In the early morning hours of Monday, November 8, 2021, Sherry Bridges Ledet, joined her husband, Beverly Clement Ledet in heaven. Predeceased by her parents Arthur and Gladys Bridges and, most recently her sister Melba Jean Bridges, Sherry was born into this world on December 7, 1937. Almost enduring to her 84th birthday, she is survived by her sister, Jane Williamson, three children and their families, as follows: Mark C. Ledet, her son, his wife Anastaja and their two young children Holden and Rowan. Her first daughter Deborrah L. Yarbrough, her husband Jim and their children and families which includes Mr. and Mrs. James F. and Sarah Yarbrough and their three sons Parker, Fenner, and Harrison. Debbie’s daughter Mrs. Somer Y. Klusman and her husband Mr. Matthew Klusman. Finally, Sherry’s youngest daughter Beverly Catherine Ledet.
Sherry was a long time resident of Morgan City, Louisiana, graduating from Morgan City High School with the class of 1955. Just after high school she worked for First National Bank of St. Mary Parish until her marriage and returned to work after the accidental passing of her husband in 1974. Sherry took pride in her hard work at the bank and participated in multiple raffles and fund raisers, making prizes by decorating dolls and baking cakes and other confections. She retired as Assistant Vice President in Charge of Operations, many years after she began as a bank teller. After retirement she was happy to move to Lake Charles, Louisiana, where it was her great pleasure to help keep her two oldest grandchildren after school until they were old enough to no longer need supervision. Anyone who knew Sherry knew she lived for two things, her grandchildren and New Orleans Saints football.
The family is having a small graveside service and asks that in lieu of flowers to plant trees in her honor using the link below. Finally, in remembrance of Sherry, give the Saints a “Who Dat!” for her during the next Saints game.
