Patricia Babb Luquette

March 15, 1934 - June 23, 2022

Patricia (Pat) Babb Luquette quietly passed from this life to the next on June 23, 2022.  Pat was born in New Iberia, Louisiana on March 15, 1934 to Pearl Langla Babb and Albert Babb.  Pat married the love of her life, Leo Luquette, in 1955 and cherished their life together until his passing in 2013. Pat was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother and was very proud of the accomplishments of her children, Leo Jr. and Karen Hanson. She adored her three grandchildren, Heather Luquette, Connor Hanson, and Courtlyn Hanson. She had fond memories traveling, conversing, fishing, and playing games together.

Pat graduated from St. Anthony High School in 1951, after which she attended Lamar State College of Technology for two years studying what she loved, secretarial science.  She was employed by American General Life Insurance and then by Magnolia Refinery, now Exxon-Mobil, where she held several positions. After 27 years of loyal service, she retired in 1990 as the secretary to the Manager of Employee Relations.

The importance of her faith and religion were demonstrated by her volunteer work at St. Anthony’s Cathedral Basilica through the Bereavement Committee, the Cathedral Lady’s Club, and St. Joseph Altar each year.  Pat also was a volunteer for Some Other Place for over 18 years where she and her husband, Leo, delivered meals each week to the needy.  Pat had a host of friends including her “Girls of ‘51” classmates, with whom she frequently visited and traveled.  These women were her salvation after the loss of her husband in 2013.

Pat was preceded in death by her parents and the love of her life, Leo Sr.

Pat is survived by son, Leo Jr. of Monument, Colorado; daughter and son-in-law, Karen and Dave Hanson of Coppell, Texas; granddaughters, Heather Luquette of Austin, Texas and Courtlyn Hanson of Dallas, Texas; grandson, Connor Hanson of Dallas, Texas; and a very special daughter-in-law, Anna Luquette of Austin, Texas.

Memorials may be made to St. Anthony Cathedral Basilica, 700 Jefferson Street, Beaumont, Texas 77701 or Some Other Place, P.O. Box 0843, Texas 77704.

    Pat was such a sweet, kind lady. She always wore a smile and often helped to serve or volunteer at St. Anthony Cathedral Basilica. May she rest in peace and the light of Christ shine on her always.

    i was happy to be able to attend pat’s funeral today.

    i have been at the cathedral for over 40 years & during that time both your parents, Pat & Leo have been so nice to me.

    i was always happy to see either one of them. both always had a smile which made my day better.

    i remember a few years ago we had a big mail out at church. pat came to help. her organizational skills kicked in immediately & it all went so much more smoothly. anytime we did one of these mail outs, i always hoped that pat would be there to help.

    so happy to have known these 2 wonderful people.

    Pat was a wonderful, caring lady who will be missed by her family and friends. I met her at Some Other Place where she loved to volunteer.

    Pat and Leo were GOOD people. We will always remember their kindness. They were our wonderful neighbors at Toledo Bend, and enjoyed seeing them at Infant Jesus when they moved to Lumberton.
    May God wrap his arms around your family and comfort you during your time of loss.
