She was preceded in death by her parents; husband of 36 years, Allen Roy Leger; two sisters, Ruth Raggio and Audry Shultz; and two brothers, Jacob “J.C.” and Wilbert “Willie” Klumpp.

Carrying her to her final place of rest, will be her grandchildren, Jason Robertson, Steven Robertson, Chase Comeaux, Jeremy Leger, Jacob Landry, Bart Comeaux and Zachary Duhon.

Memories Timeline


  1. May God grant her soul eternal rest and may God ease your sorrow and give you peace and comfort in the days ahead.

  2. To Miss Ida's family: I loved her. I sat by her at some activities at Jennings High school. Most recently, though, I would visit with her when she came to sing at our Singalong at the Living Center. She was sharp as a tack. I spoke with her in the past couple of weeks on Wednesday morning. May God bless you the family with wonderful memories of this spunky, loving mother and grandmother.

  3. Our deepest sympathies go out to your family. May God give you the peace that you seek and may the soul of your loved one rest in peace.
