Cecile loved to dance and met Leon at a dance in Duson and that dance turned into a 64 year marriage. As a young couple, they bought Leon's Lounge in Duson, which became known, not only for a great dancing spot, but for the best hamburgers around. Cecile loved cook, made the best sweet dough pies, fried chicken, and corn maque choux. She loved to sew and created many patch quilts for her family. Cecile and Leon really enjoyed their trips to Europe, and cruises after their well deserved retirement years. Cecile loved spending time with her friends and family, and will be missed by all who knew her and loved her. Pallbearers will be her five grandsons, Todd Trahan, Chad Trahan, Randy Trahan, Toby Daigle, Ted Daigle, along with family member, Mike Mosing. The family requests that visitation be observed in Martin & Castille's DOWNTOWN location on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 from 9:00 AM until time of service. A rosary will be recited on Wednesday at 10:00 AM by Brady LeBlanc in Martin & Castille Funeral Home. The family would like to offer a special thank you to her sister-in-law, Helen Baudoin and her friend Helen Labbé, both from Lafayette, for the kindness and love they showed Cecile; along with an appreciation to Madison de Lafayette and Amedisys Hospice for their care.
