Louise was blessed with a beautiful family. She was a loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was a blessing in her community and loved all things beautiful. Louise was kind, loving, generous, beautiful, and had a wonderful sense of humor. She loved her family and enjoyed spending quality time with them especially during the holidays. She loved to read, play bridge and was also an excellent cook and enjoyed traveling and her garden, especially the birds therein. Louise was born on Glenwood Plantation, then moved to Albania Plantation in Jeanerette where she lived until she left for college. Louise graduated with a BA in History from Newcomb College in New Orleans. She was a parishioner of St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, Docent at Southdown Museum, and a Terrebonne Parish Medical Auxiliary member. She was truly a southern lady who loved her family and her many friends. A great joy of Louise in her last year of life was the discovery of her nephew Olof Stigert and his family from Sweden. Louise has been reunited with her family who passed before her. She is now reunited with her husband and Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
The Dupont family would like to thank all of her caregivers, Belle Billot, Tish Porche, Beth Porche, Tammy Johnston, Jayme Zeringue, and Bobbie Richard for their love and compassion. The family would also like to thank her housekeeper, Renee Hebert and Melanie who tended her garden.
