Martha Ducote

Send Flowers Send Flowers

On August 25, 1932 a beautiful blue eye baby girl was born and welcomed in to the world by Thomas L. Hudspeth and Martha Hudspeth. She was no doubt mama and daddy's little angel. Through her daddy's presence was there for only a short time, she was eternally bound and forever remained "Daddy's Little Girl". Miss Baby to her family and others, she left her mark. She was born, raised and lived her short 84 years in the peaceful Louisiana countryside.
"All in Due Time", she married her best friend, one true love, and soul mate, Leroy Ducote of Krotz Springs, LA. Together they wrote the most heartfelt love story. With hard work, blood sweat and tears Leroy built his "Lovey" the home of her dreams, and together they raised their chaps. Robin Ducote, Leroy Robin Ducote, and Betsy Ducote Rostlon, Richard Ducote, Martha Ducote Volker, and Phillip Ducote.
Mama to her chaps, "Maw Maw" to her grandchildren, and "other Maw Maw" to her great grandchildren. A true old fashioned lady, with a heart of gold. A sense of humor that few saw, but "shorty Pants" enjoyed her fair share of shenanigans. Even as her time drew near she still played silly games with the kids.
She had a furry group of chaps that adored and loved her. She left behind CoCo that she asked for on her deathbed, Marley, Lily and Brownie.
She went thru life an easy going woman a tough old bird, but even in her last days she put on her big girl panties and muddled thru. On July 22, 2017 at 9:40 p.m. surrounded by Mike, Dori and Martha holding her hands she slipped into death as easily as she went thru life. She went to meet her "lovey" in their heavenly mansion.

A funeral mass will be held Friday August 4th, 10:00 A.M. at the Immaculate Conception Church in Washington, LA.
Interment will be at a later date in the family Cemetery in Rosa, LA.
Words of Comfort to the family may be expressed at Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Sibille Funeral Home of Opelousas.

    Its always sad but comforting to silently recall your smile and dear familiar face so loved by one and all. For the world may keep turning and change from day to day but precious memories of you will never fade away. And here's hoping that this message which carries so much love will somehow find it's way to you in heaven up above. Its time to let you know, dear mawmaw that although you are at rest you'll live forever in the hearts of those who loved you best
