Gloria Theresa Dugas Robichaux, age 92, passed away on May 8, 2020. Pre-deceased by her parents John Wesley Dugas and Ailene Marie Rene along with her brother Jay Dugas and his wife Irene, the late brother-in-law Robert Bihm, and her husband of 51 years Irvin J. “Robie” Robichaux. She is survived by her children Wayne Robichaux M.D. (Phyllis), Peggy Malbrough (Roy), and Randy Robichaux (Sandra) along with her sister Linda Bihm of Baton Rouge and grandchildren Christine, Jeanine, Ryan, Adrienne, Rene, Aimee, Angele, and Andree with eighteen great-grandchildren with Ember on the way.
A rough early life led to a long happy marriage, a traveling retirement, and a devotion to her family. Her life was defined by taking care of others which began with her sister, Linda, and continuing to her great-grandchildren. For years she took great pleasure in organizing the family beach vacation topped off by the daily sea shell search which always looked like a mother duck with a line of ducklings wandering up and down the shoreline. Unfortunately, she was robbed of her memories by dementia and subsequently forced to succumb away from her family by the constraint of the coronavirus lockdown.
The family gives special thanks to St. Francis Assisted Living, St. Anthony's Gardens Memory Care, and Ameri-Care Hospice along with all the individual nurses and aids who took such wonderful care of her when the family had to be separated.
A private Funeral Mass will be held Tuesday, May 12 at Greenwood Funeral Home with interment at Greenwood Cemetery. Mass can be viewed following the service on Greenwood Funeral Home's Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/greenwoodfh/videos/
