Sheila Rhodes Guidry, a native and lifelong resident of Morgan City, passed away Sunday, Nov. 3, 2013, at her residence at the age of 61.
Sheila is survived by her son, Gregory David Guidry of Morgan City; four brothers, Clyde Rhodes and his wife, Nancy, of Morgan City, Nathan Rhodes of Morgan City, Kenneth Rhodes and his wife, Betsy, of Morgan City, and Kim Rhodes and his wife, Cynthia, of Bayou Vista; three sisters, Dolores Fears and her husband, Mitchell “Chop,” of Stephensville, Pamela Bordelon and her husband, Wiley “Jr.,” of Berwick, and Rebecca Rhodes Kuhn and her husband, Darrell, of Bayou L’Ourse; three sisters-in-law, Mary Gaudet and her husband, Gene, of Morgan City, Maxine Brown and her husband, Pat, of Bayou L’Ourse, and Lynette Aulds and her husband, Randy, of Stephensville; and numerous nieces and nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 41 years, Glenn David Guidry; her father, Davis Clyde Rhodes; her mother, Sylvia Ann Estave Rhodes; her father-in-law, Edward Guidry; her mother-in-law, Barbara Guidry; and her stepson, David Paul Guidry.
Sheila was a loving and caring wife, mother, and sister. A peacemaker in the family, she listened to all sides of the story and never judged. Sheila was her fiercest when it came to her son, Greg, whom she loved with all of her heart. She was a great example of limitless forgiveness. She was an excellent cook and while her husband was famous for his gumbo, she was known for her banana cake. She was dedicated to her faith and God. While heaven is blessed to have her above, her family and friends will miss her on earth.
The family requests that visitation be observed Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2013, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Hargrave Funeral Home with visitation resuming on Thursday, Nov. 7, at 8 a.m. until time of services. A celebration of life for Sheila will take place Nov. 7 at 10 a.m. and Catholic services will follow at 2 p.m. at Hargrave Funeral Home. Sheila will be laid to rest in the Morgan City Cemetery.
Pallbearers will be her son, Gregory Guidry; her brothers, Clyde Rhodes, Nathan Rhodes, Kenneth Rhodes and Kim Rhodes; and her nephews, Brandon Fears and Nick Breaux.
