VILLE PLATTE It is with immense sadness and heavy hearts that the family of Loretta Margaret Janet Helmer, 89, announces the end of her prolific journey here on earth she passed away peacefully, surrounded by her beloved family, Thursday, April 03, 2014 at Mercy Regional Medical Center of Ville Platte. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 AM Tuesday, April 8, 2014 at St. Theresas Catholic Church in St. Landry with Rite of Committal to follow in the St. Theresas Cemetery. Father Richard Broussard will officiate the services.
Loretta was a devoted mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. Her family meant the world to her and their well being was always her first priority. She leaves behind three beloved sons: George R. Helmer, Jr. and his wife, Mary of San Jose, CA., Robert Donnie M. Helmer and his wife Jackie of St. Landry and Kenneth M. Helmer and his wife, Linda of Kingwood, TX. Her memory will be carried on by her three grandchildren: Brooke H. Guillory and her husband, Luke of St. Landry, Matthew R. Helmer and Andrew R. Helmer, both of Kingwood, TX. and her two great grandchildren: Addison K. Guillory and Anna Claire Guillory. She will be sadly missed by her brother Dr. Hansel Janet of Gulfport, MS. and her many nieces, nephews and her great nieces and nephews. Loretta was a kind and loving soul, she enjoyed spending time with her close friends and was an active member of the Catholic Daughters but her true passion was always her precious family.
The family would like to send their sincere gratitude to Prairie Manor Nursing Home, Dr. Tommy Fontenot and his staff and the entire staff of the ICU at Mercy Regional Medical Center, with a special thanks to Nurse Ivy, for the excellent care that they provided during their mothers final days.
She will now reunite in Heaven with the love of her life, her husband, George R. Helmer, Sr., her parents, Robert and Frances Bamber Janet, Sr. and her siblings: R. P. Janet Jr. and Eudora J. Helmer. Their meeting will surely be a joyous occasion, a much anticipated reunion.
