Re: Cause of Death/Obit

In Reply to: Cause of Death/Obit by Bette Beem of 72

Dear Bette,

The Gazette, Ville Platte, Evangeline Parish, LA, is the official parish journal. His obit may appear in The Gazette.

I am a native of Ville Platte. Sometime ago, I read that The Gazette has their newspaper files on microfilm and that The Evangeline Parish Library, Ville Platte, LA was given a gift of the microfilm.

The funeral home that handled his final arrangements should be able to supply a copy of his death certificate. Back then, Ardoin Funeral Home in Ville Platte, was the best known, although there may have been others.
