Jennie was a "domestic engineer" with a gift for cajun cooking and telling brightly colored jokes. She "held court" at every event and loved to socialize and dance to country music. She was an amazingly strong woman, the matriarch of our family, the resilient driving force in our lives - she helped to shape all of us into who we are. A steadfast source of strength and direction, her home on Milton Street was the hub of activity for family events. She is preceded in death by brothers, Burl Thibodeaux (Rita), Curtis Thibodeaux (Rose), Wickless Thibodeaux, Jr. (Raynelda) and a sister, Alberta T. Hebert (Arthur) and is survived by numerous nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly.
