Obituary

JoAnn Martinez Fontenot, 85, a native of Zwolle, LA and longtime resident of Lake Charles passed from this life on November 10, 2019 in the comfort of her home surrounded by her loved ones.

JoAnn leaves to cherish her memory her loving husband of 67 years, Joseph E. Fontenot; her five loving children: Bobby Fontenot, Debbie Timpa and husband Johnny, Belinda Peloquin and husband Johnny, Steve Fontenot and wife Linda, and Christina Burnum and husband Mike; five siblings: Shirley Ezernack, Buddy Martinez and wife Nell, Carolyn Fulton and husband Ken, Wayne Martinez and wife Pat, and Jimmy Martinez and wife Bonnie; special niece Bonnie Lynn Irion and husband Scott; fourteen grandchildren, thirty great grandchildren, two great-great grandchildren, and a host of nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Herman Joseph Martinez and Louise Quarles Martinez and three siblings, Sybil Daigle, Jeannie Robinson, and Terry Lynn Harris.

Mrs. Fontenot will long be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. She was completely devoted to her family and her faith.
