On February 6, 1942, Henry and Albertha Carey Rapp were blessed with their seventh child, Myrza Lee Rapp. She was reared in Vacherie and attended Magnolia Elementary and Magnolia High Schools. In her early years she attended Woodville Baptist Church and was baptized by the late Rev. David Ross.

On February 9, 1969, she was joined in marriage to the late Benjamin Trench. Together, they raised four daughters, Beverly Johnson, Lynette Harris, Tanya Trench Dillard and Tatanisha Trench Harris.

Until her death, on Saturday, January 4, 2020, she was a faithful and dedicated member of the New Horizon Missionary Baptist Church in Vacherie. She served on the Deaconess Board, Pastor’s Aide Committee, Marriage Ministry, Vacation Bible School, Sunday School, and various departments in the church. She also attended and graduated from the Bible College of Kenner. Myrza was also an active member of the 2nd District Missionary Baptist Association and it’s Women’s Auxiliary, and the Community Mission Prayer Group.

Affectionately known to all as “Ma-Ma”, she served her family and community well. Especially with her gumbo, mac & cheese, bread pudding, cakes, and various other dishes. Learning to cook at a later age in life, she was oh so happy to show off her cooking skills.

Her memory will be cherished by her daughters; Beverly Harris Johnson, Lynette Harris, Tanya Trench Dillard (Alfred Blue, Jr.), and Tatanisha (Elroy) Harris; grandchildren; Kellyn (Savannah) Harris, Heidi (Charles) Robinson, Whitnee and Mykayla Jackson, Kiara and Kamrie Dillard, Tiani, Briann and Alaina Harris; brothers; Rev.
