Loretta Kaiser

August 1, 1926 — January 18, 2018

"If you judge people, You have no time to Love them"
-Mother Theresa

No one lived by those words more than our Mon-Mon. If you had the pleasure of knowing her, you know how true this is.

She was 91 years young and lived her life in glory, Loretta was so special, here is her story.

On August 1, 1926, Willie and Loretta (Cole) Doucet welcomed a baby girl into this world that would one day leave a great legacy behind. That day came on January 18, 2018 at 3:09 am. It is on this day that the world lost a beautiful soul and heaven gained an even more beautiful Saint. Loretta died peacefully in her home exactly the way she desired, surrounded by her family.

Loretta grew up with her father and only brother, Alvin. Her mom died when she was only 2 years old. She knew early on that she wanted to live a life devoted to God and joined the convent at the young age of 14. After her only sibling was killed in WWII, Loretta recognized her desire to have a huge family. She met and married Claude Kaiser, and they would go on and start the legacy off by having 15 children. Giving birth to the first 14 and adopting a sweet baby girl from Vietnam to make it 15. She didn't stop there, she went on to foster many children, most temporary, but one more than temporary. Big Mike brought the total to 16. This legacy grew and grew and is still growing today.

Loretta was a woman of great faith, and she never let that faith be shaken no matter the pain that life brought her. She continued living for God even after becoming a wife and mother. She was known to make anyone who slept over join in the rosary no matter their religion. She was a selfless woman who was dedicated to helping any and all who needed. She delivered meals and communion to all those who were unable to leave their homes. She had friends from every walk of life. She was well known as the "Sausage Bread Lady", and would feed anyone in need. She was famous for making one pot of food last until the last person was satisfied. She was able to make the Cursillo with a dear friend in 2008. She somehow managed to make every grandchild feel as if they were her favorite. She always desired to have many kids especially since both of her parents were orphans that rode the Orphan Train to Louisiana from New York Foundling Hospital and were adopted and raised by local families. This left a huge void in Loretta's heart to not know details of her biological family and where she exactly came from. She would search and later God blessed her with the discovery of her biological first cousin, Suzanne West, and they were united with each other August 1, 2016.

She loved the chaos of life, and was the happiest when her house was filled with her kids and grandkids. The more sounds of children playing the happier she was. Although it is hard for us to imagine this life without her, we find peace in knowing she was ready to go. She enjoyed rocking her babies here on Earth, but she dreamed of one day rocking her babies that went before her, and we can all hear that rocking chair now. We will miss you Mon-Mon.

Loretta was preceded in death by her husband, Claude Kaiser, her brother, Alvin Cole, her mother and father Loretta and Willie Cole Doucet, her sons, Alvin James Kaiser and Albert Kaiser, her grandchildren, Michelle Lacassin and Jennifer Lacassin, her great grandchildren, Brynn Addison Bergeaux and Maryanna Asenette Lacassin, and two daughters-in-law, Rhonda Gayle Kaiser and Monty Kaiser.
