Maye Guillot was born on Avoca Island to the late Pierre Ernest and Agnes Arceneaux Molaison and raised by Georgia Arceneaux Thibodaux and L.J. Thibodaux Sr.
Maye became a Christian at a very young age and was a member of the Berwick Methodist Church and then First Assembly of God. She trained her children and grandchildren in the importance of attending and participating in church regularly. Her faith in God defined her life. Momma was a "June Cleaver." Mom always was there when her children got home from school and every day there was a hot meal lovingly prepared. She enjoyed bottle hunting, visiting cemeteries, courthouses and researching genealogy before Ancestery.com was even thought of.
The family would like to thank all the staff at Maison Jardin for the loving care they provided during Maye's last days with us. They provided the assistance she needed while retaining her dignity and a great appreciation goes to the staff of Hospice of South Louisiana.
Maye is survived by her son, Harlan Mount Guillot Jr. and his wife, Barbara Fisher Guillot; her daughter, Nadine Guillot Clark and her husband, William "Tommy" Clark Jr.; her husband, Reginald E. Guillot; one sister, Joyce Thibodeaux Cockerham; and her grandchildren, Benjamin T. Clark and his wife, Christy, Harlan Nicholas Guillot and his wife, Brenda, Emily Clark Berry and her husband, Jason, Dawn Neill, Ronnie Foret and his wife, Danielle, and Denise Barbe and her husband, Mare.
She is also survived by her great-grandchildren, Samuel T. Clark, Ivy, June, Liberty and Daisy Guillot, Keller, Lillian and Whitley Berry, Cade and Caylee Neill, Brianna and Gracie Foret, and Kourtnee and Tyler Matherne.
Maye is preceded in death by both sets of parents; her first husband, Harlan Mount Guillot Sr.; her brothers, Ernest Pierre Molaison, Waddell Thibodaux Sr. and L.J. Thibodaux; and her sister, Beatrice Stevens.
