King Leland and Queen Shelia Thibodeaux
They have been members since 2013. Shelia serves on the board as secretary and event decorator.
Leland and Shelia both graduated from Alfred M. Barbe High School. Leland in 1978 and Shelia in 1981, they were high school sweethearts. They have known each other for 40 years and married for 38.
Leland has worked for Entergy for 31 years; his current position is scheduler over Nisco plant. Shelia gave up her day job in 2002 so that she could live the dream, she became a full-time wife, mother and best of all a grandmother.
They have two children that they are very proud of, Michael Thibodeaux (married to Amy) and Sara Henderson (married to Brett). They have been blessed with two beautiful grandchildren Keaton Cormie and Hannah Thibodeaux. If you ask either one they will proudly tell you all about their children and grandchildren, they hold the keys to their heart!
Leland and Shelia love to spend time at Perch Haven, that is their camp and serenity. They enjoy sharing a drink and a good story while sitting around the firepit with family and friends. Fishing is one of their favorite hobbies, followed by hunting, dancing, a new adventure, traveling and meeting new people.
They have said that over the last several years that today is the day you live, the day you love and the moment you seize. Life is a gift and a gift we love to share with each other!
We were very fortunate to serve with such an amazing group of friends, which we prefer to call family,
The Royal court in which we served with was Sally and Tom Sawyer, Duchess and Duke of Whenever. Gail Toups and Pete LeRoy, Duchess and Duke of Whatever. Leslie and Matt Peterson, Duchess and Duke of Wherever.
