Elaine Marie Vicknair Cortez

On Monday, August 3, 2020 Elaine Marie Vicknair Cortez, born November 24, 1941, went home to be with God who she referred to as “My God”.  She was a loving wife, homemaker, and aunt. She held a very special place in the hearts of her nieces and nephews.  She was a lifelong resident of LaPlace and a resident of Twin Oaks for years where she shared her time with many friends and family.  She enjoyed her visits with her family and friends. She loved talking to everyone and never met a stranger.  She enjoyed playing bingo, cooking, music, and watching T.V.  She will be missed by all who loved her.

Elaine is survived by her sister Judy Vicknair Methvin, her nieces and nephews and many friends.

She is preceded in death by her husband Roy Joseph Cortez and her twin angel babies.  Her parents, Jourdan Joseph and Rita Vicknair.  Her brothers, Jourdan J Vicknair Jr. (JJ), Wayne P Vicknair (Dooley); and her sister, Barbara Vicknair Millet;  brothers in law, Daniel Paul Millet Sr. and Huey Alvin Methvin.

Special thank you to the staff at Twin Oaks, Dr. Colin Bailey, Oschner Health Care Laplace, University Hospital, Oschner Hospital-Kenner, and Compassus Hospice.  A Memorial Service will be held at a later date.

Millet Guidry Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.
