Carol LeSaicherre Paul, a native of Ponchatoula and resident of Central, passed away Wednesday, April 5, 2023, at her home, surrounded by her family following a long illness. She was 87 years of age.

 Carol was born in 1935 and graduated from Ponchatoula High School, salutatorian, in the Class of 1953. She married the love of her life, Marcel “Bucky” Paul, her high school sweetheart.


The couple married in Liberty, TX, and eventually settled in Baton Rouge, following Marcel’s military service in Korea. Carol co-founded a business, Baker Agency, and co-authored a children’s book, Elbert Egret and Magnolia Cow, both with her husband. A highlight of her life was a trip to France with her husband to attend a family reunion of the LeSaicherres in 2005.  She loved to read, solve crossword puzzles, attend live theater and ice-skating events. Everyone that met her said she was incredibly kind-hearted.
