October 9, 1931 – November 12, 2022
“On November 12, 2022, we lost the matriarch of our family, our 91-year-old mother, Adelina Loo, affectionally known as ‘Mama Loo’. She was a loving mother and a great provider for her family and others. She was a long-time (24 years), valued employee where she was the managing bookkeeper for Schwegmann’s Supermarket. In 1958, this brave woman left behind her home and family of Guatemala speaking no English. It was a proud day when she became a U.S. citizen and she voted regularly until she was 89 years old. She is survived by her seven children, Oskar Armando Loo-Hernandez, Maria Loo-Weaver (Marshall), Charlene Loo-Whatley, Yvonne Evans (Michael), Judith Loo-Day, Doris Roman (Fernando), John Loo (Koni) a myriad of grandchildren, great grandchildren, and countless family and friends. It is a comfort to know that she has reunited with her deceased son, Oscar Loo, in heaven. We were blessed to have known this remarkable woman and have wonderful memories of her life. She touched our hearts and will be forever treasured and missed beyond measure. Her legacy will live on forever. Relatives and friends of the family are invited to attend a Funeral Mass at St. Dominic’s Parish, 775 Harrison Ave., New Orleans, LA on December 3, 2022. Visitation is from 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm with Mass to follow immediately.”See more See Less
