I was born on February 23,1957 in Monroe, LA to Claudette Craft Mills. I was her second child. I was raised with my sisters Martha LaRue Mills Holloway, Teresa Lavon Mills Beauvais and Janet Elaine Smith Thomas,mostly by our maternal grandmother Lula Maranda Prine Craft.. Through the miracle of DNA, at the age of 60, I found my biological father, John Thomas Fervier, Sr, and family through my brother. John Thomas Fervier, II. Unfortunately, my father died before I got the chance to meet him, but my brother and I speak frequently. My two paternal sisters, Maria and Mary, are no longer living. I married Fletcher C Puderer on September 3, 1982 in Buras, LA. We subsequently had two sons, Ryan, June 9, 1982, and Erich, March 18, 1986. We moved to Amite County,MS in 2006 after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans and surrounding areas. lmpu 06/27/2020
