Alida Bazar, a beloved housewife and devoted mother, passed away peacefully at the age of 85 on December 26, 2023, in Mamou, LA. A remarkable woman whose life centered around her family.

Alida indulged in various hobbies and interests. She had a passion for sewing and could create beautiful garments with her skilled hands. Scrabble was another favorite pastime that she thoroughly enjoyed with family and friends. Dancing brought her immense joy as she let loose on the dance floor, swaying gracefully to the music. Josephine also had an affinity for watching "Wheel of Fortune" and old western movies that provided entertainment and relaxation.
