Loucinda DuBois, 94, passed away peacefully at home, Wednesday, October 2nd. Born in Delcambre on December 3, 1924, she was the daughter of John Lee LeMaire and Ozia LeBlanc LeMaire. She was raised in Delcambre where she attended elementary and high school, participating in band, basketball, and tennis. She graduated High School in 1941. Loucinda started her working career with Thibodeaux Boiler Works as a bomb inspector during World War II. After the War, Loucinda married the love of her life, Joseph DuBois on Easter Sunday April 21, 1946, and moved to Avery Island. There she resumed life as a house wife and mother to her family. Upon her children growing up, she started working at the McIlhenny Company commissary and later was hired as a French instructor with the school system in Coteau and Center Street Elementary. Lou’s hobbies included traveling, cross-stitching, and cooking, with a special joy of hosting family for the holidays. One passion she had was decorating her house for Christmas and showing off her Christmas Village. Loucinda and Joseph were a very outgoing couple who enjoyed dancing and associating with groups of local friends. She actively supported the Boy Scout Troop 15 on Avery Island and was the proud mother of four sons who attained the rank of Eagle Scout. She was a life-long parishioner of St. Marcellus Catholic Church in Rynella, LA, where she served in the Ladies Altar Society, Eucharistic Minister and headed the church flower scheduling, but her passion was for singing in the church choir. She was preceded in death by her loving husband Joseph DuBois, parents John Lee LeMaire and Ozia LeBlanc LeMaire, siblings Yolonda Moss, Mary Richard, John LeMaire, Olan LeMaire, and grandsons Sky Anthony DuBois and Matthew Joseph Burt. She is survived by a loving family - daughters, Sheryl DuBois Dartez and husband Bobby of Jefferson Island, and Eileen DuBois Burt and husband Steve of Houston, TX, sons, Joseph DuBois, Jr. and wife Pauline of Bennettsville, SC, Byron DuBois and wife, Kathy of Lexington, KY, David DuBois and wife, Jan of Kingsland, GA, and Michael DuBois and wife, Cathy of New Iberia, fifteen grandchildren Amy Blake, Joshua Dartez, Megan Tjon, Scott DuBois, Ellen DuBois, Rosemary Edmonds, Celia DuBois, Stuart DuBois, Marlee DuBois, Kelsey Kelley, Parker DuBois, Kimberly Gaspard, Natalie Faucheaux, Kaitlin Burt, Isabelle Burt; seventeen great-grandchildren; and siblings Evans LeMaire, and wife Jackie and Teddy LeMaire, and wife Barbara, and sister-in-law Ethel “Tot” LeMaire. Funeral services will be held at St. Marcellus Catholic Church in Rynella, LA at 10:00 am on Monday, October 7, 2019 with burial at the cemetery at St. Marcellus. Fr. Ed Degeyter will be the celebrant. Jodi Bollich, Vocalist, will sing In The Garden, On this day o Beautiful Mother, Hail Mary Gentle Woman and Be Not Afraid. The family will receive friends from 4:00 pm until 9:00 pm Sunday, with the Rosary being recited at 7:00 pm at Evangeline Funeral Home in New Iberia. The funeral home will reopen on Monday from 8:00 am until 9:30 am. Pallbearers will be Joseph DuBois Jr., Byron DuBois, David DuBois, Michael DuBois, Bobby Dartez, and Steve Burt. Memorial contributions may be made in Mrs. DuBois’ name to St. Marcellus Catholic Church, or to Heart of Hospice. Unfortunately, we lost our mother to another world years ago; a world in which we were only her caregivers. A world where she was reliving her childhood and had a longing for her parents. We continued to love her the same through that timeframe and cherished the time that we had with her. Rest in peace Maw; Paw is going to be glad to see you. We miss you both! The family wishes to thank the personnel with Heart of Hospice for their caring and professional service.

I met her years ago when I first met Richard. I thought she was a very sweet lady. I saw her several different times during the years that I lived in New Iberia. She was always so gracious and kind. Cook the best meals. Was an Lady of exemplary faith and trust in human beings. I am in prayer for her family in the past few years they have had several deaths. Which is always hard on the family. I really thought a lot of her and I know she will be missed may you rest in peace Ma Lou

Aunt Lou was a great person. Every time I visited her she was always so sweet and always happy and smiling. She raised some awesome children who in turn raised their children. She will be welcomed into Heaven by her husband and many brothers and sister and in laws. Rest in peace sweet Aunt Lou.
