Mary Louise (Peranich) Cambre passed away peacefully on Saturday, September 5, 2020 in Metairie. She was 79, a native of DeLisle, MS. After marriage to her high school sweetheart Dee, she moved to make a home and begin her family in New Orleans. Mary spent her life providing for others by way of her dedication to teaching kindergarten early on, and assisting her husband in creating a successful business. She opened and managed a woman’s boutique before transitioning into a 30-year career managing The Second Act boutique with her dear friends. Her passion for conversation and interest in others lent to her flair for quickly making friends. Mary enjoyed cooking, playing bourre’ with her girlfriends, fishing with her husband, and hosting Holiday dinners for her daughters and grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Alfred J. and Annadale Peranich, and brother David Peranich. Survived by her husband Daniel E. Cambre and three daughters, Dale Ann Miller (John) of Bradenton, FL, Andrea’ Woolsey (Edward) of Waggaman, and Hope Webb of Metairie. She is survived by eight grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
Appreciation is extended from the family to Katrina Swilley and Keisha Pugh, as well as Anvoi Hospice for excellent care and cancer guidance.
