June 8, 1927 — August 30, 2014
Nelda M. Daigle, 87, a native of Four Mile Bayou and resident of Morgan City, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Saturday, Aug. 30, 2014, at Teche Regional Medical Center.
Nelda was a passionate Catholic believer that expressed her love for Christ in taking care of her family and friends. She was a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who enjoyed spoiling all of her grandchildren whenever she had the chance.
Nelda was full of charisma and charm and would never meet a stranger. She would open her home to anyone who needed something to eat or a place to stay when they were down on their luck. Many people who knew her would say she was full of grace towards her family and friends.
Nelda will be lovingly remembered by her four daughters, Gail and her husband, Gary Lombas, of Berwick, Barbara and her husband, Lawrence Toups, of Berwick, Kim Morin, of Morgan City, and Angela Daigle, of Morgan City; three sons, Alfred “Poochie” Daigle Sr. and his wife, Mayola, of Patterson, Aubrey Daigle and his wife, Nora, of Morgan City, and David Daigle and wife, Lisa, of Berwick; 26 grandchildren; 51 great-grandchildren; six great-great-grandchildren; one brother, Hubert “Shine” Scully and his wife, Gertrude, of Bayou Vista; two sisters, Audrey “Doot” Bailey, of Stephensville, and LeAnna “DeeDee” Acosta, of Stephensville; one adopted daughter, Genivee “Neen” Broussard; and one son-in-law, Sterling “Moose” Aucoin.
Nelda was preceded in death by her husband, Alfred Daigle; her parents, John and Nora Lee Scully; three brothers, Wade Scully, Leonard “Yan” Scully and Elwood “Tot” Scully; one daughter, Cheryl Aucoin; one granddaughter; and three grandsons.
Visitation will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 2, 2014, at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Morgan City beginning at 9 a.m. until time of Mass. A Mass of Christian Burial will begin at 11 a.m. Nelda will be laid to rest next to her husband in the Morgan City Cemetery.
