Christine Dicapo Morrow, a beloved life long resident of Melville, Louisiana, has peacefully passed away on July 11, 2023 at the Landmark South Nursing Home in Baton Rouge, LA. She was born on September 22, 1934, in Bayou Rouge, Louisiana. Christine will forever be remembered for her warmth and kindness towards everyone she met.

Christine's life was filled with love and devotion to her family and community. She dedicated herself to St. John Catholic Church and was an active member of the Melville Ladies Altar Society. Her faith was a guiding light in her life, and she found solace and joy within the walls of her beloved church.

Not only was Christine a pillar of her community, but she was also a remarkable cook. Her Spaghetti and Italian fig cookies were renowned for their mouthwatering flavors. Many fond memories were created around her dinner table as friends and loved ones enjoyed the delicious meals she prepared with love.

Throughout her life, Christine had an incredible ability to make others feel welcome and cherished. She never met a stranger and had an open heart that embraced all those around her. Her home, yard, and church were special places where she shared laughter, stories, and countless memories with her family and friends.

"Our Mamma was everything that the word "Mamma" meant. She was devoted to our Dad and her children. We had two of the best. Mamma was a home body but would drop everything if any of her children or family were in need. Mamma will be missed every single day."~ Sal, Kathleen, and Jennie 

Christine is survived by her children Sal Morrow Jr. and wife Susan, Kathleen Morrow Arnold and husband Leo, and Jennie Morrow Fell; grandchildren Katie Arnold Gaudin and husband Nate, Matthew Morrow and wife Karin, Jeff Morrow and wife Shanna, Nicholas Fell, and Patrick Fell; great-grandchildren Rynn Gaudin, Logan Morrow, Landry Morrow, Savannah Morrow, and Anna Belle Zaragoza.

In addition to her immediate family members, Christine's passing has deeply affected those who were fortunate enough to call her a friend. Annie Lee Mose, who was like a sister, held a special place in Christine's heart as they shared a bond that transcended friendship.
