Funeral services celebrating the life of Anna Bell Robison Mendoza will be held Friday, November 3, 2017, at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church in Baldwin during a 12:00 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial. Following the Mass she will be laid to rest in the Sacred Heart Cemetery Mausoleum. Father Cedric Sonnier will be the Celebrant for the Mass and conduct the services. Serving as pallbearers will be her six grandsons, Jack, James, and Ryan Ruskoski, Steven Burgess, and Nick and Jesse Mendoza. A gathering of family and friends will begin at 9:00 a.m. with the Holy Rosary being prayed at 10:00 a.m.
Anna Bell was a native of Evangeline and an 85 year resident of Baldwin who passed away peacefully at the age of 92 surrounded by her family at her home on Sunday, October 29, 2017. She was a devout Catholic who attended Mass as often as possible and prayed the rosary several times a day. Bell loved people and never met a stranger. She loved her part-time job at the St. Mary Parish Courthouse where she worked as a switchboard operator for 28 years, and looked forward to all the girls in the courthouse taking their coffee breaks with her. She devoted her entire life to her husband, children, and grandchildren, always putting their needs before hers. She loved working in her yard and was still cutting her grass well into her 80's. She did beautiful Crochet work, loved her morning newspapers, working crossword puzzles, and watching her game shows.
Survivors include four children, Susan M. Lanclos, Brenda M. Ruskoski and her husband Ronnie, Marilyn M. Burgess and her husband Cliff, and Brad J. Mendoza and his wife Sandy; ten grandchildren, Lisa L. Champagne and her husband Jimmy, Taren Ruskoski Boutte and her husband Blake, Jack Ruskoski and his companion Debbie Cordy, James Ruskoski and his wife Betty, Ryan Ruskoski and his wife Rebecca, Steven Burgess and his wife Maria, Ashley Spivey and her husband Montie, Nick Mendoza, Jesse Mendoza and his wife Maegan, and Katie Mendoza and her companion Nick Courville; 16 great grandchildren; three great great grandchildren; one sister, Georgie Estelle Jaques; a very special friend, Rose Marie Hoyt Weber; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 71 years, Chelly P. Mendoza; an infant daughter, Toni Marie Mendoza; an infant son; Chelly P. Mendoza Jr.; her parents, Lige Robison and Bella Marie Parr Robison; four brothers, Lige Robison and his wife Nelwyn, Douglas Bennett Robison and his wife Ruth, Robert Ray "Bobby" Robison and his wife Evelyn, and Norman Leroy Robison and his wife Margie; and one sister, Sadie Helen Robison LaGrange and her husband Sterling.
The family would like to express their deepest gratitude to her devoted caregiver, Mona Adams, for her loving and compassionate care given to Bell, as well as to Dr. Roland Degeyter and staff, the staff of Franklin Foundation Hospital, and the staff of Heart of Hospice.
