She adored her family first and foremost. She was an excellent bridge player for over 50 years and was a member of numerous bridge clubs. She and her late husband, David, had a passion for gambling and frequently traveled to Las Vegas until Shreveport legalized gambling. She was an avid reader, often reading a book a day. She loved to cheer on her LSU Tigers and was thrilled to see them win their fourth National Championship. She loved her children and their families and was known as “GG” by all. She was a generous person who took care of those who needed help and was always giving to those in need. She will always be remembered for how she made people laugh.
