“Muz” as she was known to all. Was born in New Orleans to the late Robbly, and Laura Fremin. As a young girl she would walk from Tchoupitoulas Street to Canal Street for her electric guitar lessons. She and her parents moved to New Iberia when she was 9. At 12 she was a carhop at Pelican Creamery. At 16 she went to work for the Department of Revenue. She then became the Office manager at Iberia Office Supply, A top World Book Sales Associate, and an Iberia Parish School Bus driver.
Muz was a Social Butterfly. She loved people, she could strike up a conversation with strangers and walk away as lifelong friends, in many parts of the world. Muz’s school bus driving days were some of her favorite memories. Her love for her bus children were immeasurable. Even 30 years later, some would call her for advice or to confide in. Her grand and great grand children would sit and be entertained with her many stories and songs. She and her late husband Frank Hoover traveled the country and abroad. Their travels would sometimes include her grandchildren Chris and Laura. She has only one sibling, Leona, some of their time spent together as children were trips to the ice cream parlor and going to the park. She loved her time with her closet friends Jeanette, Joyce, Nickie, and Janel taking many trips to the beach. Her Pokeno buddies were dear to her heart. Some of Chris’ memories were sneaking to the kitchen, stealing pickles, their trips, and the trip to Mexico where his cousin got locked in the bathroom/jail cell. Laura’s favorite memory, is baking, scaring her, their trips, and just loving on her. Hunter’s is spending time with her, swimming, and all the holidays they shared. Kami loved to see her dance. Steven loved her story telling and singing as well. Joy loved her laugh.
Muz’s passing leaves a huge hole in our hearts, and lives. The memory of our time with her will life forever. Our only comfort is knowing she is with her loved ones gone before her, and she is in the arms of Jesus.
She is survived by her daughter, Anita Lantier (Don) of New Iberia; sister, Leona Huval (Rickey) of Youngsville; three grandchildren, Chris Lantier, Laura Earles (Steven), and Hunter Rouly (Michelle); eight great grandchildren, Logan Lantier, Gage Dooley, Mason Lantier, Hudsyn Dooley, Hensley Dooley, Layla Earles, Hunter Dooley, and Kessler Dooley.
