A resident of New Iberia, Ruby was born in Loreauville, LA on January 5, 1923, to the late Adam and Clara O’Brien Breaux. Ruby worked for D.H. Castille, in New Iberia for many years, where she then met and married her husband, J.O. Together they raised their four children. Ruby loved her family mini reunions (the O’Brien clan) where everyone gathered at one or another’s house, and had a pot brewing on the stove with a delicious meal to be served. Ruby was a great cook, just like her mother Clara. She taught her children to make things like boudin, hot tamales and meat pies. Ruby loved to crochet, make quilts, dresses for her granddaughters, along with doll clothes for her granddaughters. One of her favorite things to do with her grandchildren was to rock and hum to them. She always said, when she dies, she hopes God would put her in the nursery so she could rock all the babies in heaven. Ruby was very much into her faith; she loved praying the rosary every day, and never missed a 7am mass at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church. Ruby would decorate for all the holidays and welcomed anyone who would come to visit, especially if they brought cold beer.

Mrs. Gonsuron is survived by a daughter, Mary Kay Gonsuron Boudreaux (Tim) of New Iberia; two sons, David Gonsuron (Debbie) of North Carolina, and Glenn Gonsuron of California; grandchildren, Danielle Boudreaux Parker (Bryan), Shane Boudreaux (Lacey), Tyra Gonsuron Short (Jason), Ricky Gonsuron (Lindsay), Stuart Gonsuron (Christina), Sarah Gonsuron, Ashley Gonsuron, and Allen Gonsuron (Laura); great-grandchildren: Morgan and Cohen Parker, Winnie and Everlie Boudreaux, Caitlyn Buteaux Mauney (Hunter), John Bailey Delahoussaye, Madeline, Nathalie, and Emery Gonsuron, and Cecilia and Elizabeth Gonsuron; and a great-great grandchild, Charlotte Mauney.
