Hazel Marie Duplechain was born in Gueydan, Louisiana on April 21, 1935 to Dupre Duplechin, Jr. and Martha Thomas Duplechin. Hazel was a very talented seamstress and sewed beautiful clothes for herself and her family. She married the love of her life, Raymond Guillory, and spent the next 55 years together. They shared their strong Catholic Faith with their children and taught them by example the importance of having God in your life. Hazel believed the best way to help her loved ones was to pray a rosary daily asking the Blessed Mother for her blessings and guidance for them. Hazel also enjoyed working in her flower and vegetable gardens and bringing new things to life. This caring and loving lady will be greatly missed by those that loved her.
