Surget was known in Natchez for catering unique events and was a fantastic cook. Her loved ones have fond memories of her special culinary skills when she would prepare delicious dishes and desserts for family gatherings. Surget was also an avid gardener. Her green thumb resulted in an abundance of produce, spices, and herbs.

She will be dearly missed by all who loved her.

Surget wanted no memorial service, and the Family kindly asks for privacy as they grieve.
