Dareal graduated as valedictorian of her class at Alcee Fortier High School and went on to obtain her Bachelors in Business Management from Southern University. She also studied at Charity School of Nursing. She was ordained a minister in 1992 and served at the True Church of God in Christ church in Boutte, Louisiana and worked for Doctor’s Hospital of Jefferson for 16 years. She later worked at Children’s Hospital of New Orleans for many years. Dareal was an avid reader, and especially enjoyed reading the Bible and listening to inspirational music. She was lively and loved by many. Dareal also was respected and known for her straightforwardness and giving spirit. She will always be remembered as a kind, intelligent woman who would give you the shirt off her back. She loved her family and would do anything for them. Family and friends will remember her nurturing spirit for years to come. She also enjoyed coke, and was often referred to as the “Coke lady”, we are sure the Coca-Cola company will notice a dip in their sales. Whenever you open a nice cold Coke, remember to share it with Dee. Relatives and friends are invited to attend a visitation at The Promise Church, 2021 S. Dupre St. New Orleans, LA beginning at 9 AM, on Friday, April 19, 2019. Funeral Service will be held at 11 AM, with burial to follow at Mt. Zion Cemetery in Boutte, LA.
