Connie T. Cambre

February 1, 1948 – March 31, 2019
Connie T. Cambre passed away on Sunday, March 31, 2019 at the age of 71. Beloved wife of Philip J. Cambre, loving mother of Christopher and Adam. She showed her love through her actions and presence to her grandchildren who loved her dearly: Justin, Abigail, Owen, Sarah Rose, Juliette and Genevieve.
She was born in Crystal Springs, MS and was a resident of LaPlace, LA. Connie was a Catholic Educator who taught at various schools in the River Parishes. Connie was a true LSU Golden Girl, not only because of her days at LSU…she was a beacon of golden light to all who crossed her path. Her strength and positive attitude as she battled diabetes, cardiac issues and Parkinson’s, was inspiring. She will be greatly missed in physical presence, but the values she exemplified and the love she shared, have been forever instilled in her family, friends, and students.

A note from Mrs. Jayashree Rao

“Dear Bonnie and rest of the group,
Jerry gave me the card you had sent for my dear husband that was written in September.
I want you all to know that he cared about each and every one of his patients. For Jay there was no distinction between his patients, friends and his family. He had unlimited love and compassion to everyone he came in contact with. We are all lucky to have known him and loved by him. I miss him terribly and I know that you do as well.
Our best hope to keep his memory alive is to channel him with a smile, the twinkle in the eyes and the enormous good cheer and hope he created in people around him.
Thank you again for the lovely card and the warmhearted sentiments.
It means a lot to me that you have me and our family in your thoughts and prayers.
Much love,
