Sue Larguier Spaht answered the Lord’s call on Wednesday, April 12, 2017 granting heaven the ability to welcome a remarkable, truly one of a kind lady through its gates. And my, oh my, what a celebration it must have been. Sue lived by the verse: Philippians 4:13: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” And to all who knew her, she certainly did just that. She spent her 98-½ years on this earth spreading love and positivity to all who crossed her path. Her boundless energy, joy and appetite to live life to the fullest were apparent at every step of the way. She laughed easy, often and loud. She shared her love of singing with many on special occasions and impromptu moments of splendor. She danced – at parties, at home and in life. She loved her friends and touched their lives in so many ways. Her unique home was always a place for memorable gatherings with meals carefully prepared as only she could do. She identified with red, white and blue as the colors to illustrate her life for their symbol of patriotism, honor, and true vibrancy. She and her beloved husband Homer were avid antique dealers traveling the South for much of their lives together buying bargains and selling high. Oh, did she delight over a deal! In the later years, her backyard sales became famous. She loved her church and God with deep devotion. She lived for her family from day one until the end with every ounce of her being. Sue was predeceased in life by her parents: Sue Cabell and Isidore Larguier IV, her loving husband; Homer Dale Spaht; two brothers: Isidore Larguier V, Calvin Larguier, one sister: Billy Larguier Hamilton and her husband, Fee Hamilton; and a daughter: Kay Elizabeth Spaht Hutchison(John C. Hutchison). She is survived by one sister, Margery Larguier Fabre and her late husband, Clifton Fabre; two sons; Homer Dale Spaht, Jr. and his wife Anita Fife Spaht, Charles William Spaht and his wife Leslie Spaht; a daughter, Susan Louise Spaht, and 11 nieces and nephews. She had 10 grandchildren who fondly called her Mawmaw. They are: Susan Elizabeth Hutchison, Ashley Spaht Reider, Virginia Hutchison Cain and husband Doug Cain, Homer Dale Spaht III, Charles William Spaht, Jr. and wife Kristin Spaht, Holden Coyt Spaht and wife Christa Spaht, John Coyt Hutchison III, Katherine Hutchison Cagle and husband, William Cagle, Abigail Spaht Ricks and husband Jordan Ricks, and William Spaht. She had 6 great grandchildren. And she had a lifelong partner in crime and loyal friend in Robin Hammonds. Sue led a rich and enjoyable social life through her many clubs and organizations such as The Women of First Presbyterian Church and Circle 1, The Telebelles, The Literary Club, The “Fun After Sixty Crowd,” The Foundation for Historical Louisiana and numerous antique dealer associations. When asked what was her secret to a long life, she often answered: “You’ve got to keep your mind and feet moving.” When pressed a bit further, she would smile and say: “And a gin and tonic every now and again helps too.” Through humor, grace, love and strength she blessed us all. If you knew her, she no doubt changed your life for the better. Today, celebrate that everlasting spirit for there will never be another like her. Services will held at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Baton Rouge Saturday, April 15, 2017. Visitation 9 -11 am. Service: 11 am. Burial: Green Oaks Memorial Park. Pallbearers: Homer D. Spaht III, William Spaht, Doug Cain, Coyt Hutchison, John Fabre, Jordan Ricks, Holden Spaht and David Fabre. Honorary Pallbearers: Randy Peterson, Kip Fabre and Calvin Fabre.
