Memories Timeline


  1. I am saddened by Etheleen's death. I came to know her as the sister of my colleague James Ruston and frequently saw her after moving to Lake Charles. I remember Etheleen's kindness and sweet disposition, her great devotion to God to the Church. Her family, St. Margaret's and Lake Charles have lost a great person.

  2. Mom,Love you. You are greatly missed. You are and will always will be my best friend. Until we meet again. Love you,Rosie

  3. My thoughts and prayers are with the Meaux family. Rosie share many beautiful stories of her wonderful mother-in-law/best friend while working with me at SJW. May you find peace and comfort in the cherished memories of Mrs. Meaux.

  4. Our prayers are with you and your family. Mrs. Meaux was a true lady of Villa Maria. She always had a smile, no matter of her medical trials and was so proud of her family! Jo Ann Niles, Villa Maria Retirement Center Director
