The Arnold Family is saddened to announce the peaceful passing of our beloved Mother, Laura Ann Lagarde Arnold in the early morning of October 18th. In her last days she was surrounded by family as she embarked on the next stage of her journey. She led a life of faith, guidance, and compassion. Laura fully embodied those virtues that she instilled in us and demonstrated throughout her life. Laura leaves behind a family that adored her, including five sons, Thomas (Kelli), William (Jennifer), Jeffery (Christy), Lance, and Michael (Mary); 11 grandchildren Emily, Marshall, Allison (Brett ), William (Caroline), Henry, Caitlyn, Jonathan, Catherine, Michael, Caroline, and Charles; and 3 great-grandchildren Eliza, Tristan, and Barry.
She is survived by her siblings Lawrence Lagarde Jr (Charlotte) and Veronica LeBlanc (Douglas).
We take great comfort in knowing that she is now at peace in the embrace of those that went before her, her husband Thomas Arnold, and her parents Lawrence and Veronica Lagarde.
We are grateful for the love and support we have received during this challenging time. Laura touched many lives. Her memory will serve as a constant reminder of the impact one person can have on many. Relatives and friends of the family are invited to attend the Memorial Mass at St. Martha Catholic Church, 2555 Apollo Ave., Harvey, LA on Saturday, November 11, 2023 at 11am. A Memorial Gathering will be held from 9am until 11am. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to our mom's Waveland Parish of St. Clare Catholic Church at stclarewaveland.com.
