Memorial services celebrating the life of Elizabeth Morey Fleury Romero will be held on Saturday, October 3, 2015, at Trinity Episcopal Church in Morgan City with Holy Eucharist beginning at 1:00 PM, reception to follow at Fleury Hall. Elizabeth passed away peacefully on Monday, June 29, 2015, at her residence in Patterson, Louisiana.

Elizabeth was born in Patterson on January 21, 1926. She graduated as co-valedictorian of Franklin High School before going on to Southwestern Louisiana Institute (UL) in Lafayette, LA where she graduated cum laude with a degree in Business Administration. She worked for Humble Oil & Refinery Company in New Orleans, later transferring to Exxon Refinery in Baton Rouge. In 1957, she worked for Humble Oil in Los Angeles, CA, where she enjoyed many happy days with her friends and bosses.

The true love of Elizabeth's life was her Lord and her church in His service at Trinity Episcopal Church where she served as secretary to the rector, choir member and choirmaster for over fifty-two years, acolyte trainer, and president of the Episcopal Church Women. In 2007, Elizabeth was recognized as Honored Woman in the Episcopal Church Women for the Diocese of Louisiana. A special day was set aside to honor Elizabeth at the church on October 7, 2007. In 2012, the parish hall was named in her honor – Fleury Hall.

Elizabeth delighted in music, especially opera and choral music, drama, grand and light drama, ballet, and cooking from old family recipes. She also took pleasure in gardening, both house plants and outdoor plants. Other enjoyments were traveling and genealogy. She especially relished trips to London, England to visit with her daughter, Ann.

Elizabeth served as a leader for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts in Patterson. One of her objectives as a Girl Scout leader was to expose her girls to different cultures and places of interest outside their home towns. In her twenty years of girl scouting, she planned five out-of-state trips including on to the nation's capital and another to the home of the Girl Scout founder in Savannah, Georgia. Four girls were awarded "wider opportunity" trips to four states. Individual girl scouts, as well as Elizabeth, visited Girl Scout International Centers in Mexico, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, and India. She received an award from the Southeast Louisiana Council in New Orleans in 1978 in appreciation for her interest and support of Girl Scouting.

Up to the present time, Elizabeth was an active member of the Patterson Protestant Cemetery Association's board since its inception in 1967.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Lionel J. Fleury and Bessie Morey Fleury; and her dear cousin Emma Lou Lassus Rogers, who was more like a sister than a first cousin. She was also preceded in death by her only other first cousin, Danielle Fleury Cambre.

Elizabeth is survived by her son, David Glen Romero and his wife Constance; her daughter, Ann Elizabeth Romero Rajgopaul and her husband Barath; and one granddaughter, Haifleigh Elizabeth Morey Shivers.

Elizabeth's children extend grateful thanks to Dr. Mistie Charlemagne and staff, Dr. David Patten and staff, and her aids, Susan Bennett, Edna Woods, Sheila Bailey, and Brenda Hilliard.
