      Old-Time Resident Succumbs

      Friday, Nov. 18 marked the passing of another of Rayne's old time residents, Mr. John LeBleu, who died at the age of 66 years. Mr. LeBleu had lived here 44 years having raised all his family here. On Dec. 1, Mr. and Mrs. LeBleu would have been married 43 years.

      He is survived by his wife, formerly Miss Celina Clement; four children, Mrs. L. Boudreaux, Mrs. C.J. LeBlanc, Miss Theresa LeBleu and Ben LeBleu; seven grandchildren, two great grandchildren, and four brothers and three sisters, all of whom live in Lake Charles.

      Funeral services were held Saturday evening from St. Joseph's Catholic church with interment in St. Joseph's cemetery.

      Mr. LeBleu had been ill for several years and his death came not unexpectedly, but as a merciful relief from his earthy sufferings. He was a devout Catholic, his religion being his greatest comfort in his last hours when all else except spiritual things count as but dross.

      The Tribune bows its head in sympathy with the bereaved family, and may the Blessed Comforter be very near to those who mourn and help them as only He can help.
