Eddie Mae has touched countless lives and was loved by many for her charismatic and gregarious personality. She devoted her entire life helping others while being the “go-to” person for many. Though she was a part of many contributions throughout her life, she was a visionary and enjoyed devoting her time as a Soror to Beta Pi Sigma Sorority, Alpha Zeta Chapter in New Orleans, where she served as Basileus and later became a National Sergeant at Arms.
She will not only be sadly missed by her immediate and extended family of 4 current generations, but also by her Sorors and a host of very close friends, as well as friends in government and in ministry.
