Shirley Anne (Chaumont) Janot, 80, of Eunice, received her eternal reward on Tuesday, July 19, 2016 at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Lafayette. Shirley was born on December 16, 1935 in Eunice to Berchman & Hilda (Vidrine) Chaumont. She was a 1954 graduate of Eunice High School. After graduation she worked as a telephone operator for South Central Bell for many years. In 1970, together with her sons, Shirley and her husband, C.J., opened C.J.'s Mini-Chek grocery, a convenience store in Eunice which is still operated by two of her sons today. She is probably best remembered as "Mrs. Shirley" by her smiles and kindness shown to the many customers she served over the years. Shirley was an active member of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in Eunice. Her favorite past time was playing slots at the area casinos and she developed quite the reputation for being especially successful at it.

Shirley is preceded in death by her husband, C.J. Janot, Jr., and her parents. She is survived by three sons, Kendall & wife Lena (Comeaux) of Eunice, Dr. Robert & wife Becky (Ogea) of Sulphur, and Brian of Eunice; three sisters, Gayle Granger of Katy, TX, Rhoda Huckaby of Eunice, and Maxine Clause of Spring, TX; grandchildren Mindy Janot of Eunice, Toby Janot of Plaisance, Dr. Adam Janot of Omaha, NE, Emily Porche' of Lake Charles, and Kayla Ogea of Sulphur, Sonny Cornellier & Skye Cornellia, both of Eunice; and four great grandchildren.

Visitation will be Friday from 4:30-9:00 pm with a scripture service by Deacon Richard Donahue and a Rosary by Deacon Gary Gaudin @ 6:30 pm. Visitation continues Saturday morning, July 23 from 8:00 am until time of service.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Saturday, July 23, at 11:00 am at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in Eunice. Celebrant will be Fr. Travis Abadie. Entombment will be at St. Paul's Mausoleum in Eunice.
