Mrs. Daigre, 67, of Alexandria, passed away Monday, April 19, 2010, at Christus St. Frances Cabrini Hospital.

Juelie was a 1960 graduate of Cottonport High School. She married Milton Daigre on June 10, 1961, and started her career of motherhood, raising her five children with weekly summer visits to the beach at Indian Creek and all the activities included with school and sports related activities which she never missed.

After 49 years of marriage, she is survived by her husband, Milton and four of their children, Milton (Butch) Daigre and his wife Dana, Rose Marie Daigre, Melissa Daigre, Jennifer Holdiness and husband Sean, as well as her brothers, Kent Juneau and wife Gail and Raynor Juneau. She is also survived by nine grandchildren, Joshua and Hillary Daigre, Jacquelyn, Julie, and Jennifer, Breithaupt, Ryan, Regan, Rylee, and Rivers Holdiness, who will miss their "Grandmere" dearly.

Juelie's passions in life, other than family and her hundreds of friends, included gardening and enjoying the beautiful flowers, birdwatching, especially the doves, cheering at various sporting events and LSU and Saints football. She and her husband were devout Catholics who rarely missed a weekend Mass. Ms. Juelie was a teacher's aide at Prompt Succor Catholic School from 1979 to 1994.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Richard and Myrstice Juneau; her daughter, Kelly Daigre Breithaupt Pistorious, and her infant son, Samuel Louis Daigre.

Visitation will be Thursday, April 22, 2010, at Hixson Brothers, Alexandria, from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. A recitation of the Holy Rosary will be held at 6 p.m. in the funeral home.
