E.J. Fielding Funeral Home


Mildred Duffy Bossetta of Mandeville, LA passed away on Wednesday, August 14, 2019. She was born on October 16, 1929 in New Orleans, LA to Edward and Jessica (Wilson) Duffy.

Mildred is survived by her children Barbara L. Bossetta, Mary Ann Bossetta, Michael J. Bossetta, Sr., Bonnie Bossetta Lavie (Chip), Patrick R. Bossetta (Marlene), Kathleen Bossetta Levine (Kenneth) and Brian J. Bossetta (Caroline); her 19 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her sisters Anna Duffy Rowe and Ruth Duffy Fisher and numerous nieces and nephews.

Mildred is preceded in death by her beloved husband of 51 years Judge Joseph Robert Bossetta; her siblings Mary Elizabeth Duffy, Mark Duffy, and James Duffy; and her parents.

Mildred loved music and art. She graduated from Loyola with a music degree in 1951 and during her time at Loyola after World War II performed with The Rythmetts, an Andrew Sisters-like trio, with fellow Wolf Pack sisters and lifelong friends May Glo Schilleci and Marie Lillo. Mildred also taught piano throughout her life and in her later years expressed her creativity and love of art by taking up painting.

Throughout her life, Mildred remained a devout Roman Catholic who, like her husband, loved the Church. As a member of the Greatest Generation, she also loved America and instilled in all of her children her love of God and country. But more than anything, Mildred loved her family. She was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, sister and friend. She leaves the world a better, more loving place.

All funeral services will be private. Interment will follow the services in St. Joseph Abbey Cemetery, Saint Benedict, LA. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in memory of Mrs. Bossetta may be made to National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Donations may be made at https://www.nationalmssociety.org/Donate.
