Obituary of Peggy Joyce Kilpatrick Verret
Peggy Joyce Kilpatrick Verret passed away in Slidell, Louisiana on July 27, 2020, just a few days shy of her 94th birthday. She was born to Claude and Nova Kilpatrick and raised on the family farm in rural Tennessee along with four siblings, Thomas, Cecil, Anita, and Philip. Joyce established her home in New Orleans in her early 20’s following a weekend trip where she decided, “This is the city for me!” She often told stories of her early impressions and attraction to the city’s art, food, fashion, warmth, and friendliness of people. She considered herself an adopted native of New Orleans. She met and married her sweetheart, WWII Veteran Joe Verret. Together they raised two children and worked hard to create a full life filled with love and joy.
Joyce is survived by her children Michael J. Verret (Peggy) and Brenda Van Alphen (Richard). She will be dearly missed by her two grandsons, Marc Verret and Quinn Verret (Megan) along with two great-grandchildren, Asher and Luke Verret. She will also be sadly missed by her many nieces and nephews who she loved and appreciated, dear friends, and extended families. She is a retired employee of the New Orleans Sewerage and Water Board and D.H. Holmes.
Joyce is preceded in death by her beloved husband Joseph P. Verret, father of their children and later by her caring companion William B. Remetich, a life-long friend.
A small, private service will be held by the family to commemorate Joyce’s life. She was be laid to rest in Greenwood Cemetery in New Orleans.
