Obituary for Odile LaFleur Mounger
Odile Mounger was born in Ville Platte, LA on October 26, 1919. She met the love of her life, Lon Mounger, married him, and they were married for 65 years. They lived in New Orleans, LA , moved to San Antonio, TX , and then to Houston.
Odile loved to share moments from her past. When you got her talking she had a lot to say. Whether it was voicing her opinion or sharing her fond memories of her beloved Lon or reminiscing about her hometown Ville Platte, Louisiana. She knew how to engage an audience. When she wasn’t sharing stories or playing bingo at the community center she was busy loving her precious family of four daughters, eight grandchildren, five great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. In the past she would express that love with cooking and baking. It was her chocolate chip cookies that won the hearts of many in her household. Instead of shedding tears about the loss of this wonderful little lady think of her sitting in a comfy chair, with her legs covered with a warm blanket while she reads a book and pets her little dog. This is the Odile that many would be able to picture and smile about, and who will never be forgotten.
