Linda Rabalais Obituary
Linda Reuher Rabalais, 81, of Gretna, Louisiana entered eternal rest on May 6, 2024. Linda was born in New Orleans. LA. She attended Dominican High School, Dominican College, and Our Lady of Holy Cross College. She married the love of her life, James A Rabalais, Jr. (Jim) in 1964 and they were married for over forty years. Linda and Jim were a constant pair, they enjoyed life together in family, travel, friendship and were rarely seen without each other's company. She taught elementary school and was later a school counselor. She served on numerous boards and committees during her life giving back to her community. Her beloved class of 1961 at DHS was the closest to her heart. She loved to plan events for them, from the simplest lunches to the big reunions as often as possible. She never met a challenge she could not meet or overcome. The truest joy of her life were her two children, James A Rabalais III (Tripp) and Amanda Rabalais. Linda has two grandsons that she loved watching grow to the men they have become. Recently, Tripp and his wife, Dottie, moved to join Linda in their home. She was delighted to have them so close and as a daily part of her life. Linda is preceded in death by her parents, CG and Beverly Reuther, and her spouse Jim. Linda is survived by her two children, James A Rabalais III (Tripp) wife (Dottie), and Amanda Rabalais; her grandsons, Christopher Rabalais (Marissa), and Cory Rabalais; great-granddaughters, Mable, Muriel, and Mathilde Rabalais; her siblings, Eileen Bagnetto, Georgine Bienert, and Bubby Reuther, and many beloved cousins, nieces and nephews. A Mass will be celebrated by Fr. Anthony McGinn SJ in the Chapel of Dominican High School, 7701 Walmsley Ave., New Orleans, LA on Saturday May 11, 2024 at 8:00 am.
