September 18, 1930 - May 19, 2021
Mary Longwell Duplantis peacefully departed this life after a brief illness on May 19, 2021. Born on Sept 18, 1930, Mary lived a long and productive life. Her greatest joys were raising her 3 daughters and teaching the thousands of children she nurtured during her time as an educator in Plaquemines Parish and in her religion classes in The Woodlands, TX. Education was a priority in her life, and she impacted generations of young minds. Mary enjoyed cruising with her friends and family. She also loved painting, the New Orleans Saints, and catching up with friends on Facebook. She volunteered for the local food pantry and was an “On Air” personality as “Grandma Mary”. Memberships include the ABWA, Past President of Retire Teachers, Past President of Senior Pals, St. Anthony of Padua and the “YaYa Sisters”, her wonderful group of friends who were always ready to share a margarita or two. Mary is preceded in death by her husband Perry John Duplantis, her mother, Mary Nita Rodriguez, step father, Joseph Edwards, father, Charles Harry Longwell, Sr., brother, Charles Longwell, and sister, Carolyn Longwell Robinson. She is survived by her daughters, Teena Sandberg (Mark), Dawn Stoker (Dennis), Mary James (Terry) and her grandchildren, Amber Coates (Ryan), Randi Jones (Ben), Dina Beck (Travis), Casey Stoker (Karie), Carlea Collins (Ryan) and Chelsea Sandberg. Her great-grandchildren include Olivia, Levi and Avery Beck, Emily and Anna Stoker. She is also survived by her uncle, Harry Longwell (Norma), and best friends and prayer warriors, Joyce Ruetgers, Hazel Geautreaux, and Bernie Messionier, and many more. There will be a private graveside service at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Belle Chasse, Louisiana, because of ongoing concerns due to Covid 19. We ask you remember Mary through your prayers and a donation to St. Anthony of Padua Food Pantry or the American Heart Association in lieu of flowers.
