Biloxi Lions Club Mother of the Year Luncheon

The Biloxi Lions Club is honoring a local woman as the 2016 Mother of the Year.
You could say Biloxi mother Amiee Gatreaux has quite a handful. The mother of six cares for four of her own biological children as well as two adopted special needs children from China. Today, she was named Mother of the Year at the 61st annual Lions Luncheon at the Biloxi Yacht Club.
Gatreaux works at Memorial Hospital in Gulfport and volunteers in the community in her spare time. She tells News 25 she appreciates the honor. “Some of the things I think it is to be a good mom is patience and understanding, humor and flexibility. And absolutely, a joy and a blessing.”
The Mother of the Year says she owes her thanks to her husband, her mother and all the mothers before her.
