Lillian Angelo Lachica, age 85, passed away peacefully on February 22, 2024 with her daughters by her side. Lillian was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana and later made Chalmette, Louisiana her home, where she raised her family. She started a career with a Leather Workshop in her home and spent weekends at a Booth in the Flea Market. Later she worked for Chef K. Paul Prudhomme as a Supervisor at Magic Seasoning Blends. Then she opened her in-home daycare. She will be fondly remembered by the parents and many children that she loved and cared for as her own. As she was the most loving Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, Cousin and Friend. She was humble and kind with the most beautiful smile. She always made the best of every situation and would extend a helping hand to anyone in need. She was the strongest person we have ever known and she will forever be our hero. She will be deeply missed by her family and friends.
