She was a founding member of the Louisiana Right to Life and Eunice Chapter as well as a leader for the Camp Fire Girls and Cub Scouts. She loved to do yard crafts, gardening and cutting grass, but most, of all she loved her role as Maw Maw Laine and her happiest times were spent creating memories with her grandkids.

Manuel and husband, Neal of Lafayette, Karen G. LeJeune and husband, Benny of Eunice, Jasper Guillory and husband, Anthony of Houston and Jude Guillory of Eunice; her two sisters, Ruth Rawls of Baton Rouge and JoAnn Augustine of Naples, FL. ; her five joys of her life, Christopher and Drake LeJeune, Eric and Emily Manuel and Lesli Guillory; two great grandchildren, Elena and Liam LeJeune.
