Mom, Maw Maw, Maw Maw Chenier, Maw Maw C, Ada, Marie, it didn’t matter what you called her, but it did matter when. She would always answer and be ready for whatever you needed. She was tireless, feisty, and resourceful. She was loving and a great example for the generations that watched her. We called her many things but last night the Lord called her home. You will be missed Marie Oubre Chenier.
