Because of COVID, the funeral mass and visitation for Mrytis Thomas will be held privately for her immediate family. Following the mass, all extended family and friends are invited to prayers at her burial site. The family appreciates your understanding.
Myrtis Eve Thomas passed away peacefully on Saturday, August 28, 2021 with her loving family at her side. She was 79.
Mrytis, known affectionately as “Maw” to all, was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Her greatest joy was a house filled with her family and cooking Sunday dinners for them. Her love for nurturing and caring for everyone made her special and she was the most selfless woman known. No holiday or birthday went without Maw’s special touch whether it was baking birthday cakes, sewing and crafting or long talks with us. She attended every special event for everyone in the family and was so proud of each one of us.
She was without a doubt a Godly woman and a mentor to all. You never felt judged and she always saw the good in everyone. She would even nurture our dying plants back to life, which gardening was a passion of hers. She had a special touch on anyone that met her which left a positive effect on them. She loved saying her rosary and had an undying devotion to the Blessed Mother Mary. Her family says she was a mother Mary to all of us. She was one of a kind and her legacy will live on forever.
Those left to cherish her memory are her children, Toby Thomas and wife Simonne, Dina Dore’ and Andrea T. Broussard and husband Chris; her grandchildren, Kimberly Quibodeaux (Zach), Tucker Landry (Danielle), Garrett Thomas (Kailey), Tailor Broussard and Rhen Broussard; seven great grandchildren, Ann Katherine Reaux, Peyton Reaux, Caroline Thomas, Brooks Thomas, Oakland Thomas, Rikken Landry and Knox Landry; her brother, Carroll Lopez; two aunts, Yvonne Hebert and Lucy Trahan; a sister in law, Venola Bernard; and her Godchildren, Corey Lopez and Julie Hebert.
She is reunited in Heaven with her husband, Huey P. Thomas; her parents, Maxie and Nora Lopez; and her son in law, Mike Dore’.
A Funeral Mass celebrating the life of Myrtis will be held at 11:00 am Saturday, September 4, 2021 at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church. Fr. Buddy Breaux will be the celebrant. Myrtis will be laid to rest in the church mausoleum following the mass. The immediate family will gather at 9:00 am and pray the Blessed Rosary at 10:00 am before the mass.
Those honored to serve as pallbearers are Chris Broussard, Toby Thomas, Garrett Thomas, Tucker Landry, Zach Quibodeaux and Peyton Reaux. Honorary pallbearers are Brooks Thomas, Oakland Thomas, Rikkin Landry, Knox Landry and Carroll Lopez.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to Robyn for her care and physical therapy, Concepts of Care, Bridgeway Hospice. And to her sitters, Peyton Reaux, Darlene LeBlanc, Danette Delahoussaye and Bonnie Leleux. We are grateful for all the prayers.
In lieu of flowers, the family is asking that contributions be made to St. Joseph Diner in Lafayette. We thought this would be the perfect way to honor our mom since she had a love of cooking for family and friends. If you prefer that the family take care of the donation, please not this in your contribution.
Family and friends are encouraged to share the memories and condolences with the family by visiting Mrytis’s memorial page at www.evangelinefuneralhome.com
Evangeline Funeral Home of New Iberia is in charge of arrangements.
