Nelma was born on November 12, 1941, in Breaux Bridge. Nelma was a remarkable woman who touched the lives of everyone around her with her gentle spirit and kind heart. She exuded a sense of grace that was admired by all who knew her. Her legacy will live on in the memories of those fortunate enough to have been blessed by her presence.

One of Nelma's greatest passions was painting. She had a natural talent for capturing the beauty of the world with her brushstrokes. Each stroke conveyed emotions that words often fail to express. Through her artwork, she expressed the depth of her soul and left behind an impression that will forever be cherished.

Above all else, Nelma treasured spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. They were truly the light of her life. She showered them with endless affection and wisdom, ensuring that they felt loved and supported at every step of their journey. Nelma's legacy will continue through the love and values she instilled in her future generations.

Nelma leaves behind a void in the hearts of all who knew her. Her gentle smile, caring nature, and unwavering love will be dearly missed. She was a pillar of strength for her family, a source of inspiration for her friends, and an angel among us.
