Amelia Mechie Benoit Fuselier

May 28, 1925 ~ September 3, 2011

Our mother, Mechie departed life peacefully as she slept, surrounded by her family and friends on Friday, September 3, 2011. She died of natural causes in Lafayette, LA and went to be with the Lord.


Mechie lived a full, energetic, exciting life well into her 70's as witnessed by many. Mom always found the humorous side of life and there was always a silver lining in all her days. Mom loved and enjoyed a large family of 5 children (Henry living in Houston, Merlie and Tootsie living in Baton Rouge and Mitchell living in Breaux Bridge), 10 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren.


Mom was born in Lake Charles, LA and lived many years in Morgan City, Toledo Bend Lake, the Texas coast and Houston. Mom's final years were in Lafayette.


Mom was preceded in death by her our father, Joe, our sister Judy and her parents Dehart Henrietta Benoit.

Mom will be greatly missed by all and to those who knew and loved Mom; please know that she would want us all to live life to the fullest as she will be there with you. We love you Mom.see you on the other side.


A Christian service for Mom's ashes are pending the return of a family member from out of country.


Thank you all for being our mother's friends.
