Claudia Bacon, age 90, passed away at the Opelousas General Hospital on Thursday, February 17th, 2022. Claudia was a beautiful person who was devoted to Jesus, her church, and her family throughout her life. She was a dedicated granddaughter, daughter, wife, mother, and grandmother. She had a heart for taking care of others in any way that she could and selflessly prayed day and night for others. She lived a full 90 years, overcoming many obstacles along the way. She was always so grateful for the blessings that God granted her, especially for allowing her to be close with her family, spend time with them, remain healthy, and live independently until it was time for her to return home to Jesus. She will be missed dearly by her loving family.
Those left to cherish her memory are her daughter, Kim Sellers (Darrell, Sr.) of Plaucheville; grandchildren, David Sellers (Becky) of Plaucheville, Darrell Sellers, Jr. (Althea) of Marrero, Heather Sherwood (Matt) of Mandeville, and Zoey Sellers of Plaucheville; great-grandchildren, Dominic Sherwood of Mandeville, Beau Louis Sellers of Plaucheville, and Isaac Sherwood of Mandeville; and her sister, Edith Thibodeaux of Marksville.
Those honored to serve as pallbearers will include: Darrell Sellers, Sr., David Sellers, Matt Sherwood, Terryl Saucier, Tommy Ducote, Jake Giroir. The cross bearer will be Beau Louis Sellers.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 54 years, Louis A. Bacon; and her parents, Elgy and Merly Ducote Barron.
