Obituary for Celeste "Big C" Oubre (Poche)

Celeste “Big C” Oubre, was born on Tuesday March 16, 1943 to the parentage of the late Eugene and Lorenza Poche. Celeste was one of thirteen children. She accepted Christ at the early age of 5 years old and was baptized by the late Rev. Clarence Washington at Morning Star Baptist Church. Celeste had a love and passion for helping others. After completing her post-secondary education at Second Ward, she went on to become a Certified Nursing Assistant, and worked at Lafourche Home for Aged, and later Riverlands Healthcare until she retired in 1999.

Celeste was united in holy matrimony to Elry Oubre, Sr on February 25, 1967. Through this union they were blessed with five children Eldrick Oubre, Dellary Oubre, the late Catina M.

Her unselfish generosity and kindness will be remembered most.
