Glo was a parishioner of St. Louis Chapel. She began working at the “original” Laura’s Café during the weekday and house cleaning for the Summers’ family on Saturdays and later was employed at Martin Mills for several years up until its closure. While in retirement, she decided to return to a less stressful work environment as a “Foster Grandparent” with the Head Start/School Preparedness program sponsored by the Lafayette Council on Aging and the Corporate for National Service/Senior Service Corps located in Lafayette, Louisiana, where she enjoyed mentoring the youngsters of the area.

 

Our mother loved spending time with her loved ones, even if it was giving them a piece of her mind, but knowing when you needed her that big heart of hers would “always” offer help to anyone in need. She loved crossword puzzles and talking on the phone. When asked of her son, Wayne, “How’s your mother doing?”; he would respond “If the phone is busy, then she’s doing fine!”

 

Lastly, she loved cooking and going all out to ensure everyone had a plate of her delicious food. It brought her joy to feed friends and families.

 

She is survived by her son, A. Wayne Wiltz (Maudry); daughter, Delann Louise Williams (Robert); sister, Mary Louise Hebert; brother, Phillip Melvin Wiltz; grandchildren, Christopher Wiltz, Chante' Wiltz, Anastacia Boulden (Matthew), Jordan Williams (Liliana) and Joshua Mayfield (Leisa); great-grandchildren, Ziah Williams, Marcus Boulden, Malik Boulden, Aniya Mayfield, Joshua Mayfield, Jr., Tristan Mayfield and Aaliyah Hernandez; godchildren, Thaddeus Potier, Rachael Landry, Carla Wiltz, and Norma Jean Williams; and a host of nieces and nephews.

 

She was preceded in death by her daughter, Leslie Wiltz; parents, Joseph Alphen Wiltz, Jr. and Bertha Ledet Wiltz; and brothers, Joseph A. Wiltz, Jr., Paul Frey Wiltz, Francis "Ray" Wiltz, Sr., Joseph Lucien Wiltz, Wallace J. "Slim" Wiltz, and Antoine C. "Snow" Wiltz.

 

Pallbearers will be Elijah Landry, Thaddeus Potier, Greg Potier, Jordan Williams, Joshua Mayfield, and Dwayne Wiltz.

 

Honorary pallbearers will be A. Wayne Wiltz, Phillip Melvin Wiltz, Clifford Wiltz, Christopher Wiltz, Matthew Boulden, and Robert Williams.
