Nettie Ann McCloy Acosta, 88, of Morgan City, died peacefully at home surrounded by family on Friday, February 18, 2022. She and her twin sister were born on February 16, 1934 in Morgan City to parents Lena “Belle” and Daniel McCloy.
Nettie was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother and loved her family unconditionally. She was a parishioner of Holy Cross Catholic Church since Holy Cross opened its doors where she was an active member of the choir until her health no longer allowed her to participate. Nettie had a generous spirit and always forgave, and she would give anyone the shirt off her back without reservation. She loved to sing, read, cook for her family, and work in her garden.
Nettie is sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her three sons Daryl Acosta and wife Kathy of Bayou L’Ourse, Bobby Acosta and wife Marilou of Bayou L’Ourse, Gary Acosta and girlfriend Deena Sanders of Morgan City; four grandchildren, Katelyn Acosta Reulet and husband Brett of Sulphur, LA, Tracey Acosta Braud of Berwick, Kristy Acosta and boyfriend Lonnie Stratton of Morgan City, and Joseph Acosta of Morgan City; six great-grandchildren Aubree, River, Avery, Wren, Evangeline, and Cillian; brother Danny McCloy and wife Barbara of Stephensville, best friend and sister-in-law Shirley Acosta Pillsbury and husband Doug of Katy, TX; two nieces Karen Pillsbury of Katy, TX and Gail Pillsbury Presley of Trinity, FL and two nephews Shawn McCloy and wife Electa of Bayou Vista and Kerry McCloy and wife Jeanne of Patterson; special cousins Peggy Acosta of Morgan City, cousin and neighbor Prissy Verret Martin and husband Marty of Morgan City, Roxanne Smith-Parks and husband Boyd of Port Neches, TX, and several cousins, great-nieces, and great-nephews.
She was welcomed home into Heaven by her husband Alvin “Dookie” Acosta, son Peter Acosta, her twin sister Bettie McCloy, mother Lena Belle McCloy, father Daniel Livingston McCloy, and in-laws Hilda Gayon Acosta and Alvin “Pete” Acosta.
Those honored to serve as pallbearers for her services will be Daryl Acosta, Gary Acosta, Brett Reulet, Danny McCloy, Liam McCloy, and Shawn McCloy.
