VILLE PLATTE - A Funeral Service will be held for Willie Mae Fruge at a 12:00 PM Mass of Christian Burial on Saturday, February 4, 2023, at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church. Burial will take place in Evangeline Memorial Park Cemetery.
Willie Mae Fruge, 91, passed away on peacefully on Sunday, January 29, 2023, surrounded by her loving family. She was a beautician by trade but a true fisherwoman at heart who could dock a boat, clean fist, etc.. Willie Mae found fish by smell (pre-fish finder technology. Catch and release was an ugly phrase. She told the best fishing stories and if you were fishing with her and missed a fish, she either cast over you or angle the boat to fish your spot. Sleeping at Wille’s house guaranteed your kid was getting a funky haircut. She was a very loving person and if Willie found out that something made a grandchild cry, she would do it until it was funny. Willie had a beautiful singing voice and had an ongoing feud with the ladies in the choir. She helped me bag my first deer (public details not available at this time). Willie had a Gypsy spirit as was known for never living in the same spot long. She was also known for never missing anything that was important to you.
She is survived by her daughters, Darlene Soileau of Grand Prairie, Pamela Fruge Bertrand of Mamou, Sophia Fruge of Pine Prairie, and Delia Patin Badeen and husband, Frank of Texas; 9 grandchildren, 22 great grandchildren, 2 great-great grandchildren, her goddaughter, Sophia Dupre and her 3 children, and her sisters, Juanita Rosenbaum of Turkey Creek and Anna Larven Rivera of Mamou.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Samsons Fruge; parents, Roual and Delia Bertrand Fontenot, and son, Samson Fruge, Jr.
