Martina Navarre

January 29, 1950 — December 10, 2021

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Friday, December 17, 2021 at 10:00 am in the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist for Martina Navarre, 71, who passed away on December 10, 2021 at Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center. Father Chester Arceneaux, rector of St. John, will be the celebrant of the mass and conduct the funeral services. Marie Scott will be the lector for the service. Gift bearers are Nigel and Jeremiah Navarre. Interment will follow in St. John Cemetery.

Visitation will be held from 8:00 - 9:30 at Walters Funeral Home on Friday morning.

Martina was the second child of Pauline M. Navarre and George A. Navarre. She was preceded in death by her parents; maternal grandparents, Mable Coco Francis and Joseph Able Francis, Sr.; paternal grandparents, Ileen Navarre and Smallen J. Navarre Sr.; and her brother, Gerard P. Navarre.

She is survived by two sisters, Joanne Navarre and Justina Ina; one brother, Louis Navarre and his wife Maxine; and a host of nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and nephews.

Martina graduated from St. Paul Elementary and went on to graduate from Holy Rosary Institute (HRI) in 1968. After graduation, Martina entered the workforce in sales.

She was an excellent cook and baker. She specialized in baking cakes and cookies for family and friends. Martina was the family historian, researching documents to keep the family ancestry thriving. But most of all, Martina will be remembered as a woman of prayer. She carried her rosary with her everywhere she went, and prayed several times a day for the end of poverty, cancer, violence, and the Covid pandemic.

Serving as Active Pall Bearers are Nicholas Navarre, Justin Bob, Oliver Navarre, Stuart Bob, James Michael Ina, Kevin Anderson, and Jeremiah Navarre. Honorary Pall Bearers will be Louis Navarre, Quentin Ina, Quentin Prejean, Jonathan Navarre, and Joshua Broussard.

The family extends its sincerest thanks to everyone who made a phone call, sent a card, said a prayer, shared a memory, or sent their own expression of condolence for the passing of Martina. Special thanks are also given to the doctors, nurses, and staff of the third floor Intensive Care Unit at  Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center for their compassionate care given to Martina during her illness.
