Madeline Arceneaux

Madeline Arceneaux, 85, of Port Acres, died Thursday, August 8, 2019, at Harbor Hospice, Beaumont. She was born December 1, 1933, in Franklin, Louisiana, to Joseph Battaglio.

Madeline was a very soft spoken and passive woman that never complained about anything. She was a member of the Altar Society at St. Therese Little Flower Catholic Church. She loved the Houston Astros and enjoyed gardening, sewing, and crocheting. She also liked bowling and playing Yahtzee. She was a woman that was always on the go. Most of all, she enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren. She always told everyone, “be sure and put your coat on”, no matter what the temperature was.

    Sidney, Diana, Kathy and the Arceneaux Family, Michael and I are deeply saddened to hear about the passing of your sweet Mother. She was such a gentle lady; always with a smile on her face and a simple elegance about her. Looking through family photos recently we came upon one of her carrying a very young Michael on her hip. Something she always did to soothe a small child. She was like that.
    Please know that you and all of the family are in our thoughts during this time. May God bless you and hold you in the palm of His hand.
    Angela & Michael Battaglia
