The family and friends of Mary Louise Cina are mourning the loss of their loved one who was called from this life and into the arms of Jesus on March 26, 2013.

A Mass of Christian burial will be held to honor her life at Our Lady Help of Christians Catholic Church in Jennings on Tuesday, April 2, 2013, at 10 a.m. Mary will be laid to eternal rest in Greenwood Cemetery following her services. Father Charles McMillin will officiate.

Mary Louise, a lifelong resident of Jennings, was born to the late Leo Paul Fruge and the late Elgie Marie Fontenot Fruge on November 21, 1934. She was a paralegal for Exxon Oil Company. Mary brought elegance and grace to everything she touched and she touched the lives and hearts of everyone she knew. Mary was truly an extraordinary woman. She was very active in many organizations, church and ladies’ groups, and devoted to the care of her family. She enjoyed dancing, decorating and spoiling her grandchildren. Her love and light will be missed by all who were blessed to have known her.

Mary is survived by her beloved husband, Nicholas Anthony Cina of Jennings; her son and daughter-in-law, Mark Stephen Cina and Candyce of Lafayette; her two beautiful grandchildren, Cecilia and Cade Cina; and her three sisters, Lucille Reed of Bastrop, Texas, Yvonne Huddleston of McKenny, Texas, and Elizabeth Sue (Gerald) Smith of Jennings.

Mary now rests in Heaven with her parents, Leo Paul and Elgie Marie F. Fruge who preceded her in death.

Carrying Mary to her eternal resting place in Greenwood Cemetery will be Bryon, Michael, Thomas and Joshua Sonnier, Aaron Nicholas and Alex Materne.

No time on earth is long enough to share with those we love or to prepare our hearts for good-bye. May time soften the pain until all that remains is the comfort of memories and the love you share. May you find strength from the scriptures and from each other at this time. Corinthians 15:55-57
