If you knew Elouise, then you knew there was no guessing as to what she was thinking. She was a free spirit that would tell you whatever came to her mind. She loved her children and grandchildren deeply but would always keep them in line with a threat of a whooping. She was a hardworking lady and many of her jobs consisted of manual labor. Her strong work ethic has been passed down to her children and grandchildren. In her spare time, she enjoyed working in her yard, gardening and growing rose bushes. She loved her dogs, cats and pygmy goats, even bottle feeding the ones that needed special attention. She was definitely one of a kind and will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation to Hospice of Natchitoches and to Donna Marbut and her daughter Catherine for the exceptional care and compassion they showed to our mother during a difficult time.
