EUNICE- Evelyn Marie Manuel entered into her eternal rest on September 21, 2015 at Our Lady of Wisdom Healthcare Center in New Orleans at the age of 84. Devoted daughter of the late Rene' Manuel and Victoria Durio Manuel, Evelyn is survived by her childhood sweetheart and husband of 65 years, Linus Marlin Manuel; her children and their spouses, Rita Rebecca Manuel "Pepper" Scheffler (Bill) and Terrill James Manuel (Lee); grandchildren, Jonathan Paul Franchebois (Dawn) and Amy Denise Bairnsfather (Scott); five great-grandchildren, Matthew, Michael, Macy and Nathan Franchebois and Sydney Bairnsfather; and sister, Rena Mae Manuel Reed. She was preceded in death by her brother, the late Shelby Joseph Manuel. Evelyn was a 1948 graduate of St. Edmund High School in Eunice, LA; a member of the Catholic Daughters of America #208 since 1950 and St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church's Altar Society, receiving the Bishop's Medal from Bishop Maurice Schexnayder of the Diocese of Lafayette in 1970; assisted with home masses for shut-ins and was commissioned as a Eucharistic Minister by Fr. Donald Hebert in 1984. A native of Eunice, LA, Evelyn and her husband moved to Gretna, LA in 2008 to be near their daughter where she was a parishioner at Infant Jesus of Prague/St. Martha Catholic Church in Harvey, LA. The family would like to thank the nurses and aids at Our Lady of Wisdom Healthcare Center for their conscientious and kind assistance during Evelyn's last illness.
