Heidi Roundtree Mason, age 70 years, passed away peacefully February 26, 2018 in Vacherie, LA. She was born May 31, 1947 in New Orleans to the late Nell and Larry Roundtree. Loving wife of James S. Mason Sr. of Vacherie. Beloved mother of James S. Mason Jr. (Lonniea) of Anna, TX. Devoted grandmother of Jonathan Mason and Matthew Hardy and great grandmother of Kylee Mason. Sister of the late James and Lawrence Roundtree and Brenda Matherne.
Heidi loved animals, especially her “Mattie Mae” (a 12 pound Maltese). She also enjoyed music and was a wonderful fast dancer. As a matter of fact, her husband Jimmy didn’t like dancing with her because she made him look bad! She also loved good food and walking in the French Quarter, especially around St. Louis Cathedral and along the river. She lived in many beautiful cities in the United States and had dear friends in each, including St. Paul, MN, Des Moines, IA, Cleveland, OH, Longmeadow, MA, Arlington, Galveston, League City and Dallas, TX
