When she and her husband, Billy, retired in 1986, they moved from New Orleans to Hide A Way Lake in Carriere, MS, to be near their daughter, Miriam, and her grandchildren. Sometime after Billy died in 2014, she moved in with her widowed daughter, and they spent four wonderful years laughing and enjoying life together. Miriam was also a member of the Knights of Columbus Ladies Auxiliary, Council 6872, Picayune, MS. The last year of her 95 years was spent at Timeless Grace Assisted Living Home in Henleyfield, MS, near Picayune where she received loving care.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Paul Peter Poissenot and America Victoria Borne Poissenot; Cherished wife of William Peter D’Aquin for 68 years; her brothers, Lloyd J. Poissenot, Paul A. Poissenot, and Emile H. Poissenot.
