Blanche Lolita Theresa (Lemoine) Dupuis

1920 - 2018 Obituary Condolences
For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16. Blanche Lolita Theresa Lemoine Dupuis was born January 12, 1920 to Pauline Rosella Bordelon Lemoine and Maxime Joseph Lemoine in San Antonio, Texas. She later returned to Louisiana, where she grew up among family in Marksville. Lolita was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, cousin and friend to many. She passed away into the Kingdom of God on Wednesday, September 5, 2018. Her strong faith carried her through difficult times of her childhood. She later met and married the love of her life, Paul Hampton Dupuis. They shared 56 years of joy and happiness, giving all of us a fine example of true love. Lolita was a longtime member of St. Gerard Majella Catholic Church and later, a founding member of St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church, where she also served on the Ladies Auxiliary Board. Lolita spent 30 years as a business owner and hairdresser. She later retired from a second career at the Credit Bureau of Baton Rouge. But, the most important job in her life was that of devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Those who knew and loved her will remember and miss her big warm ""Lolita Hugs"", her smiling eyes and optimistic view of life. She was a true Southern lady who always welcomed you into her home where there was always something good to eat and to top it off… a cup of coffee. Thank you, Lord, for giving us this wonderful person. A kind, sincere and selfless heart that treasured her family and friends. She was God's Earthly example of how to live life, as she made everyone feel like they were all that mattered. Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all. Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate. Proverbs 31:29-31 She is preceded in death by parents, Pauline Bordelon Lemoine and Maxime Joseph Lemoine and her beloved husband of 56 years, Paul Hampton Dupuis. She is survived by daughter, Joan Evelyn Dupuis Battle and husband, Glenn Roy Battle and son, Richard Dale Dupuis; grandchildren, Michael Glenn Battle and wife, Lisa Lynn Billeaud Battle, Melissa Anne Battle Avery and husband, Collin Gilbert Avery, Richard Bradley Dupuis, Rebecca Ashley Dupuis, Samantha Dawn Dupuis and Alexandra Dale Dupuis, great-grandchildren, Madison Dupuis, Ainsley Glenn Battle, Hampton Senn Avery and Chloe Dupuis. Visitation will take place on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at Resthaven Funeral Home located at 11817 Jefferson Highway Baton Rouge Louisiana 70816. Visitation will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 8 p.m. with a rosary at 7 p.m. The funeral mass will take place on Thursday, September 13, 2018 at 10 am at St. Gerard Majella Catholic Church located at 5354 Plank Road Baton Rouge Louisiana 70805. Visitation at St. Gerard will begin at 9am, preceding the funeral mass. Pallbearers will be Michael Glenn Battle, Collin Gilbert Avery, Danny Lemoine, Jason Lemoine, Brad Dupuis, and Dewey Ponthieu. Honorary pallbearers will be Richard Dale Dupuis and Glenn Roy Battle.
