Pansy Armand Goudeau Bonadona was one of the most loving souls to ever grace this planet. She was kind to everyone she met and was active in her religious community.
She had the love of many nephews and nieces and had a child-like wonder of the world which made it fun to be around her. We all loved to visit Aunt Pansy because she lived in the "country". We could feed her sheep, pick pecans and persimmons, and look through her fabulous collection of costume jewelry which was always like a treasure hunt. You never left Pansey's house empty handed. She always loaded you up with all kinds of wonderful trinkets.
Pansy was a loving, caring and generous person. Pansy loved her family and community. She loved to mow her own lawn. She loved her sheep. She loved life. She will be sadly missed but the joyful thoughts of her will remain in our hearts forever, expecially her fun, loving free spirit.
We love you Pansy.
