100 YEARS OLD

On February 8, a century ago, a baby girl Called "Edma" kicked her way into the world in the Brusly area of Louisiana.

Surviving the beginning of a new century, Edma grew to adulthood and found her true love in Samuel Boudreaux. They married and settled in Belle Rose, raising a family of five beautiful daughters. "Shoe", as he was called, worked harvesting sugar cane and sold cars after retiring to support his family. But Edma worked just as hard as matriarch of this busy group.

All through her life Edma loved to dance. She and "Shoe" danced through 56 years of marriage before his death in 1979. Not until 1998 did she hang up her dancing slippers! Many probably remember her dancing the waltz, her favorite dance, at the Music box in Galvez until just two years ago. Her daughter, Doris Cowan was still taking her mother to the Music Box every week until she was 98 years old. Edma has truly twirled around the dance floor numerous miles over the years of her lifetime.

Still possessing a zest for life, Edma has enjoyed living at D'Ville Home in Donaldsonville since October 1998. She will be celebrating her 100th Birthday with her family and friends at D'Ville on Sunday, February 13. Presently Edma has 60 descendants including 5 daughters, 17 grandchildren, 36 great grandchildren, and 2 Great great Grandchildren. Her daughters are: Wilma Medine of St. Amant; Ella Guilfou of Houma; Mary Lovell of Reno, Nevada; Mildred LeBlanc of Labadieville; Doris Cowan of Metairie. This centurion, Edma Boudreaux, will be the Belle of the Ball at D'Ville of February 13 as she sways to the sound of music and remembers the beaucoups of steps she has danced over the last 100 years. Happy Birthday, Edma! Keep those toes tapping,
