Landry.  Together, they were a wonderful example of what a marriage should be - a partnership.  They took care of each other when the other needed them and they were an example of companionship and partnership.  They loved to dance together and loved the 'Tennessee Waltz.'  Ollie understood that whatever she would go through in this thing called life, she could always depend on her favorite Scripture found in Psalm 23: 'The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.'  Above all of the things she loved in this life, nothing compared to the love she had for her family.  She was a beloved wife, mother and grandmother, and will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her, and each life that she touched in her own special way.  She was the daughter of the late Elie Pete and the late Beulah Kiffe Pete.  She is survived by her daughter, Anna Lee Landry Daigle and her husband, Huey, of Berwick; a son, Elmore 'E. J.' Landry and his wife, Nannette, of Salt Lake City, Utah; four sisters, Iris Meranta and her husband, Ernie, and Beulah Borel, all of Bayou Vista, Jeanette Pete of Lafayette and Mable Rulf of Berwick; four grandchildren, Michele Besse, Jena Walthall, Celeste Guidry and Damon Daigle; and seven great-grandchildren.  She was preceded in death by her parents; her loving husband of over 59 years, the late Elmore T. Landry; three brothers, Ira Pete, Horace Pete and Guy Pete; three sisters, Pearl DeHart, Mae DeHart and Irene Pete; and one granddaughter, Danette Daigle.  The family will receive friends from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. today, Oct. 7, 2005, with a rosary to be said at 7 p.m. at Twin City Funeral Home in Morgan City.  Visitation will resume from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 8, 2005.  A Mass of Christian burial will be held at St. Stephen Catholic Church at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 8, 2005, with the Rev. Emmanuel Fernandez officiating.  Interment will be at Berwick Cemetery.
