Aloysia Jean Pecoul Pertuit
On Thursday, September 12, Aloysia Jean Pecoul Peruit, loving wife for 55 years and mother of two children, peacefully graduated to her heavenly home at the age of 72. Her final days were spent surrounded by family and friends.
Aloysia was born November 7, 1946, in New Orleans, Louisiana, to Warren and Aloysia (Latimer) Pecoul. On July 11, 1964, she married her high school sweetheart, Dwight Wade Pertuit, Sr. Together they raised two children, Aloysia and Wade. She enjoyed her retirement from the phone company after over 30 years of service at their Monticello home.
Aloysia loved music and concerts, but Elvis most of all. She was a square dancer and a formidable opponent at Trivial Pursuit and most other games. She had a generous and loving soul as apparent by the many loving friends all across the United States.
Aloysia was preceded in death by her mother, Aloysia (Lois) M. Pecoul, and a grandchild, Alex J. Pertuit. She is survived by her husband, Dwight; her children, Aloysia P. (and husband Kenny) Loyd, and Lt. Col. D. Wade (and wife Patty) Pertuit, Jr.; her father, Warren J. Pecoul, Sr.; her sister, Suzanne (and husband Tyrone) Tansey; her grandchildren, Matthew E. (and wife Kalli) Loyd, Vivienna E. Pertuit, Aloysia M. R. Loyd and Tristan J. Pertuit, and her great-grandson, Emmett A. Loyd.
