Clara “Claire” Ann Wendrock Dupre’, age 80, passed away on Sunday, October 17, 2021, due to complications from COPD. She was born on January 29, 1941 in Crowley, LA.

Claire was a true renaissance woman. She was the Homecoming Queen and graduated from Crowley High School in 1958. She was a lady of many talents, even building her own furniture. She never met a project she couldn’t master. She was as creative as she was determined, and her inspirations and style filled her home. She enjoyed time with her friends and found comfort in her faith. Claire created a happy home for her family and loved her children and grandchildren dearly. She loved her dogs Archie and Gracie and her flock of hummingbird visitors. She was a business owner, renovator, master maker, good dancer and inspiration to all who knew her.

She is survived by her brother, Richard Wendrock (Marcie) of Spicewood, TX, and her three children: Dawn Dupre’ (Andrea Petrucci) of Milan Italy; Kyle Dupre’ (Mathew Lefkowitz) of New York, NY, and Jill Dupre’ (Josh Mayer) of New Orleans, LA; and four grandchildren, David Petrucci, Mathilda Mayer, Miriam Petrucci and Mose Mayer.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Richard Wendrock and Anne Stansbury Caffery and her husband, Robert Turner Dupre’.

A Graveside Service will be held at Oaklawn Cemetery in Welsh, on Wednesday, October 20, 2021, at 10:00am, with Rev. Monica Monk officiating.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations in Claire’s memory to Jill Dupre’, 2835 Esplanade Ave., New Orleans, LA. 70591 for the Welsh Beautification and Tree fund.

The family would like to thank Heart of Hospice for her care and especially Rachel Cline Robertson for her limitless love, compassion and assistance.
