countless family gatherings.

Television became another one of Elizabeth's cherished pastimes. She delighted in watching soap operas, game shows and WWE wrestling, captivated by the drama and excitement they offered. The sound of her laughter echoed through the house whenever a contestant won big or when an unexpected twist unfolded in a daytime drama.

Elizabeth had a creative spirit that thrived in quieter moments. Crocheting was one of her favorite activities; her nimble fingers wove intricate patterns into beautiful blankets and garments that she gifted to loved ones throughout the years. This talent served as a reflection of her nurturing nature - she found joy in wrapping those she cared about in warmth and comfort.

Above all else, Elizabeth adored spending time with her grandchildren. Their laughter filled her heart with boundless happiness, and she treasured every moment they spent together. 

Her legacy will forever live on in the hearts of everyone who had the privilege of knowing her kind soul. Elizabeth's gentle touch will be dearly missed, but her spirit will guide and inspire us in the years to come.

She is survived by her sons, Kevin Perrodin (Marie), Randy Perrodin, Henry Perrodin, Dwight Perrodin and Jerry Perrodin (Shelia); daughters, Freda Lewis (Carey), Tina Franciso (Johnny) and Lesley Robertson (Patrick); sister, Sara Benoit; 17 grandchildren and 32 great grandchildren; a host nieces, nephews, cousins, family and friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Adam and Lena Wiltz; husband, Ferdinand Perodin; son, Steve Perodin, Sr.; brothers, Merlin Wiltz and Wilfred Wiltz; sister, Inez Bertholet; and a great grandson, Zabrian Perrodin.
