Interment followed at St. Michael Cemetery.
Msgr. J. Douglas Courville, pastor of St. Martin de Tours Catholic Church, officiated at the funeral Mass.
Mrs. Hulin was born on February 2, 1929, to Theogene and Edolie Berthelot Bertrand. She graduated from St. Martinville High School in 1947 as class Valedictorian. She was employed with Bordelon Chevrolet 60 years ago, where she met the love of her life, Mr. Hubert (Mr. Bee). Lorena later went to work with her husband as the bookkeeper at Hubert Hulin Lumber Yard. Mr. Hubert told Lorena, “If you’re going to be a bookkeeper, you’re going to be my bookkeeper,” and they lovingly worked alongside each other for many years to follow.
Lorena was a devout Catholic and parishioner of St. Martin de Tours Catholic Church, where she was very active with the Catholic Daughters of America and was responsible for taking care of the Milk Fund. She loved to eat out at restaurants, watch TV, attend all of her C.D.A. meetings and pray the Rosary.
Lorena enjoyed going on vacations with her family – she lived for her family and was known to give a kiss to all those she loved. The times she treasured most, were those spent with her husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will be deeply missed by all those who knew and loved her.
Survivors include her loving husband of 57 years, Hubert Joseph Hulin Sr., of St. Martinville; her children, Murphy A. Hulin and his wife Julie, Ray Allen Hulin and his wife Priscilla, Frances Duplantis and her husband Walter, Judy Roberts, Hubert Hulin Jr. and his wife Linda, and Huey Hulin and his wife Tammy, all of St. Martinville; her grandchildren, Sully, Spencer, Ross, Christie, Stephanie, Travis, Kelsey, Paige, Chase, Kami, Brody, Addy, Michael, Matthew, Kelly, Mindy, Opie and Ashley; and her great-grandchildren, Anthony, Caitlyn, Reece, Carter, Miyon, Taylor, Brandon and Alix.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Theogene and Edolie Berthelot Bertrand; and an infant sister.
A rosary was recited at 4 p.m. on Friday by the Catholic Daughters and at 7 p.m. by Msgr. Courville.
Pallbearers were Sully Hulin, Spencer Hulin, Ross Hulin, Travis Hulin, Chase Duplantis and Brody Hulin.
