Gloria was a faith healer, better known as a “traiteur” a treater, who specialized in treating those with sunstrokes and cured many who came to her for healing. Her love for her family and friends was unconditional, and she especially loved spending time with her grandchildren. Gloria had a kind and sweet personality and would make anyone feel at home - no one was ever a stranger. She was always insistent to anyone she met that she be called, “Mom”.
Gloria was a member of the VFW Auxiliary for many years. As a pastime, she enjoyed baking, sewing, keeping up her beautiful yard, and making rosaries. She will be deeply missed by her family and many friends.
She is survived by her husband, Curtis LaGrange; daughter, Denise Andries (Tim); son, James "Jim" LaGrange (Delores); stepson, Kim David; stepdaughter, Lana Phillips; sisters, Betty Roger and Debbie Hidalgo; six grandchildren, Chase LaGrand (Tiffine), Kali Castille (Kaynon), Holly Billiot (Nathaniel), T.J. Andries (Nyla), Stacy Bush (Matt) and Tiffanie Bush; and her great grandchildren, Cooper LeGrand, Alana Champagne, and Izzy Castille. She was preceded in death by her parents, Jessie and Pearl Babineaux Hidalgo.
