Dorothy Bourque Duhon was born on March 16, 1931 in Duson, Louisiana. "Dot", as she was known by family and friends, had very great concern for her family receiving the best Christian upbringing. She was responsible for the movement that led to the establishment of St. Basil Church in Judice, where she later served as president of the first St. Basil Church Council. "Dot" was a Girl Scout Leader, a Cub Scout Leader, President of Judice PTA, and a CCD Leader. She was a charter member of the Judice Fire Department, auxiliary member of VFW Post 9822, and auxiliary member of the Retired Teachers Association. Putting her family first, her next love was traveling by motor coach to many parts of the U.S. and Canada with her husband. They were very active members of the Crusin' Cajuns and Family Motor Coach Association. "Dot" was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother sister and friend to all who knew her, and she will be dearly missed.
Pallbearers will be her grandchildren.
