May was a lifelong resident of Breaux Bridge. May lived a life dedicated to serving others and her faith. She was known for her unwavering commitment as an Eucharistic Minster for the Homebound and Nursing Home, bringing solace and compassion to those in need. A devout member of the rosary group, May found comfort and strength in prayer. For over 34 years, she attended Eucharistic Adoration hour, deepening her connection to her spirituality.

Beyond her spiritual pursuits, May found joy in simple pleasures. She had a talent for quilting, creating beautiful pieces that will remain as a testament to her creativity and skill. Ironing became not just a chore but a meditative practice for May, a way to show care and attention to the smallest details.
