She spent the happiest years of her life fishing, Cajun dancing, hunting, and just living a simple life with "O.J." until his passing. But overall, she made the best of life, realizing it is a gift to be treasured each day. She was born in Mansura, LA, and preceded in death by her parents, Mary Cooper Neck & Eustice Jean Neck, her brother, Howard Jeansonne of Violet, LA and her sister, Mamie Gueho of Fordoche, LA.
