Her family says she came for Mardi Gras and never left. After being displaced by Hurricane Katrina she relocated to Slidell. Ms. Dukes was a domesticated homemaker and more than anything she loved her family, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Her many hobbies included being a part of the Domino Divas which was located at the First Baptist Church in Chalmette, playing bingo as often as she could with her family, going on outings, participating in Mardi Gras festivities, listening to her Christian music and watching Jimmy Swaggart on the television. Macy is pre-deceased by her parents Thelma Woodell-Patterson Smith and Joseph Elzie Patterson as well as her sister Marjorie Ann-Patterson Brai, her youngest daughter, Tracie Collette Dukes and her granddaughter Macy-Theresa Dufour.

She is also missed by many nieces and nephews. We will never forget our mother’s number one saying, which was “Let’s go!” She was always prepared to go to new places and see amazing things.
