Laura Ann Guidry Montondon

December 8, 1983 - September 22, 2022

Laura Ann Guidry Montondon, 38, of LaBelle, died Thursday, September 22, 2022. She was born December 8, 1983, in Port Arthur, to Phyllis and Jerry Guidry.

Laura graduated from Port Neches – Groves High School in 2002 where she was a cheerleader and an Indianette.  She graduated from Lamar University in 2005 with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting and from Lamar University in 2007 with a master’s degree in Business Administration.  She was employed by Linn Energy in Houston in 2007 as an accountant and remained there until her move with Mickey back to this area in 2017.

Laura and Mickey were married March 28, 2009 at St Elizabeth Catholic Church.  They were both hard workers, adventurous, loved to travel, loved dogs, loved family, loved life and most importantly, loved each other.

They were blessed in 2018 with the arrival of the love of their life, Mason Bernard Montondon.  Their love for him is immeasurable.  Mason was blessed to have had this time with Laura, she was his world.  Her influence on him will last a lifetime. He will grow up to know what an amazing woman she was.

Laura had so many friends, family, teachers, and co-workers that have shared some thoughts about her.  Such as, “she was more beautiful on the inside than she was on the outside”, “she was a highly respected, intelligent, and admired employee”, “she was Mickey’s rock”, “she was fiercely protective of her younger brother, Brent”, “she made bags for the homeless and for their dogs, kept them in her car and handed them out no matter where she was”, “she was creative and talented”, “she was the first to volunteer to do anything for anyone”, “she was the ultimate mama bear”, and “she was the most unbelievably amazing cook”.

Laura was not only loved and adored by her own family and by Mickey, but she was also loved and adored by Mickey’s entire family…what a blessing.

Survivors include her husband, Mickey Bernard Montondon, II; son, Mason Bernard Montondon; parents, Jerry and Phyllis Andrepont Guidry of Port Neches; mother-in-law, Donna Green; father-in-law, Mickey Bernard Montondon and wife, Cindy; brother, Brent and wife, Tia Guidry, and sons, Camden, Cayson, and Cole Schjott, of Ponce de Leon, Florida; sister-in-law, Miranda and Korey Arceneaux and son, Breck Paul Arceneaux; aunts, Kay and Kirk Hebert of Brentwood, Tennessee; Joanie Romero of Houston; Carol Andrepont of Katy; Colleen and Bill Avery of Port Arthur, and Tammy McGee Quisenberry; uncles, Joe and Angela Andrepont of Nome and Timothy McGee and Lisa; grandparents, Ray and Susan Guidry of Texas City; cousins, Lance, Andrea, Ross, Matt, Jeff, Clint, Michael, Christopher, Brad, Deborah, Kevin, and Monique; and numerous relatives, extended family, friends, and her loyal dog, Moose.

    Laura,
    You were Pawpaw’s first granddaughter, the first to graduate high school, & college. You made him so proud of the woman and mother you became. I’m so thankful for the all the memories with you and your brother growing up because you and Brent were the two that I had always looked up to to make something of myself. I remember all the family trips we’d make from ski trips, to going to sea world, to the Guidry family reunions in Beaumont and Christmas at Nannie’s. I’ll never forget when pawpaw got your first vehicle with that big red bow wrapped on it, I’ll never forget the day you and a Mickey got married you were so beautiful. Your love for Mason will continue. You were truly an incredible woman and mom, fly high beautiful angel your no longer suffering. Until we meet again. ❤️

    Scarlett Garsea says:

    My prayers and thoughts are with all the family, especially Mickey and Mason. May Our Lord hold you both, near him during this very difficult and sad time.
    May Laura Rest In Peace

    Tina says:

    There are many lovely words to describe Laura, but, kind and pleasant come to mind first. Any conversation I had with Laura she was always very present. She was thoughtful enough to ask about my life and patient enough to listen.
    I can recall a silly grin on her face when speaking about her dad, Jerry. A profound love when sharing anything about her mom and a typical grin and child like laugh when sharing stories about Brent.
    I was 6 when they moved next door. I was the little sister when she and Amber taught us ballet classes in the garage. I’m so glad they included us, because those childhood memories run vividly in my mind. And I’m glad those are the ones I have with Laura. Laura’s character was so gentle and caring . This was the case even in our conversations in the last few years. She was so, so proud to be Mason’s mom. What a light he was to her. She truly glowed when talking about him. She loved him deeply. I know Mickey, Mason, Phyllis Jerry and Brent will miss her terribly. Praying the many good memories and a peace from God will carry them through this.

