Mrs. Guilbeau had been a resident of Sunset since 1976. She was employed with Charity Hospital for 10 years and with Evangeline Downs for 10 years. She was an avid dollmaker, was very active in arts and crafts, and was an excellent gardener. Mrs. Guilbeau was an amazing mother and grandmother to her family, always there to love and care for them. She loved her husband with her every breath, and her family takes comfort in knowing that she is reunited with him at last.
Survivors include one devoted daughter, Sylvery Ann Russo and husband, Russ, of Sunset; one grandchild to whom she gave the world, Kimberly Nicolosi Dupre and husband, Shawn, of Lafayette; three great grandchildren that were her pride and joy, Elizabeth Dupre, Victoria Dupre and Maggie Dupre; three sisters, Eugenia "Nee Nee" Matthieu of Lafayette, Clarice Menard Barousse of Jennings, and Alice Menard of Lafayette.
She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Pierre Guilbeau; her parents, Jean Jacques Menard and the former Merillia Lantier; one brother, Isaac Menard; and three sisters, Belzie Courville, Wilma Patin, and Larris Myers.
The family would like to extend special thanks to the caregivers at Maison de Lafayette, where she celebrated her 91st birthday with her good friend, Miss Marion.
Melancon Funeral Home, Evangeline Memorial Gardens Chapel, 4117 N. University Ave., Carencro was in charge of arrangements.
