PLAQUEMINE —- A family is trying to come to terms with a harsh reality that a major pileup on I-55 killed their loved one.
Corinne Hebert’s body was found in the wreckage on I-55 Monday evening. “Super fog” is believed to have triggered a 158 vehicle pile up that so far, has killed eight people. That number is expected to increase.
The 21-yr-old from Iberville Parish was a 2020 graduate of St. John High School, and a current student at Aveda Institute in Hammond studying to be an esthetician.
Visitation will be held at Wilbert Funeral Home in Plaquemine on Friday, October 27, 2023, from 5 to 9pm and will resume on Saturday, October 28, 2023, from 9 to 10am. Services will follow at 11am at the Mass of Christian Burial at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Plaquemine.
Her obit read, “Corinne loved to love. She will be remembered for her love of family, laughter and friends. Her laugh was contagious, and she spread joy to everyone she met. Corinne was a bright light in everyone’s life and understood that life is meant to be lived. She never took herself too seriously and lived life to the fullest by enjoying every moment of every day. Corinne was fiercely independent, worked hard and loved harder. Above all else, she loved her family with every fiber of her being and her sweet soul will live on through all of those who were lucky enough to know and love her.”
