(Mary) Dolores Dibble Blanchard, 80, loving mother, family, and friend to all. She was born and raised in Simmesport, La. She loved dancing, and spending time with family, and get togethers. She was an excellent Cajun cooking queen. She took care of anyone that needed her to the best of her ability.

She is preceded in death by parents, Alice and Willie Dibble, brothers, Lones Dibble, and Clarence Dibble. She is also survived by her loving dogs, Coco and Gabby, who were always there protecting her. She will always be with us in spirit.