    Our deepest sympathy and condolences to the family at this sad time. May God comfort you and carry you. Rest In Peace Laura.

    Paige (Cliett) LeBlanc says:

    Laura was always such a kind person, and I loved getting to know her while we were in Indianettes together. Everyone loved her sweet spirit. My heart breaks for her family, continued prayers for you all.

    Ashley Boehme Jost says:

    Laura,
    Although our moms and aunts were close, our family was so large and we were not as close. (as third cousins) I’m so thankful for the part you played in my life. Moving to a town where you’re born into friends is a difficult thing, especially moving there in 8th grade. At one of the most difficult times in my life, you were so welcoming and warm, introducing me to your friends when I had none. You gave me happiness when I was down. I will never forget your kindness and love. I wish we had stayed in contact as adults because I can tell you grew into an incredible woman and mom, but I know we’ll meet again one day. Kiss MaMa & PaPa for me!
    Ashley.

    Lainey Hanna says:

    Laura was one of the sweetest people you would have ever met. She was always willing to lend a hand, make a dessert, or help bring your kiddo to practice. I was lucky enough to have her in my neighborhood and as a friend. Her smile was infectious as well as her love for others. I pray for her family during this time. I know Mason has the most amazing guardian angel to watch over him.

    Veronica Guidry says:

    I was blessed in this lifetime to know Laura. I was struck by how she watched out for her brother Brent, even thou they were just a year apart. She was such a loving being, it seemed to radiate from her. I know that her celestial neighborhood will be lit up like a Christmas tree now that her beautiful loving soul has arrived.

    Jessica Norton Gentry says:

    My sweet Laura. I have so much to say, but I’m at a loss for words. We shared so many memories together, and I’ll forever treasure each one. Although we lost touch, you were like a sister to me for so many years. I’ll be forever grateful for the few times we caught up in Houston. No matter how much time had passed, we could always pick up where we left off. I remember how excited you were to become a mother to Mason. You were “absolutely loving being a mommy, and that Mason was getting so big!” My heart is full of guilt for never making that play date happen. I know you’re looking over Mason now, smiling and sending him so much love. Laura you were a beautiful soul, inside and out, and you’re going to be missed by many. I’ll always be grateful for our friendship and the memories we shared. Love you always.

    Bobbie Rice says:

    I was there when you got married and remember thinking you were absolutely gorgeous walking down that Aisle and thinking how lucky Mickey was to find you! Thru your mother in law, Donna I knew how truly beautiful you were inside and out! She adored you and told me many times about your love for Mason and his for you! Reading all these comments I pray you knew how much you were truly loved and admired! What a blessing you were in your short life to everyone you touch, especially Mason! He will definitely know how much his Mommy loved him! To close your eyes in death is to open them in the presence of the Lord! Rest In Peace Laura! You are so loved and will be missed until we see you again! Prayers for your family!

    Suzie & Jimmy Tweedel says:

    We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. May God wrap his healing arms around you all and bring you peace.
    All our ❤️ love!

    Prayers of comfort and peace..The love Laura gave is enduring through eternity. Blessed to have known her….BIG HUGS, Phyllis.

    I’ll lend you for a little while a child of mine God said .. For you to love the while she lives and mourn for when she’s dead. It may be six or seven years or forty two or three .. But will you ’til I call her back take care of her for Me? She’ll bring her ways to gladden you and should her stay be brief .. You’ll always have her memories as a solace for your grief. I cannot promise she will stay as all from earth return .. But there are lessons taught below that I want you all to learn. I’ve looked this whole world over in My search for students true .. And from the folks that crown life’s lane I have chosen you. Now will you give her all your love nor think labor vain .. Nor hate Me when I come to take this lent child back again? I fancied that I heard them say Dear Lord Thy Will be done .. For all the joys Thy child will bring the risk of grief we’ll run. We’ll shelter her with tenderness we’ll love her while we may .. And just for having loved him forever grateful stay. – Edgar A. Guest

    Deborah Jones - cousin says:

    “Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.” Matthew 5:4. For Mason had such a beautiful and talented mother for she will not now be here in the flesh but as a guiding angel through the rest of his life. May GOD watch over and embrace all of this family as they continue to mourn the loss of my cousin Laura –

    Kimberly Hughes Martinez says:

    My heart absolutely breaks for you Phyllis. May God wrap His loving arms around you and comfort you. May you find peace in knowing that this is our temporary home and one day you will be reunited with Laura again 🙏🏼❤️ Love you SIC

    Dana Guidry says:

    Laura’s love will stay with me forever. I was not only blessed with the best big brothers but also their wives. She took me like I was her little sister and never thought twice about it.

