Dello M. Couvillion
October 8, 1920 – February 5, 2020
In the early hours of February 5, 2020, our loving, gentile, caring mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great grandmother and friend-to-all, Dello Mary Lemoine Couvillion, was met in heaven by the God she praised for all of her days on earth. She was born on October 8th, 1920, seventh of eight children of Samuel Esnar Lemoine and Eugenie Lemoine in Plaucheville, Louisianna on the Bayou Choupic. She is preceded in death by her loving husband of 50 years, Hester Paul Couvillion. After their marriage in November, 1938, they made their home in Baton Rouge, to raise their 8 children. As a devoted and dedicated wife and mother, she spent many years and countless hours volunteering at St. Anthony Church and School, St. Gerard Majella Church and School, and Redemptorist High School. After raising her family, she had a career working for the East Baton Rouge School Board. But she never let that get in the way of a loving care of her family, and many friends. She is survived by her eight children, Judith Couvillion Dias, Kenneth Couvillion (Pippa), Steven Couvillion (Pat), Sandra Couvillion Elder, Esnar (E. J.) Couvillion (Suzanne), Cecil John Couvillion (Gayle), Brent Couvillion (Carolyn), and Eric Couvillion (Linda). Her great legacy will continue to survive through her 23 grandchildren, 47 great-grandchildren, and 18 great-great grandchildren. In heaven she will be reunited with her two granddaughters, Brandi Lynn Couvillion, and Christie Shondelle Elder, her parents, her six siblings and sons-in-law Russell J. Dias and Michael K. Elder. Family and friends are invited to attend a visitation at Greenoaks Funeral Home, on Thursday , February 13th, 2020, from 4:00PM to 8:00PM, with the Rosary to be recited at 7:00PM. A Funeral Mass of Remembrance will be held at St. Gerard Majella Church, on Friday, February 14th, at 12:00PM, following a visitation at the church from 10:15AM to 12:00PM. Following the mass, internment will be at Green Oaks Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations can be made to St. Gerard Majella Church in Baton Rouge, or to The Alzheimer’s Service of the Capital Area, Baton Rouge, LA. The family wishes to extend our sincere thanks to the caregivers at Lake Sherwood Village and especially to Landmark of Baton Rouge and the staff of The Hospice of Baton Rouge for their efforts in making her last months and days as peaceful as possible.

Judy and I want to extend our condolences to all of my wonderful cousins of whom I have so many wonderful memories. Those memories certainly include my beautiful Aunt Dello who was like a second mother to me. She always treated me as one of her own. I was loved, welcomed, fed, and disciplined like one of her kids. I was her godchild and until a few years ago still received a card from her for my birthday. After Judy and I married she accepted Judy as part of her extended family. Judy loved talking to her.
She was a special person who lived life to the fullest, was looked up to by all who knew her and loved her huge family to the moon and back. She will be missed.

Ken, Pippa, Eric, Linda, Travis, and the entire family,
Condolences to all of you and your entire family on the passing of your Mom and grandmother. I checked out all of the wonderful pictures and she was loved by many and will be missed by all of you!
She is at peace and it is obvious that she was well taken care of.
We will keep each and every one of you in our prayers.

To the family, I extend my deepest thoughts, prayers and sympathies.
Aunt Dello was the kindest, loving, generous person. When I was a teenager she would ask mom and dad, (Ryan & Geneva) if I could come spend a few days with them in the city. She and Unc Hester would spoil me. I adored them both.
Her love and caring carried on with me long after I was grown and married.
Rest easy dear Aunt, May God’s light shine upon you!
