Dolly Jean Richard Duplantis was born in San Antonio, Texas on April 15, 1947 to the late Lester and Patricia Segura Richard, and was very active in Woodmen of the World. She was a huge fan of Elvis, the New Orleans Saints, and the St. Louis Cardinals. If there was a Cardinals baseball game on TV, she wasn't going anywhere! Her favorite Burger King was the one on Lewis near Hwy. 90 where they all knew and loved her. Dolly also enjoyed playing cards, going to the casino, and reading, but what she cherished most was time spent with her family. She will be deeply missed.
Mrs. Duplantis is survived by a son, Charles Oubre (Joanna) of New Iberia; three daughters, Leslie Crochet (Shane) of Broussard, Cyndi Frawley of New Iberia, and Amy Oubre (companion, David Barndt) of New Iberia; two stepdaughters, Monica Duplantis (companion Travis) of New Iberia, and Jenny LeBlanc (Bret) of New Iberia; a brother, Dean Richard (Theresa) of Broussard; three grandchildren, Trevor Oubre (Tabitha), Bram Frawley, and Bryce Frawley; three step-grandchildren, Madix Russo, Kaleb Deshotel, and Jaxon Laughlin; and numerous godchildren, nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Terry Duplantis; a daughter, Lynn Claire Oubre; stepdaughter, Ashley Duplantis; and a step-grandchild, Ashton Deshotel.
Pallbearers will be Shane Crochet, Trevor Oubre, Glenn Viator, Bryce Frawley, David Barndt, and Seth Richard.
Honorary pallbearers are Dean Richard, Charles Oubre, and Kirk Duplantis.
The family would like to express their heartfelt appreciation to Dollie, Joyce and Legia from Burger King; sitter Tawanna; Rena, Mona and all the ladies at Garden View Assisted Living; and Chaplain Francis Fontenot and the amazing staff of The Carpenter House of St. Joseph Hospice for extraordinary care and compassion.