    Stacey Laurents says:

    Laura was a gem! I was lucky to know her in various stages of life- high school, MBA program, and professionally. Catching up with Laura was always so easy and it felt like no time had passed. Beautiful inside and out! She had the biggest heart and best smile, and she loved her family so much. Sending you lots of love.

    Ada Calcote Steward says:

    A Beautiful Soul is Never Forgotten….My deepest sympathy to Laura’s husband Mickey, Jerry & Phyllis, Brent, Lil Mason, and the entire family…..Rest in Heavenly Peace Beautiful Angel….

    Amber says:

    I am so lucky to have met Laura. To know her was to love her. She loved with her whole heart and helped anyone she could. I met Laura our first day of kindergarten and we walked together for graduation. I will always cherish every memory we made along the way. She touched everyone’s heart and I’ll be forever grateful God placed her in my life.

    My heart breaks for Laura’s family. She was an amazing person. She was always so sweet to me growing up, even if I was the little sister tagging along. I’ll always remember her sweet soul. Her family is in my thoughts and prayers.

    ALETHA L JACKSON says:

    So sorry for this family’s loss. Where there is great love, there is deep grief. I pray the Lord wraps all who mourn Laura in His arms and gives them the strength that is needed to survive this loss. Second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour and day by day may you feel her love for you in your hearts.

    Melissa Thomas says:

    This breaks my heart to hear. I graduated with Laura.
    We were not close friends, but she was always very kind to me when we spoke. She was truly beautiful inside and out. Praying for her family during this difficult time.

    Tricia Rae says:

    I’m completely heartbroken. Laura was so beautiful inside and out. She always stood up for the underdog because that was her sweet nature. She’s one of those people that when you met her, you never forgot her. I’m sorry for the families loss and I will keep you all in my prayers.

    Ashlynn Ivy says:

    Laura was a quiet spirit with such a sweet soul. I haven’t seen her since high school, but I’m so saddened to hear of her passing. Sending peace to all who loved her.

    Holly Kiegel (Hardin) says:

    I’m heartbroken to lose a classmate, especially Laura. If you knew Laura, you knew her sweetness. She had the most beautiful smile. You will be missed. I am so sorry, friend.

    Cori Lira says:

    Oh sweet Laura, my heart just breaks for so many reasons. I love and miss our middle school and high school days so much, those were the best! We always had so much fun together, I wish I would have stayed in better touch over the years. But I know you have touched so many lives and your sweet memory will carry on. Prayers for Mickey, all of your family and your little boy, I know your love and kind heart will guide and be with him always. I wish you peace my sweet friend!

    Cecile Hughes says:

    There are no words that can describe the sympathy I am feeling for y’all. Laura was part of our family during their young and innocent lives. Dickie still talks about all the fun things we did with that group of girls….from switching houses for the weekend to taking them caroling on the lighted low boy. May God wrap his arms around you and your family . I pray for your healing and peace. 💜💜🙏🏼🙏🏼

    Racheal Hughes says:

    My heart is broken, as many others are. Laura was so beautiful inside and out! She had one of the kindest souls. I will be forever grateful for all the memories with her. As kids, doing house swaps (which to this day is one of my parents favorite stories to tell) cheerleading, dance…the list goes on. My thoughts and prayers go out to all that are hurting right now.

    LINDA VALYAN says:

    Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord, and may the perpetual light shine upon her.

    My profound condolences to the family. Phyllis, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Donna Green says:

    My heart is broken I had so much Love for my Daughter in Law . I will miss you for the rest of my days and, will see you in heaven for sure. Thank you for my adorable grandson Mason and I will make sure he never forgets what a wonderful mommy you were to him.
    You were a diamond always to me💔💔…………Nonna

    Dee Phillips says:

    I so vividly recall receiving a call while in Houston with a friend that was hospitalized from an excited mother, Phyllis saying “we have a beautiful baby girl naming her Laura! She is so beautiful and we are so blessed. Phyllis was sharing this news with me and her boss, Carolyn who we lost 1 week later to cancer. Everyone celebrated this gift from God to Phyllis & Jerry. She grew into a beautiful young woman that has been taken absolutely too quickly but she leaves a GREAT BIG PIECE OF HER HEART AND LIFE with all to love, a fine handsome son (grandson to some, nephew to others – A BUNDLE OF LOVE TO ALL)! Laura will be greatly missed but she lives on in that precious baby Boy given to her & Mickey like God gave Laura to Jerry & Phyllis! ALL PERFECT GIFTS ARE FROM ABOVE! Laura is in the hands of a loving God who was her creator! Prayers for all!
