NEW IBERIA – A memorial service celebrating the life of Barbara D. “Bobbie” Waguespack will be held Saturday, June 30, 2018 at Evangeline Funeral Home. Fr. William Blanda, Pastor of St. Peter’s Catholic Church, will officiate.
A gathering of family and friends will be held at Evangeline Funeral Home on Saturday from 8:00 am until time of services.
Barbara was born March 2, 1939 in Lafayette to the late Martin Doucet and the late Lelia Robin Doucet, and passed away peacefully April 18, 2018 at Iberia Medical Center. In keeping with her wishes, her body was donated to LSU School of Medicine for the advancement of medical research.
Bobbie, as she was affectionately known by family and friends, can be best described as an amazing person who loved everyone. Her cousin and longtime care giver Denny shared that when Bobbie was young, she would pinch all of her cousins. Her mother would fuss at her and ask why she pinched everybody. Bobbie simply said, “because they won’t let me hug them”. Just one of the many sweet memories of their childhood with Bobbie. She absolutely loved her family. She also had a spirit and “joie de vivre” that drew people to her. Bobbie loved life and enjoyed spending time sitting in the hall seeing her many friends and residents of the home, and visiting with the staff. She never let her disabilities bring her down. Her beautiful smile and warm heart will be missed dearly by all whose lives she touched.
Survivors include her son, Leroy Waguespack; her cousin, best friend and caregiver of over 35 years, Denny Paul O’Brien; a step-sister, Alice Robicheaux; her cousins, Kirk Robin and Totsie O’Brien Charpentier; and her aunt, June Robin.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Martin and Lelia Robin Doucet; a step-sister, Anna Robicheaux; her uncle and aunt who also were caregivers for many years, Elmo Robin and Joyce Robin; and her aunt Eunice Robin Touchet.
