The Saldivar Family, May 27, 2020
My thoughts and prayers are with the Wiewiorowski and Young families today. Your parents were very caring and loving persons. May they rest in peace.
Karen Nelson, May 22, 2020 Dear Tad, Teal and Families, We send our very deepest sympathy to all of you at this most sorrowful time. We were neighbors of your parents on Bristol Place in Aurora Gardens from 1962 until 1969 when we relocated to Mobile for David's new job with IBM. Your Dad and David worked together at the Belle Chasse Lab of Freeport Sulphur Company which would much later become Freeport-McMoran. May your memories bring you comfort and may time bring you the peace of Christ. Our prayers are with you at this very difficult time. God Bless You!
David and Carolyn Schof, May 19, 2020 Mrs. Wiewiorowski was my first grade teacher in 1988, and I was her “favorite.” She may not have used that word, but she definitely made me feel that way, and I returned the love and favoritism every day of the school year. She praised me daily, she complimented my reading, and she was, most definitely, the reason I was a straight-A, Honor Roll student every quarter of the year. I ran into her once, years later (I always thought she was the tallest lady in the whole world), and she *still* made me feel like her favorite. Years later. What a great, magical teacher, and what a privilege to have had her. She will be missed. Love and light to her family. Kristin Dugas, May 19, 2020 Matilde and Tad were dear friends and we will miss them. Matilde was a lady who cared for everyone. This included first-her family (especially her granddaughters), friends, bridge companions. She enjoyed all her interactions, whether family, friends, former students, Freeport employees and their families.
Marilyn & Pierre Burnside , May 19, 2020 Dear Aunt Mathilde, we will always be grateful for your welcoming us to New Orleans with open arms. It was wonderful to be reunited with our American family. It is with great fondness that I will always remember all the time we spent in your home, getting to know you, Grandma Gertrude, Uncle Tad and our cousins. You were helpful in getting us to settle on the Westbank of New Orleans, getting ready for our schools, learning English and becoming members of St. Andrew's Church. Your love and kindness for us was always there and you continued to love our family till the end. We will miss your emails, pictures, updates on your health and comments on all the events going on in our lives. As difficult as it is for Tad and Teal to lose you both within just a couple of days, we get great consolation that you and Uncle Tad will not have to be apart. You are now reunited with your beloved parents, brother Albert, and our parents Edward and Irena. Enjoy your reunion and may you have lots of rounds of heavenly bridge. May your sweet soul rest in peace and the perpetual light of our Lord Jesus shine upon you. Till we meet again, all my love, your niece Maria, husband Mike and our family.
Maria Breaux, May 17, 2020 Separated for a short while, but now TOGETHER FOREVER. Our prayers are with you . Bill and Mary Hebert, May 17, 2020 She was an amazing person and educator. She will be greatly missed. Lynnette Smith, May 16, 2020 Both of our children were fortunate enough to have been taught by her at ICS. She was a great teacher and taught with affection and compassion. The world is a better place today because of the life lessons learned by all of those that she taught. Mary Rose, May 16, 2020 While we had not seen the Wiewiorowski's at the duplicate bridge table for a couple of years because we now play in McKinney and in Indiana, we will never forget their kindness at the bridge table. Beautiful smiles and a happy couple! Our sympathies to M&T's family as they face this difficult time of losing both parents within a few days of each other. Prayers for your peace! Marci & Keith Meyer, May 16, 2020 My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and friends. Mrs. Wiewiorowki taught me at Immaculate school in marrero for 2 years, she was a wonderful and amazing teacher and she will be deeply missed. Sending prayers and hugs.
Melanie Kass , May 15, 2020 Vaya con Dios, Mathilde.
Bob Putfark, May 15, 2020 Mrs. Wiewoirwoski was my youngest child’s first grade teacher at ICS. She was a wonderful teacher, but more than that, the best life example I could’ve ever hoped for! Rest In Peace in Jesus's loving arms!
Susan Naquin , May 15, 2020 I sure miss you! I love you. Enjoy Jesus, you're not hurting anymore.
Pam, May 15, 2020 My name is Gale Byes, you can read my condolence message on Mr. Wiewiorowski’s obituary. I didn’t know him as well as I knew her, only met him on occasion at the office. God Bless you in your loss.
