LA on 3/23/46 and raised with her older brothers Paul Voorhies and Ronald Voorhies. Mary Beth attended Mt. Carmel Academy and while there met her future husband Francis Scuddy Plaisance Jr. They were married in 1966 and shared lives together for the next 56 years, much of them at their dream house and farm in Picayune, Mississippi. She endeared herself to her many and varied friends, traveled the world extensively, had great love for music and gardening and found time to earn her bachelor degree in math and history from the University of New Orleans. Mary Beth is survived by her husband Francis Scuddy Plaisance Jr., her son Kevin Michael Plaisance and wife Sarah and their four children Catherine, Michael, Camille
and Caroline and son Paul Francis Plaisance and wife Angi and their three children Alex, James and Lucas. Her grandchildren were her great joy and earned her the position of “Mimi” for the last 25 years. She desired to be cremated and an announcement will follow for friends and family to attend a future memorial service and gathering. While she loved flowers, please instead send donations to St. Michael’s Special School in New Orleans where her mother was a long time employee.
