Barbara Ann Badon Landry, 87, entered into eternal rest with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on August 3, 2023 surrounded by her loving family. Barbara was born on July 1, 1936 in Orange, Texas to Alpha and Agnes Romero Badon.
They later moved to Johnson Bayou, LA where she was raised with her ten siblings. At a very young age her parents instilled in her to always do a hardworking honest job. From picking cotton as a child, to nursing with Dr. Cecil Clark, to cleaning offices and homes for the Jones Law Firm, and to her last job as Supervisor of Housekeeping at South Cameron Hospital, her work was impeccable. As a testament to her work ethic, her co-workers always commented on what a wonderful example she was and how much they learned from her.
She met and married the love of her life, Johnny Landry in Cameron, Louisiana where they raised their six children. You could always find her in the morning, reading her Bible. This is a legacy she has left behind to her children and grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her loving husband; her two sons, Ronald “Ronnie” Jackson, Vernon “Bubbie” Jackson; her granddaughter, Jennifer George; and her grandson, Ronald “Lil Ronnie” George; her five brothers, Shirley Badon, Martin “Blue” Badon, Ray “Cobet” Badon, Lloyd Badon and Jim Badon; her three sisters, Jeanette Trahan, Irene Trahan and Evelyn Cormier; and her son-in-law, Barry Brunet.
