Anna Mae Champagne Resweber was a very loving, kindhearted, and generous person. She showed her generosity through her dedication to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and the the Pro-Life Movement. She cherished spending quality time with her devoted husband Paul “Bully” Resweber of 57 years. They enjoyed their life together to the fullest.
She loved fun times at the casino and attending many country music concerts there. Country music was her favorite, she would listen to it for hours, she especially loved George Strait. She always looked forward to the “Saturday night country classics” What made her casino trips and country music concerts the most fun was taking along her children and their spouses. Always about making those precious memories, she made sure the trips were unforgettable.
She was a dedicated New Orleans Saints fan, an LSU Tigers fan and, always, a St. Martinville Tigers fan as she was their 1960 Homecoming Queen. She also loved going to the SMSH volleyball games. She loved going to the camp with her family. And trips to Grand Isle always created those special moments that are kept in the hearts of her children, her grandchildren, her great-grandchildren.
Nothing, absolutely nothing, was more important in her life than family. She loved surrounding herself with so many photos of her family through the years. Family events at her home were warm and welcoming. Love and laughter permeated every family get-together as there was always some jokesters keeping everyone laughing.
Over the years, she began numerous traditions for birthdays and holidays that will always be cherished. She will be remembered for the steadfast unconditional love which she gave her family. She will be immensely missed by them all.
