On Monday, May 30, 2022, Georgia Pratt Angelle, passed away at the age of 98.  Georgia was born on June 18, 1923, in Waukegan, Illinois to  Charles Pratt, Sr. and Naomi Victor Pratt. Her stepfather was William Rosa. 

 

She met the love of her life, Jessie Angelle of Cecilia,  La., in  Oakland, California, where Jessie was stationed in the Army.   They fell in love, were joined in marriage, moved to Cecilia, and raised 4 children, Jean, Kathy, Terry, and Sharon.

 

Georgia worked as a Tax Assistant for the IRS and retired after 30 years of service. After retirement,  she and Jessie moved to their 2nd home in Butte La Rose. Family, extended family, and friends of the family frequented their regular suppers for holidays, birthdays, every weekend gatherings, and LSU games.  There was always a house full. The regular spread of various Cajun delectables was offered, as well as dishes she had learned to make in Illinois and California, with everyone eagerly awaiting her coveted cookies, pies made with her perfect pie crusts and cakes that she learned to personally decorate.

 

Georgia had many interests and talents. She was a choir member at First Baptist Church where she was also the volunteer bookkeeper. As a bookkeeper, accuracy was important to her, and this carried through in all facets of her life.  She was a gifted seamstress,  and she perfectly sewed most of the children's clothes as well as her work clothes. She also learned to knit and loved showing off her colorful knitted socks. After she retired, she took up quilting, in which she meticulously and accurately joined the corners of all of the squares, and then hand sewed her perfectly placed stitches. She continued quilting up until a month before she passed away. In total, she has quilted at least 40 quilts. Her quilts became a coveted item at the Courtyards where she was remarkably still able to keep her own apartment, and she generously gifted the aides with quilts who lovingly cared for her.

 

Georgia is preceded in death by her father, Charles Pratt, Sr., her mother, Naomi Victor Pratt, her brother, Charles Pratt, Jr., two sisters, Beatrice Johnson and Dorothy Volmer, her husband, Jessie, her daughter Jean, and her son, Terry.

 

She is survived by her daughters, Kathy Regan,  Sharon Richard, sons-in-law, Chuck Crooks (Jean) and Burton Richard (Sharon), and daughter-in-law, Anne Angelle (Terry). Her grandchildren are Roxanne Crooks, Michael Crooks, Greg Crooks,  Scott Crooks, Stacey Drewery, Kyle Richard (Misty), John Angelle (Claire), Lane Richard, Andrew Angelle, Stephen Regan (Jessica), Christy Regan Hendricks (Michael), and numerous great-grandchildren. 

 

The family extends deep felt gratitude to Pellerin's Funeral Home and for the loving care provided by the staff at the Courtyards, the medical staff at Ochsner LGMC Hospital and the staff at Hospice Care at Calcutta House in Lafayette, La.
