Your Attention Please
Last Tuesday, Feb. 19, we buried on of our oldest parishioners, Mrs. Lucille Savoie, who was 94 years old. She truly was one of the pioneers of St. Louis Parish. The first mass ever celebrated in Bayou Blue was held at her grandfather's (Mr. J. Baptiste Gros) store. Our church was destroyed by the storm of 1926 and while it was being rebuilt, mass for the people of St. Louis was held in her home. Church fairs were held in her yard. This woman certainly knew what it meant to be "churched". The church was her life. She leaves behind a legacy of faith for all of us. It is through the faith of our ancestors we have our church and for all it stands for today. It is now up to us to pass on the faith and for all our church stands for to the next generation. Let us keep up the good work.
Lucille was a small girl when her parents died. She was raised by her maternal grandparents Severine Marcel and Jean Baptiste Gros.
She was a lady in the truest sense of the word, through behavior and apperance. Even when she was working in her yard, she was wearing a dress. When you visited her, even for just a few minutes, you were treated as an honored guest, being served coffee in a nice cup complete with saucer (no mugs here!).
After the death of her husband, she lived alone for many years. But she was never really alone because most of her children lived within a two block radius of her home. Norma and Paul lived away from Bayou Blue. She was very often visited by her children, over 20 grandchildren and friends. Grand daughter in law, Carolyn Babin Daigle, visited with her every Thursday morning until Lucille died. Norma came from New Orleans often to visit her mother and son, Paul, flew in occasionaly.
Lucille loved to work in her flower beds, sew and make quilts. She made a quilt every year for several years that she donated to St. Louis Church on Bayou Blue to be auctioned off at the church fair. These were not only quilted by hand, they were pieced together by hand. One of her big regrets was when her eyesight became too poor for her to quilt anymore.

A man named James Carl Walker h/o Felicie Wurzlow is credited by Ruby Savoie Daigle, with saving her mother's life in 1956. Mr. Walker had type B positive blood and that's what Lucille needed.
