Faye Lafield Boudreaux Landry

Date of death:
January 13, 2009

A longtime resident of Baton Rouge, Faye Lafield Boudreaux Landry died Tuesday, Jan. 13, 2009, at Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center. She was 79 and a native of Batchelor. She moved to Baton Rouge as a young child and graduated from Baton Rouge High School, where she was a majorette. When her high school sweetheart, Leonce "Boo" Boudreaux, returned from World War II duty with the 1st Calvary, they married. As a young family they lived in the Southdowns area and helped found St. Aloysius Catholic church and school. They then built one of the first houses in the Sherwood Forest subdivision and became founding members and longtime supporters of St. Thomas More Catholic church and school. Faye was an avid supporter of her children's school and their activities, serving as room mother, unofficial "chauffeur" for athletic events, official decorator, snack central chairman for all children in the Greater Sherwood Forest-Broadmoor area and ever-ready volunteer for anything that needed to be done for an almost 20-year span. Her biggest delight was the children, and not just her own. She began St. Thomas More's Christmas Eve tradition of having young children dressed as angels place the baby Jesus in the Nativity scene. She delighted, each year in her "angels." She also worked alongside her first husband as he built his State Farm Insurance Co. business and they traveled the world. At home they were also active in the Exchange Club and the Krewe of Tucamcari. Despite fighting numerous life-threatening diseases during the past 10 years, she found love again and married a fellow cancer survivor, Carl "Corky" Landry. Their five years together were full of great faith, shared compassion, fun and a few slot machines. Special thanks to Dr. Mike Rolfsen and his nurse, LaShay, for their around the clock care for many years, as well as Dr. Mike McCarthy and Fiesta Linton, her very loving caretaker. She was predeceased by her parents, George Raymond and Lena Brown Lafield; brother, Sonny Lafield; and first husband, Leonce "Boo" Boudreaux. She is survived by her husband, Corky Landry, of Baton Rouge; two daughters, Sandy and husband Roger LeBlanc, and Cindy and husband Bert Dantin; son, Barry and wife Marlene Boudreaux; six grandchildren, Gabrielle and Danielle LeBlanc, Todd and Alan Boudreaux and Jacob and Justin Dantin; as well as numerous stepchildren and stepgrandchildren. Visitation at Rabenhorst Funeral Home East, 11000 Florida Blvd., on Wednesday, Jan. 14, was from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Visitation at St. Thomas More Catholic Church on Thursday from 1 p.m. until Mass of Christian Burial at 2 p.m. Burial in Roselawn Memorial Park. Pallbearers will be Scott Fruge, Todd Boudreaux, Jacob Dantin, Justin Dantin, Earl Landry and Kenny Landry. She was a member of the Catholic Daughters of the Americas.
