Dorothy Hebert Begnaud, 91, of Lacassine, passed peacefully on November 2, 2016.
Dorothy was born March 17, 1925 to Gerard and Ada Bares Hebert in Vermillion Parish, Louisiana. She lived in Lacassine, La most of her adult life, after marrying Oscar Begnaud, upon his return from WWII. Dorothy made hand-sewn heirloom quality christening sets and baby gowns for thousands of families across the state and country, with some even making it to children in Germany, Australia, and the UK. Dorothy was a parishioner of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Lacassine where she regularly attended Mass and recitation of the Rosary. In her service to the church, she prepared altar cloths and made repairs to the priest's vestments. She also used her talents to make baptismal bibs for the babies of the parish.
Dorothy is survived by her daughter Brenda Grant and husband Jesse Grant, of Smithville, TX; granddaughter Amy DuBose and husband Cody DuBose of Kyle, TX; 6 year old great grandson Cullen DuBose, of Kyle, TX; and siblings Hazel Hebert LeBlanc of Delcambre, U.L. Hebert of Milton, and Dale Hebert of Kaplan. Dorothy is preceded in death by her husband, father, and mother.
