OPELOUSAS- It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our dear mother, Lorraine Hidalgo Soileau.  She was a homemaker, wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.  She went to meet Jesus peacefully on December 1, 2022 at her home in Opelousas, Louisiana.  She was 92 years old and a native of Opelousas. Lorraine was a devout Roman Catholic and a long time parishioner of St. Landry Catholic Church and then Our Lady Queen of Angels Catholic Church.

She is survived by 3 daughters:  Joan S. Farrar and husband Tony of Church Point;  Katherine (Kitty) S. Wyble of Opelousas;  and Connie S. Speyrer and husband J. Phillip of Rayne;  son:  James Alex Soileau and wife Charlotte of Opelousas;  2 sisters: Elsie Soileau and Betty Deviile, both of Baton Rouge; 9 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.
