On the morning of September 13, 2017, our beloved, wonderful mother and “Memere” peacefully went to heaven. We now have a special angel to watch over us forever.

“Miss Betty” was a devoted and loving wife to the late William August Michaelis, Jr. Mother of Kay “Missy” Michaelis Taylor (Barry) and Dr. William August Michaelis, III. (Leslie) and adored by her grandchildren: Molly Taylor, Sam Taylor, Shawn Taylor, John Michaelis, Elise Michaelis, and Reid Michaelis.

Beverly Marguerite Vigneaux Michaelis was a native New Orleanian, born on March 26, 1925 to the late Delia Bertus Vigneaux and Achilles Vigneaux. A graduate of St. Joseph’s Academy, Miss Betty worked as a bookkeeper at Interstate Electric and touched many lives during her years as Secretary to the Principal at Cabrini High School. Her strong faith, selfless service and charitable acts were examples to all. She implicitly trusted God’s plan for her life and had a lifelong devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Blessed Virgin Mary.

Miss Betty will be missed by all, but we are thankful for 92 years with her and celebrate her life and gifts, knowing that she is rejoicing with Our Lord, Jesus Christ. Her values, love and faith will live on forever in each of us.
