      MRS. CLEMENT DIES SATURDAY

      Funeral Services Are Held Sunday From St. Joseph Catholic Church

      Funeral services for Mrs. Anatole Clement, nee Odele Breaux, 65 years of age, who died at 2:20 P.M. Saturday, January 15, at the Laurent Boudreaux home following a brief illness, were held Sunday afternoon, January 16, from St. Joseph's Catholic Church with interment in the adjoining Catholic cemetery.

      Rev. Hebert Lerschen officiated during the services Sunday afternoon which were attended by a large group of friends and acquaintances from this community. In a brief message of condolence he pad tribute to the life of a devoted mother which had been ended, and his words were a source of much consolation to the bereaved family. Pallbearers included Willie Clement, Walter Clement, Anatole Clement, Jr., August Clement, Elias Simon and Leland Clark.

      Funeral arrangements were under the direction of the Gossen and Privat Funeral Home.

      Mrs. Clement's death came as a shock to her family, since she had been in apparent good health until two weeks ago. During the Christmas holidays she visited relatives in Lake Charles, and had never complained of any illness. When she became ill two weeks before her passing, it was evident that her condition was critical, but until that time, they were not aware that she was suffering from any ailment.

      Born and reared in this immediate vicinity, Mrs. Clement was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Pierre Breaux. In early womanhood, she became the bride of Anatole Clement, and to this union were born ten children, eight of whom survive. She was preceded in death one year by her husband, "B.B." Clement, as he was more familiarly known by his friends, passing away in February, 1937.

      She is survived by three daughters: Mrs. Leland Clark and Mrs. M.J. Henry, Lake Charles; Mrs. Elias Simon of Crowley; and five sons: Clobule, Willie, Walter, Elphie Clement of Rayne, and Anatole Clement, Jr., of Lake Charles. In addition, she is survived by three sisters: Misses Eugenie and Bridget Breaux and Mrs. Melanie Dupont, all of Rayne; and two brothers, Cyprien and Elie Breaux, also of Rayne.

      Tribune expresses the sympathy of the community to members of the family who are deeply grieved over the loss of their loved one.
