September 18, 1938 - January 14, 2021
Claudette “Claudy” Normand Long passed away on January 14, 2021 surrounded by family. She was 82 years old. Claudy was born and raised in Mansura, Louisiana by her parents, Lilly and Claude. She married her adored late husband, Francis “Frank” Long, in 1972 and proudly remained by his side until his passing in 2013. Frank and Claudy spent much of their lives together traveling, often with a few of their (many) beloved friends. Claudy was a proud woman who was full of life and always saw her wine glass as half full. She never met a stranger and always had a smile on her face. Claudy was lovingly referred to as “Aunt Claudy” by most, even outside of family. She was known by her (great) nieces and nephews as “the fun Aunt”; her radiant personality was contagious to everyone she met. Though Claudy’s family is deeply saddened by her passing, they take great comfort in knowing that she will continue her legacy as life of the party in a better place. She was preceded in death by her parents, Claude and Lilly Normand; her husband, Francis Long; her sister, Elizabeth Ducote; and her nephew, Mark Ducote. Claudy is survived by her nephews, David Ducote (Nancy) and Kenneth Ducote (Melinda); great nieces, Melanie Belcher (David), Rachel Ducote, and Caroline Ducote; great nephew, Paul Ducote; great-great nephew, Tyler and great-great niece, Kaitlyn.
