Learn about upgrading this memorial...

Oakdale
Allen Parish

Death: Oct. 5, 1956

Rapides Parish

Thelma was married twice. Her first marriage was to Donald Moyer; they had one child. In 1945 Thelma married (Ernest) Leonard "Peg" Breaux. Shortly after, their first child was born - Linda Marie. Three years later, in December 1948, their second child was born; Robert Wayne. In 1956, Leonard and Thelma were killed in a car accident on "dead man's curve" between Cheneyville and Lecompte, where they lived. Leonard owned and operated a bar with, interestingly, a "colored" bar in back. Thelma operated a salon from their home.
Unfortunately, their families failed to care for the children and they eventually were given over to Catholic Social Services. The children grew up in separate orphanages. Leonard and Thelma's funeral Mass was held at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in her hometown of Oakdale, in Allen Parish. They are also buried there.
