Melissa Ann Courville, a beloved member of the community, passed away on September 10, 2023, leaving behind a legacy of love and joy. Born in Lafayette on December 30, 1970, Melissa brought warmth and happiness to the lives of everyone she encountered.

Melissa dedicated an incredible 30 years of her life with the Arc of St. Martin, where she made a significant impact. Her passion for helping others shone through every interaction, as she brought comfort and love to those there.  Melissa's unwavering commitment to her time with the Arc was truly admirable and served as an inspiration to many.

Those who were fortunate enough to know Melissa will always cherish the memories they shared with her. One of her fondest moments was going to the mailbox with her momma and sitting on the swing together, basking in each other's company. The love they shared was evident in these simple yet meaningful moments.

Melissa's aide, Jessica Broussard, was her best friend. Their bond was unbreakable, and Jessica's dedication to Melissa's wellbeing is a testament to their profound friendship. Melissa had a remarkable ability to touch the lives of others with small gestures of kindness; she would often give stickers to show her love for everyone around her.

Generous, loving, and adorned with an infectious smile that could light up even the darkest room - this is how Melissa will be remembered by all who had the privilege of knowing her. Her joy knew no bounds as she loved singing, dancing, coloring, and playing games. Watching movies like "Grease I and II," "Cinderella," "Pretty in Pink," among countless others brought immeasurable delight into Melissa's life.

Melissa had a heart full of love for everyone she encountered; there were no strangers in her world. She radiated kindness and compassion wherever she went, leaving a lasting impression on all who had the pleasure of crossing her path. Her genuine love for others was truly an extraordinary quality that will forever be cherished and admired.

In her free time, Melissa loved to dance. The way she moved with grace and passion was mesmerizing to those who watched. Her love for dancing not only brought her joy but also inspired those around her to embrace self-expression and live life to the fullest.

Melissa Ann Courville's departure has left a void in the lives of many, but the memories she created will continue to bring comfort and solace. She taught us the importance of compassion, kindness, and cherishing every moment we have with our loved ones.

 She is survived by her parents,  Alpha and Mary Courville, Jr; brother, Dennis "Butch"(Karen) Sanson and her sister, Angela (Danny) Lubritz. 

She is preceded in death by her infant brother, Mark Courville; maternal grandparents, Maurice and Marie Belaire; adopted maternal parents, Wesley and Agnes Babin; paternal grandparents, Alpha and Leona Courville, Sr..
