Mamou- It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that the family of Wilfred "Pop" Papillion, 88, announces his passing.
Father Billy Massie, pastor of St. Ann's Catholic Church will conduct a Mass of Christina Burial Saturday at St. Ann's Catholic Church at 1:00 PM. Visitation will be at Ardoin's Funeral Home in Mamou, beginning at 9:00 AM until Mass time. Pop will be laid to rest in the New St. Ann's Cemetery following Mass.

Pop was a proud member of Laborer's International Union of North America Local 207 . His main goal was to insure his family's success. He commuted to the refineries in Lake Charles from his home in Mamou every day, for over 50 years.
