Maureen was a native of Opelousas and longtime resident of Lake Charles. Hurricane Laura forced her from her home and into the loving care of her family in Opelousas.

Maureen was a devout Catholic who loved the Lord. She was a kind and compassionate person who deeply loved her family, especially her three granddaughters and her newest great grandson. Maureen was extremely proud of her Italian heritage and she had the opportunity to visit Cefalu, Sicily, the city of her ancestors. A helping hand to someone in need, describes Maureen’s kindness and willingness to give. For more than 40 years, Maureen worked and managed the Calcasieu Parish Employees Federal Credit Union in Lake Charles until her retirement. She will be greatly missed by her loving family and her dear friends.

She is survived by her son, Jody Richard and wife Kimberly; daughter, Carla Richard Watkins and husband Mark; husband, Terry Richard; brothers, John Billeaudeau and wife Mary, Kent Terracina and wife Denise, Luke Terracina and Sammy Terracina; sisters, Marie Terracina Bratton, Melinda Terracina and Janice Terracina Marks and husband Jean; three granddaughters, Kristin Watkins Carter and husband Brandyn, Brooke Watkins and Mia Richard; great grandson, Wyatt Carter.
