OBITUARY

Dorothy Janet Dick Bordelon

May 12, 1937April 2, 2021

Dorothy Janet Bordelon (née Dick) passed away on April 2, 2021.

Mrs. Bordelon was born May 12, 1937 to William (Frank) and Ida Lee Dick in Minden, Louisiana.

She is survived by her devoted daughters, Janet Bordelon Pringle, and Penny Bordelon Champion; grandsons Andrew Pringle and wife Stephanie, Joseph Champion and wife Paige, Ryan Pringle, Jared Champion, and Thomas Pringle; and great grandchildren Alexis, Towner, and Nash. She is preceded in death by her husband Earl; her parents; son-in-law, Robert Pringle; siblings Clarice Dick, Christine Traylor, James Dick, and William Dick Jr. Also mourning the loss of their sister are Alice Huffman and husband Jack, Carolyn Faith and husband Leroy, and Jenny Jones and husband SJ; brother, Bobby Ray and wife Alverne and sister-in-law, Barbara Bordelon.

Dorothy spent her formative years in Doyline Louisiana surrounded by what she termed good “country folks”. By this she meant God fearing people who worked everyday for a living and who didn’t ask for handouts. Growing up with 7 siblings meant that she didn’t get all that she wanted, but she got enough. She would pick cotton before starting school, pick beans as needed, and along with her siblings performed a myriad of duties associated with mid-century country living. These experiences defined her later life. Her married home was immaculately cleaned from baseboards to ceiling, and she raised her daughters with the same no nonsense parenting style with which she was reared. However, she doted on her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She retired from the payroll department at LSU Med Center, where she was known as “Speedy” for how quickly she completed her work. In early retirement she took frequent trips with her husband Earl, visiting Mt. Rushmore and Branson among other places. Growing up, Dorothy didn’t get all that she wanted, but she made sure that her grandsons and great grandchildren did. She was a master grit chef, a tricky domino player, and a loving grandmother. There is nothing that Dorothy would not do for her family. Those of us who called her sister, mother, or “Momo” all have memories of life with Dorothy which we will always cherish.

A visitation for Dorothy will be held Saturday, April 10, 2021 from 10:00 AM to 10:30 AM at Centuries Memorial Funeral Home, 8801 Mansfield Rd, Shreveport, Louisiana 71108. A celebration of life service will occur Saturday, April 10, 2021 at 10:30 AM, with interment to follow in Centuries Memorial Park.
