Life’s Journey

Theresa Simon was born on June 4, 1942, to Semien and Bernadette Simon of Mamou, Louisiana. After accepting Jesus Christ as her Savoir at a very early age and serving Him daily from then on, God saw fit to give her rest by taking her home to be with Him. 

Theresa, better known to her biological family as Mama, T, and Ms. T to many, lived a full life for God helping everyone placed in her path. Theresa was a loving, energetic woman who tolerated no foolishness when it came to successfully accomplishing what she felt would be her job (nothing but excellence).   She took on the task/job of taking care of many children, including her younger siblings, the sick, and worked as a Professional Caretaker for many (including her mother) for decades. She provided love along with all the physical or medical assistance possible.  

Theresa served as a Deaconess, supported the youth department and gave to her church through fund raising with her delicious boudin, gumbo, and sauce piquant for many years and helped in any area that led to the growth of her church and community. Theresa was a wonderful wife, and awesome mother to her children, 2 bonus children. Theresa’s prayers always included a desire to have guidance to live a life that would be pleasing to God.
