October 13, 1923 – September 2, 2022
It is with great sadness to announce the passing of Dionese Boullion Carpenter, 98, on Friday, September 2, 2022, from her beloved second home, The Parsons House Assisted Living in Omaha, NB.

Dionese relocated to Lake Charles, LA after her marriage to the late George J Carpenter in 1941, then in 1967 she called Sulphur, LA her forever home. Dionese was a member of Our Lady of Prompt Succor Catholic Church where she was a Catholic Daughter for over 50 years and volunteered for most anything especially for saying the Rosary. Most times if you drove to her house she would be sitting on her porch with a Rosary in her hand and would say several Rosaries a Day. She loved reading her prayers, praying for and with others and spending time with family. She was loved by all...."to know her was to love her" and she was known to many as "Maw C". Dionese will be remembered most of all for her award-winning roses. She was most happy in her garden where she had a deep and uncanny ability to bring most dead plants to life, she was known to have had a green thumb, and was a long-time member of the Southwest Louisiana Rose Society. She also enjoyed sewing and cooking, visiting with friends and family, going out to eat, and especially loved to spend time with her grandchildren.
