She enjoyed joining her family and friends on the bus to the casinos, up until a year ago. Our family would like to thank the staff and nurses at Heritage Manor in Slidell, a special thanks to Kim S. and Nicole for their special attention to our mother, particularly in her final days. Family and friends attended a visitation on Thursday, June 25, 2020, at Our Lady of Prompt Succor in Chalmette, LA, followed by a funeral mass in her memory. Dora was laid to rest in St. Bernard Memorial Gardens. To sign and view the family guestbook, please visit
