A Mass of Christian Burial for Noamie Rabalais Clopton will be at 11:00 am, Tuesday, June 7, 2011 at Church of the Little Flower in Evergreen. Burial will be in Bayou Rouge Cemetery under the direction of Melancon Funeral Home, Bunkie.

Noamie Rabalais Clopton, 80, beloved wife and mother and long time resident of Evergreen, succumbed in death after an arduous illness on Sunday, June 5, 2011 at Grace Home Hospice in Alexandria.

Noamie was preceded in death just ten short weeks ago by her life-long sweetheart and husband of sixty years, Clarence L. Clopton. She is also preceded in death by her parents, Moise and Annie Bamber Rabalais; her sisters, Laura Hattre, Pearl Firmin, Ethel Stark , and Edola Firmin; her brothers, Henry Pierce, and Frank Rabelais; her daughter, Sharon Clopton Montalbano, and her grandson, Brandon Clopton.

She is survived by three daughters, Sheila Clopton Richard of Baton Rouge, Dawn Clopton of Evergreen , and Karla Clopton-Jones of Laplace; two sons, Terry Clopton of Folsom and Joel Clopton of Hessmer; and one sister, Mae Rose Poret of Mansura. They were blessed with fifteen grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren, with one on the way.

Noamie will be most remembered for the fervent care giving she showered on her family and friends. We were all blessed by her loving comfort and as her life-long sweetheart once said, "She is the wind beneath our wings."

Visitation will be at Melancon Funeral Home on Monday, June 6, 2011 from 5 pm - 9 pm with a Vigil of the Deceased at 7 pm and on Tuesday, June 7, 2011 from 8 am - 10:30 am. Please share sympathies, condolences and memories at
