In memory of
Eugenia Marie (Bertirotti) Champagne
Eugenia (Gina) Marie Bertirotti Champagne, born September 10, 1931, went home to be with her Lord on Friday, January 3, 2020. Gina was born in New Orleans to parents Elvira Scandariatto Bertirotti and Joseph Bertirotti. She is preceded in death by her husband of 46 years, Coy Joseph Champagne. She is survived by daughters Gina Ann Champagne of Denison, Texas and Dino Marie Champagne of Torrance, California. Gina leaves behind five grandchildren whom she loved with all her heart: Angelique Edwards Sims, Francesca Edwards Savage, Dominique Champagne DeMartino, Brendan Michael King, Kristen Marie DeMartino. She also leaves five great-grandchildren of whom she was incredibly proud: Chandler Sims, Addison Morgan, Analiese Sims, Gianna Lopez, and Luciano Lopez and one great-great-grandchild, Emma Morgan. She is survived by two sisters Elaine Fadich and Adele (Cucci) Kennedy. Her siblings Teresa Martinez, Joseph Bertirotti, Vincent Bertirotti, and Dino Bertirotti preceded her in death. She also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews. Gina was a long-time resident of LaPlace and a devout Catholic who enjoyed singing and playing piano. She often sang at funerals, weddings, and Masses at both Ascension of our Lord and St. Joan of Arc churches in Laplace. She was a talented artist/painter who taught lessons for years. She coached softball and taught swimming lessons at Larayo Park in Laplace. She was a proud and wonderful cook, known for her Italian dishes. She was outspoken, lived by her faith and was straightforward in her convictions. She leaves an empty spot in the hearts of those who loved her. There will be a Celebration of Life for her on Saturday, March 28, 2020, at Ascension of Our Lord Church, 1900 Greenwood Drive, LaPlace, Louisiana. Visitation begins at 9:30 a.m. followed by Mass at 10:30 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations made to St. Jude Children's Hospital in Gina's name.
