She married John Rolan Bordelon on January 25, 1958 and was a devoted mother, grandmother, and great grandmother who was always ready to lend a helping hand.
Mrs. Bordelon was a long-time member of Macedonia Baptist Church in Effie where she faithfully played the piano for many years. She served as Vacation Bible School leader many times. She taught Sunday School for many years. Mrs. Bordelon served as a substitute teacher at Lafargue High School before moving to Mandeville in 1992.
