March 16, 1928 - July 17, 2016
Lolita Domingo Armit-Dunning (Aunt Lee) entered into eternal rest on Sunday, July 17, 2016 at 88 years of age. She was born on March 16, 1928 in New Orleans, LA to the late Andrew C. Domingo and Marie Lightell Domingo. Lolita was preceded in death by her husband Sherman Dunning and by her first husband and childhood sweetheart, St. Jacques M. (Jack) Armit. She was also preceded in death by siblings Frank G. Bertrand, Evelyn Domingo Schneider and Manuella Domingo Calmes. Lolita was retired from the USDA, having worked for Commodity Credit and U.S. Forest Service in New Orleans, making many life-long friends. Lolita led a very active life. She was a member of the Knights of Columbus ladies’ auxiliary for many years in various councils: Immaculate Heart of Mary, No. 4547; Edward J. Stoulig No. 3528; and Our Lady of Divine Providence, No. 9347. She served in many different roles over the years including Auxiliary President. She loved the Knights of Columbus and was very dedicated and blessed with the wonderful friends she made along the way. Lolita was also very dedicated to St. Lawrence the Martyr School and Church where she taught Catechism and was a Eucharistic Minister. She always wanted to help people and give back any way she could. She was a volunteer Eucharistic Minister at East Jefferson General Hospital for many years until her health no longer allowed. She met so many people and made many friends in all those years. She was a member of NARFE and a parishioner of Our Lady of Divine Providence, Metairie, LA. Although Lolita was not blessed with children of her own, she was like a mother to her loving nieces and nephew, Margaret Hartley Tornabene (Richard), Dianne Hartley Quiggle, Thomas Hartley (Sharon), Andrea Hartley Butler (Jim) and Vivian Carriere Adams. She loved them all as her own and that love carried over to their children and grandchildren. She is also survived by her loving cousin Jacqueline Spiers Edwards who was her very first “daughter” as well as other cousins, nieces and nephews in-law whom she dearly loved. Lolita never met a stranger and was loved by everyone. For the past three years she was a resident of Nouveau Marc Retirement Community where she reigned as queen of their Mardi Gras Ball in 2014. As her health declined, she was lovingly cared for by Vinetta Dabney and the staff of Attentive Companions Home Care and Heart of Hospice. Lolita was a very devout Catholic and loved God above all. She will be missed terribly by us all but we know she is happy in heaven with her beloved angels and all her family and friends who had gone before her, with no more sickness and suffering. Rest in peace dear Aunt Lee, until we meet again! Relatives and friends are invited to attend the Funeral Mass at L. A. Muhleisen and Son Funeral Home, 2607 Williams Blvd., Kenner on Thursday, July 21, 2016 at 1:00 p.m. Visitation will begin at 10:00 a.m. Interment in Lake Lawn Park Mausoleum.
