May Gondron Doré
Breaux Bridge – Funeral services were held at 1 p.m., Tuesday, March 18, 2008, at St. Bernard Catholic Church for May Gondron Doré, 86, who died Sunday, March 16, 2008, at St. Martin Hospital in Breaux Bridge. Interment followed at St. Bernard Cemetery No. 2.
Rev. Fr. Louis Allen Breaux, associate pastor of St. Bernard Church, officiated at the funeral Mass. Readers were Maureen Bearb, Cresta Bearb Thibodeaux and Earline Sonnier. Gift bearers were Ava Doré, Ashley Doré and Danielle Gary.
Mrs. Doré was a hairdresser, seamstress and quilter for many years; in fact, quilting was her enjoyment and her passion. She taught many of her friends how to quilt and sew. She was a parishioner of St. Bernard Catholic Church, where she taught religion for many years, and was a member of the St. Bernard Altar Society, Rosary Group, Catholic Daughters of America, and the St. Martin Home Demonstration Club. May was devout to her faith and honored the Blessed Virgin Mary by daily prayers and devotions, bringing many petitions of those who needed a source of healing — her prayers demonstrated how she loved caring for people. She enjoyed being surrounded by her family and friends, and she was very proud of her 8 children, whom she loved and adored.
Survivors include one son, Ted E. Doré and his wife Lori of Kuwait; seven daughters, Maureen "Mo" Bearb and her husband Wayne, Florence D. Comb, Millie D. Picard and her husband Larry, all of Breaux Bridge, Gina D. Dupuis and her husband Ames Pete Jr. of Loreauville, Velma D. Huval and her husband Tommy, Vida D. Gary and her husband Ted, and Iris D. Doré and her husband Randy, all of Breaux Bridge; one sister, Odette Blanchard and her husband Lee of Lafayette; a sister-in-law, Doreen Gondron of Bridge City, Texas; 20 grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Nicholas E. and Alzire Broussard Gondron; three brothers, Sidney Gondron, Emile Gondron Jr. and Bertin Gondron; one sister, Cecile Dionne; and her former husband, Dudley J. Doré.
A rosary was recited at 7 p.m. on Sunday.
