Pecola Joseph Growe, fondly known as Ms. P, transitioned to her heavenly home on June 7, 2017 at Twin Oaks Nursing and Convalescent home at the age of 93. She was a native of Wallace, La but a longtime resident of New Orleans, La. She was a real example of the phrase "never met a stranger". She loved life and lived it to the fullest, inviting all to join her along the way. Ms. P always referred to herself as "the party girl" because she made all aspects of life a party. She was loved and cherished by many and was more than willing to give love in return. Although she never had any children of her own, she had a host of nieces and nephews who were more than happy to fill in and were always by her side. Following hurricane Katrina, Ms. P found herself back in her hometown. However, she could not sit still in "the country" and moved back to New Orleans as soon as her house became repaired. As she aged, she had many, many friends who assisted with her care and made sure that she lacked nothing. Her dear friend, Ms. Cat, and her family adopted her as their own and ensured that she always had her groceries, haircut, transportation to church and anything else she needed. She later decided to move back to the country where she resided until she took her rest in the Lord. Pecola was preceded in death by her parents Wilson and Alberta Jeffery Joseph, her loving husband, James Growe, her in-laws and nine siblings. She loved the Lord with all her heart and He loved her, blessing her with 93 years of a full life, free of any sickness.
