Connie Elaine Thompson Rogers

July 29, 1952 — November 14, 2020

ROGERS, Connie Elaine Thompson passed on from this Earth on Saturday, November 14, 2020 at the age of 68 after a brief illness. Sis. Connie was a resident of Natchitoches, LA. Born in Baton Rouge, LA on July 29, 1952. She is survived by her three daughters Crystal Elaine Tanner; Allisyn Brooke Miller-Granier; Nora Elizabeth Townsend, Spouse Joseph Townsend; Grandchildren Robert Tanner, Spouse Shoshanna Tanner; Ethan Tanner, Alaina Granier, Nicholas Reid Granier, Jacob Townsend, Jaxon Townsend, Ava Grace Townsend, and Great Granddaughter Madison Tanner. Her only brother Robert Brent Thompson, Wife Barbara Thompson, and a host of nieces, nephews and friends she loved and cherished including her church family of New Life Evangelism Center. Also, her best friend and companion of ten years, her Party Poodle, Rascal. She was preceded in death by her parents LeRoy and Lavonia Thompson; granddaughter Ava Brooke Granier and son in law Nicholas (Nick) Granier. Her children invite you to celebrate the life of their beloved mother on Wednesday, November 18, 2020 at New Life Evangelism Center in Natchitoches. Visitation will be held from 10-2pm with Funeral services at 2pm. Live stream broadcast will be available through Facebook on the New Life Evangelism church page with Bro. Dennis Bjornberg and Bro. David Clary officiating. Our mother had a real zest for life and a love for people. Early in life, she discovered she could make the biggest impact in the lives of children by being in the classroom. She attended Southeastern College and began her career working with special education children in the public school system. Her heart was that of a servant. Later in life, she worked in the field of medical coding and billing, for Acadiana Computer Systems where she eventually retired. Like her father LeRoy, Mom had a passion for art. Before the days of Hobby Lobby, she was a proud owner of an arts and craft supplies store in Ball, LA where she not only sold supplies but, offered classes to the public. She loved creating things through arts and crafts. She passed on her love of crafts to her daughters and grandchildren. Mom also loved to cook! She was always looking for a new recipe to cook with her family and friends. It was nothing to her to whip out a cookbook and start up the kitchen with the mixer, food processor, and ingredients a flying. You’ve never seen a cookbook collection as plentiful as hers. And believe me she couldn’t part with a single one. Mom loved to fish for whatever would bite her hook, it didn’t matter if it was from the bank or the boat, just say the word “fishing” and she was there. As a devoted mother, she loved all her children and grandchildren unconditionally and was always their biggest cheerleader. Any chance she had to go to Destin, Dallas, or to a rodeo to see her grandchildren, she was there ready to support them. She took pride in her children and grandchildren’s successes big or small. She would tell everyone about them and let them know just how proud she was. Mom lived by example. Through her own struggles she taught us to love the Lord, the importance of family, service to our community, how to be resilient, and the true meaning of selflessness and unconditional love. She loved to make people laugh and her sense of humor was quick witted. Mom will be deeply missed by all who knew her and called her friend, mom, nana, sister, or aunt. There wasn’t anything she wouldn’t do for anyone in a moment’s notice. Those honored to serve as pallbearers are: Joseph Townsend, Maj. Evan Kelly, Nicholas Reid Granier, Jacob Townsend, Jaxon Townsend, Josh Thompson, Tommy Rhodes, and Mark Norsworthy. Honorary pallbearers are Robbie Tanner and Ethan Tanner. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her work bring her praise at the city gate. Proverbs 31:31
