Danna Mae Pellerin Bogan, a native and lifelong resident of Verdunville, passed from this life into eternity at the age of 82 on Tuesday, February 1, 2022, at Franklin Foundation Hospital.
Danna Mae was born on June 16, 1939 and was the fourth of six children born to Conley and Irene Pellerin. At age 18, she married the love of her life, McDonald Bogan, and the two were blessed with four children. A devout Catholic, Danna Mae treasured and nourished her faith, attending Mass faithfully and praying countless rosaries. She spent her entire life devoted to the care of others, working first for Franklin Foundation Hospital, then for Dr. Musso, and finally for Teche Action Clinic where she recently retired. She enjoyed all that life had to offer: church Bingo, margaritas, and visiting with countless friends and family, to name a few. But her greatest joy in life was by far her family whom she deeply loved, especially her grandbabies.
Her memory will forever be cherished in the hearts of her three daughters, Deiedra “DeDe” B. Paul and husband Melvin, Dale B. Alfred and husband Mark, and Donna B. Simon and husband Cole; five grandchildren, Sonya Paul Smith and husband Shaun, Damien Paul, Tommy D. Morgan Jr. and wife Shequina, Meg Morgan, Olivia Brown and her dog Charlie, and Lauren Simon Derouen and husband Trey; eight great grandchildren, Chloe Paul, Corynne Smith, Brynn Sanders, Vivian Sanders, Joseph “JoJo” Paul, Tymberlei Morgan, Tommy Morgan III, and Sezzi Derouen; three siblings, Verdina Pellerin Coburn, Bernard Pellerin, and Dolly Pellerin Burgess; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
She was preceded in death by her husband, McDonald Joseph Bogan; her son, Derrick Fitzgerald Bogan; her parents, Conley Pellerin Sr. and Irene Senette Pellerin; and two siblings, Conley Pellerin Jr. and Delores Pellerin Boudreaux.
Funeral services will be held Saturday, February 5, 2022, at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Verdunville during a 10:00 a.m. Mass of Christian Burial.
