Mrs. Istre was a lifelong resident of Lake Arthur. She loved to iron and was known for her delicious fried chicken. She loved attending Mass, saying her rosary, dancing and having family get-togethers. Mrs. Istre never had a negative word to say to anyone and she was loved and will be missed by all who knew her. She was a member of Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church and was chosen Catholic Daughter Mother of the Year. She was a member of the church choir, the funeral choir and the Coalition Choir.
She is survived by her husband of 64 years, Mr. Carlton Istre; one daughter, Jessica (Lorne) Guidry of Jennings; three sons, Robert Dale (Bonnie) Istre, Dennis (Betty) Istre and Wayland (Laura) Istre, all of Lake Arthur; 12 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren; and one great great-grandchild.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Arcade and Amelie Broussard Cormier; eight sisters and four brothers.
We would like to thank Louisiana Hospice Palliative Care and Camelot Brookside for the care they gave mom. Special thanks go to her CNA Renee Moses and her loving sitters Brenda Moses and Beatrice Zachary who took such loving care of our mom.
