Funeral services celebrating the lives of Anthony Joseph Scelfo, 91, and Shirley Boudreaux Scelfo, 93, will be held Saturday, December 2, 2017, at the Church of the Assumption in Franklin during an 11:30 a.m. Mass of Christian Burial. Following the Mass, Mr. A.J. and Mrs. Shirley will be laid to rest in the Perpetual Park Cemetery Mausoleum. Father Lloyd Benoit will be the Celebrant for the Mass and conduct the services. A gathering of family and friends will be held Saturday at the church from 9:00 a.m. until Mass time at 11:30 a.m., with the Holy rosary being prayed at 10:00 a.m. Serving as pallbearers will be Ryan Breaux, Kevin Credeur, Pheng Nitchin, Richard Fitzgerald, Dana Louviere, and Kenny Scelfo.

They began their life together on October 20, 1946 and just recently celebrated 71 years of marriage. Mr. A.J. was a veteran of the United States Navy, having served during World War II on the island of Okinawa. Following his service in the Navy, he went to work in the family business with his father and brothers, eventually becoming the owner and operator of Frank Scelfo Son Cleaners until retiring. Mrs. Shirley worked in her early years as secretary at E.A. Crowell School until starting a family and choosing to be a stay-at-home mother and homemaker.
