Dottie was born February 2, 1930 to Marius Folse and Laura Chauvin Folse. She was raised in Raceland, LA.

On July 6, 1953 in New Orleans, LA, she married Charles Delvis Bond Sr. with whom she would share 36 years of marriage before his death in 1989. While her husband served in the Air Force they lived in several locations including Montgomery, AL, Topeka, KS, Orlando, FL and Marquette, MI. She had fond memories of each location and the friends she made along her journey through life. Upon her husband’s retirement from the military they moved to Carriere, MS where she lived for fifty years until her passing.

She was a dedicated and faithful member of St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church in Picayune, MS. She helped several of the parish priests by cooking, cleaning and praying for them. She was a Eucharistic minister for several years, attended daily mass and led the Chaplet of Divine Mercy after weekday masses until her health made her unable to do so.
She was very active most of her life and enjoyed spending time with her “church friends” and grandchildren, gardening, crafts, house painting, listening to country and gospel music, and she never let anyone leave her house hungry. She was a fabulous cook and made the best fried chicken, shrimp gumbo and potato salad and showed her love by cooking and doing what she could for others.

Dottie was preceded in death by her husband Charles Bond Sr.; her daughter, Kim Abercrombie; her parents, Marius and Laura Folse; her brothers, Gerard, Earl, Martin, Ernest, James and Harold Folse; her sisters, Gertie Grabert, Judy Noto, Teresa Philip and Marie Crotwell; and her great-granddaughter, Ginger Bond.

She is survived by her brother Leroy Folse; her children, Rose (Michael) Dolese, Tina (Kenny) Landry, Charles (Samantha) Bond Jr. and Nicole Bond; her grandchildren, Tracy, Scott, Michelle, Julie, Josh, Joseph, Kenneth, Jason, Hayley, Toni, Amber, Kacie and Coby; her sister-in-law, Jean Folse; her brother and sister-in-law, Ed and Mary Thomas; her son-in-law, Tommy Abercrombie; her best friend, Rev. John Noone; twenty-five great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.

She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
