Lorrie Montz Laurent

On Thursday, August 9, 2018, Lorrie Montz Laurent went to heaven to join her husband, Ewell Laurent.

Lorrie Montz Laurent

Lorrie was born on July 1, 1927, in Reserve, the only child of Rudolph “Dutch” Montz and Vervette Catoire, who sadly died during childbirth.

She was lovingly raised by Vervette’s parents, Achille and Victorine (Jacob) Catoire.

Lorrie was a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, who loved to crochet and sew. She was a member of the St. Peter’s Ladies Altar Society and for many years and made the baptismal covers for the christenings.

She was also a long time member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the VFW.

Left to cherish her memory are two sons and their wives, Duane and Susan Laurent and Kevin “Chin” and Merle Laurent; three grandchildren and their spouses, Sarah and Kevin Williams, Lance and Lindsey Laurent, and Lane and Morgan Laurent; and two great grandchildren, Baylee and Mason Laurent.

Masses are preferred in lieu of flowers.

A visitation in her honor will be held on Monday, Aug. 13 at St. Peter Catholic Church in Reserve from 9 until 11 a.m., followed by a Mass of Christian Burial and entombment in the St. Peter cemetery.

Rose Lynn Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.
