Bethel graduated from NCHS in 1994 and earned an Associate’s Degree from NSU. Bethel always had a strong work ethic and excelled at any position she held. She genuinely enjoyed working with the public and adored her work family and patients at the Dermatology and Skin Surgery Clinic in Natchitoches. She loved God, her mama, and Tom Brady. Her favorite season was crawfish season. She lived a quiet life and enjoyed her privacy and independence. When she was not working, she was often found hanging out at home with her two dogs. She especially enjoyed antiquing with her nephew and watching documentaries on the History channel. Bethel was a member of the Life Church in Many, Louisiana. She loved her church family and attended faithfully until her illness. She was her mama’s favorite child, and she reminded her siblings of that often.
It takes a village when someone is faced with such a difficult journey in life, and Bethel had the best at her side. Special thanks to the NRMC Cancer Center staff, and especially Dr. Akhtar. Your compassion, dedication, and unwavering support of our dear Bethel will never be forgotten. We would also like to thank the nurses in the NRMC ICU, Louisiana Extended Care, Dr. Mary
Long, and Dr. Bill Ball for going above and beyond to make her feel safe, loved, and taken care of during her last few days. We would also like to include her work family: Dr. Ingrish, Dr. Giles, Haidee, and Teresa for supporting and accommodating her after her diagnosis. You will never know how much that meant to her.
Pallbearers will be Barney Roberts, Caleb Wester, Michael Brown, Brian Glenn, Easton Sandifer, Tommy Lewis, and Troy Welch.
