Sherry L. “Teedee” Fontenot, 76, entered the Kingdom of Heaven on October 29, 2022 surrounded by her family at the Carpenter House in Lafayette, LA.
Teedee was born December 17, 1946 in Elton, LA. She graduated Elton High School then married the love of her life in 1969. She embraced time shared with family during holidays, birthdays, and with friends during pokeno nights. She was loved for her gumbo during holiday gatherings and enjoyed eating crawfish throughout crawfish season. Teedee’s heart was big like her family and she was feisty at times but that was her charm. This strength and toughness helped her to raise one daughter, one son, and four grandchildren who all loved pranks, including her husband. She was one of a kind and although our world will be different without her, we are each a part of who we are because of her.
She leaves to cherish her memory; one son, Terrance Dwayne Fontenot (Connie) of Lake Charles; three sisters; Betty Langley, Ruby Hafford, and Gale Thibodeaux; and four grandchildren; Chad Gardiner, Kayla Greathouse (Nick), Dustin Gardiner, and Bradley Fontenot, along with a vast number of extended family and friends.
She is preceded in death by her beloved husband Rollie Gordon Fontenot; a daughter; Sharon Kay Gardiner; and parents, Robert and Eva Duhon.
