Mary passed away peacefully at home while surrounded by her family on Wednesday, July 14, 2021 at the age of 92. Mary was born in New Orleans, Louisiana where she attended school at Sacred Heart and enjoyed riding the street cars to meet her mother and run errands after school. During the Depression, her and her family moved to Manchac, Louisiana where her parents proudly own a Fish Market. It was there that she met Pat who she fell in love with and started a family. Later, they moved to Ponchatoula, Louisiana to raise and grow their family. Christmas was always special tradition to her where she created beautiful memories with her family. Mary was known around the community for her gift of sewing and making men’s neck ties. She made much of her children and grandchildren’s clothes as they grew up. Running the roads and shopping was what she found great joy in. Mary was a loving, caring, and wonderful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother that will deeply be missed by all that knew her. She is survived by her daughters, Connie Cologne (Walter), Barbara Dupree, Patty Lala and Michelle Dupree; son, Mike Dupree (Tammy); grandchildren, Gidget Cologne, Melissa Cologne, Patrick Cologne (Teresa), Brandi Heath (Shane), Randy Dupree (Misty) and Jason Dupree (April); great- grandchildren, Zachary Fabre, Kaylia Grabert, Kaitlyn Hawkins, Caleb Cologne, Alyssa Cologne, Alexis Cologne, Cayman Thomas Heath, Gracie Dupree, Layla Harris and Declan Dupree; and numerous nieces and nephews.
