Danita Lenora Long LeBleu was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.  She passed away peacefully on Nov. 25, 2021 at the age of 82.  

Born and raised in Moss Bluff, La., Danita was the daughter of Bill and Sabra Long. She was a resident of Ragley, La.. Danita was lovingly known as “Nanny” not only to her grandchildren, but to most that knew her.  She had a big heart and spoke kindly of everyone. Despite her own battle with Parkinson’s disease, she always put other’s needs in front of her own.  Nanny loved spending time with her grandchildren; in her eyes, they could do no wrong.  She also loved to travel and spent many years camping and making memories with her siblings. Some of her favorite past times were shopping and getting her hair done.
