      "Dude" LeBleu Rites Held on Saturday

      Rayne friends learned with much regret this past week of the death of Edward J. "Dude" LeBleu, well-known resident of Rayne for many years, Dude's death occurring in Port Arthur where the family has been residing during recent years.

      Mr. LeBleu passed away Friday morning at 3 o'clock at a Port Arthur hospital after a recent critical illness, and funeral services were held from St. James Catholic church in Port Arthur Saturday afternoon at 4 o'clock, with interment in the Greenland cemetery in that city.

      Dude had hosts of friends in Rayne during the many years the family made their home here. He was married to the former Miss Rena Mae Hazen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W.H. Hazen.

      In addition, he is survived by his dad and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Ben LeBleu, two uncles, D.P. Pitre of Port Arthur and C. Pitre of Beaumont; and five aunts; Mrs. L. Boudreaux, Mrs. Theresa L. Davis, both of Rayne; Mrs. C.J. LeBlanc of Scott, and Mrs. L. Dupont of California, and Mrs. Alice Prevost of Lafayette.

      His grandmother, Mrs. John LeBleu of Rayne, also survives.

      Tribune and the family's widespread circle of friends here all join in expressions of condolence to Mr. and Mrs. LeBleu and others of the family in their sorrow.
