In memory of
Josephine Penzato "JoMarie" Himel
Loving mother and grandmother, Josephine Penzato "JoMarie" Himel, went to her eternal resting place on June 21, 2020, at the age of 74. Josephine Marie was born to parents Joseph and Josephine (Madonia) Penzato in Gary, IN, on December 17, 1946. Raised in New Orleans, she attended Our Lady of Good Counsel and graduated from Fortier High School in 1964. Along with her husband, Stanley A. Himel, Jr., they lived in Terrytown, LA, for over 50 years. Following in the footsteps of her parents, she was a lifelong cosmetologist. While working at Chateau de Notre Dame in the 1980s, she enjoyed the time she spent interacting with the elderly residents. Later, after earning her instructor's license, she worked until her retirement as an inspector for the State Board of Cosmetology. Until the end, JoMarie remained honest and high-spirited. As a devout Christian, her family is confident that she is happily talking everyone's ear off in heaven. Many will miss those talks with her. She leaves behind her son Craig Himel, his wife Andrea, and their children Amanda, Brandon, and Ethan; her daughter Pam Mouton, her husband Richard, and their daughters Mallory and Lauren; as well as her brother, Jeffrey, wife Lori and their children and grandchildren. At this time, no services will be held. We ask that you pray that God will repay her in heaven for all the love she gave during her lifetime.
