It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Betty Lou Marks Thibodeaux on Tuesday, February 15, 2022, at her home in Arnaudville surrounded by her family at the age of 69. She was retired from Meche’s Meat Market where she worked as a meat packer and cashier for many years. As a pastime, she enjoyed quilting, sewing, embroidering, cooking family meals, spoiling her grandkids, and told her stories of Clautile the Mouse.
