She loved her church family and was a longtime member of the First United Methodist Church where she grew up, was married, and raised her children. Mrs. Chaisson was also a loving and faithful wife, devoted mother, grandmother, and aunt. No matter what the weather or her health, or how far she had to travel, she could always be seen cheering in the stands at hundreds of ballgames through the years. She loved cooking for her family and was known for her delicious duck gumbo and Mimis rice-n-gravy. She was a loyal and compassionate friend, and will be missed by so many that needed her. She was loved so much by her son-in-law Jimmy , who fought with her for the crossword puzzles and loved to keep her in stitches! She will also be dearly missed by a host of precious nieces and nephews. Survivors left to cherish her memory are her husband of 49 years, Don E. Chaisson of Jennings; one daughter who adored her, Mrs. James (Debbie Chaisson) Redmond,Sr. of Lafayette; her precious grandchildren, including four grandsons: Ryan, Kaleb and Tyler Chaisson; and James (Jay ) Redmond, Jr.; one granddaughter, Jordan Stevens; and two great-granddaughters, Addilyn Chaisson and MaKenzie Foreman.
