She is proceeded in death by her parents, Jospeh and Eula Delafosse; her daughter, Dorothy Fontenot; her son, Johnathon Fontenot; her brothers, Ray Delafosse, Hersey Delafosse, J.D. Delafosse, Verlon Delafosse, Herley Delafosse, and Donald Delafosse; and her sisters, Molly Tate, Hazel Ortego, and Janette Comeaux.

The family would like to thank the staff of Heritage Manor Nursing Home in Ville Platte, who were great to their mother and thank the staff at Mercy Hospital for her care, along with Alliance Hospice.  

A memorial service will be at a later date for family and friends of Verby Pauline Delafosse Fontenot.
