It is with great sadness that the family of Barbara Dartez Andrepont announces her passing on Sunday, June 21, 2020 in the comfort of her home with her husband at her side. She was 78. Barbara was born and raised in Sulphur, Louisiana on April 10, 1942 and was a graduate of Sulphur High School. She was a homemaker and co-owner of Modern Marble with her husband, Francis. She was a lifelong, faithful member of Our Lady of Prompt Succor Catholic Church where she served on the Parish Council and as a CCD teacher. Barbara was very strong in her Catholic faith and was devoted to our Blessed Mother. She lived her life deeply loving and very proud of her family, fiercely supporting her husband and son’s political careers and was always a cheerleader at her grandchildren and great-children’s activities and sporting events. With her contagious laughter and incessant smile, Barbara enjoyed dancing, Cajun music, reading and cookouts while her family looked forward to her homemade pralines, fig cake and the most delicious cornbread dressing. She will forever be missed by everyone who was blessed to know her.

Barbara is survived by her husband of 62 years, Francis L. Andrepont; her two sons, Joe Andrepont and wife, Sherri of Sulphur and Mark Andrepont and fiancee’, Melissa Stockstill of Baton Rouge.

She is predeceased by her parents, George and Evia Guidry Dartez.

My thought and prayers go out to all of Barbara’s family and friends. I am blessed to have known and loved Barbara. She was always kind with a contagious laugh and mischievous smile. We spent many hours at the ladies table at SPAR sharing, laughing, and crying when needed. I am going to miss you my friend.

She was always kind to me and our family in Sulphur. She was one of the first Moms I met when we moved to Sulphur back in 1969. 🙏🙏🙏

Francis, Mark and Joe and family, I am so sorry for your loss . My deepest condolences. Barbara was a precious soul and a bright light. She always made me feel special. I always enjoyed visiting with her. She was always positive and encouraging . One of my favorite memories of her is a few years ago when she called me to tell me how much she enjoyed a book I had given her. We laughed and talked about the book, life and our faith. I am blessed to have been her Godchild and witnessed faith in action through her. I will miss her smile and infectious laughter. Keeping you all in my prayers.

Barbara was such a great friend. I always saw her at Church, and then we often saw each other out and about in the sulphur area.
We always stopped to have a sweet visit.
We were involved in activities and projects for Church, and we worked together. I really can't believe she's gone. It doesn't seem real.

Such a sweet girl, and she was always cheerful. So pretty all the time. A friend to all.

Mr. Andrepont & Joe,

I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember Mrs. Andrepont's smile every time I would get to see her when she came to a Police Jury meeting. It was always a delite to get to talk with her for a few minutes before the meeting began, as she always uplifted my day. My prayers will be with you as you make your way through the next few days, weeks and months.
