Barbara Tassin

August 1, 1943 — September 15, 2023

Baton Rouge, Louisiana

 

Barbara Tassin peacefully entered Heaven’s gates on Friday, September 15, 2023, at the age of 80. She was born August 1, 1943, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana to Anthony “Tony” Bonacorso and Rose Bonacorso. A 1961 graduate of St. Anthony High School, Barbara worked for Goudchaux’s part-time while raising her family.

She was a member of the St. Alphonsus Hospitality Group.

She is preceded in death by her parents, her beloved husband of more than 50 years, Lester “Les Tassin” and her sister Sindee Grimm. Barbara is survived by her loving sons, Michael Tassin and wife Angie, and Darren Tassin and wife Denise; her beloved grandchildren Chase Tassin and wife Madison, Kaylee Venable and husband Jacob, and Darian Legier; six great-grandchildren; brother-in-law Merle Grimm; and two nieces, Toni Lorio and husband Mike, and Debbie Grimm.

Family meant everything to Barbara. The example that she and Les set in showing and giving love leaves an amazing legacy. She met the love of her life at the age of 14 years old and he treated her like a princess until the day he passed. They loved to travel, and she loved being with Les as they enjoyed their many adventures with the Baton Rouge Corvette Club. Her favorite pastime was spending time playing cards with her friends.
