She contributed money to a statue likeness of her as the title character in Evangeline (1929). Upon completion in 1930, the statue was placed beside St. Martin de Tours Catholic Church in St. Martinville, Louisiana. The statue rests on a spot marking the alleged burial place of Emmeline Labiche, whom local lore claims was the inspiration behind Longfellow`s tragic heroine. It has become a popular tourist attraction and is known as "The Evangeline Statue".
She won the Ariel (Mexican Academy Award) three times: on 1946 for Abandonadas, Las (1945); in 1952 for Doña Perfecta (1951) and in 1954 for Niño y la niebla, El (1953).
