Every visit I ever had with her was memorable. Her bigger than life personality was....so loving, so fun, so entertaining and so Southern! Peggy & Jane, you were blessed to have her as your mother and I know you knew that and that you adored her. But then, everyone who met her adored her! I send heartfelt love to all her family and pray that your million wonderful moments with her will carry you through this time of loss. Hugs around your necks........Tobee

Jane and Peggy--My mother Elizabeth Netterville Coit always thought of Felice as one of her best friends. Felice called her Doots like a lot of Newellton people. Before I left for LSU in 1966, my mother and I drove to Dallas and stayed at Fellice's house. She helped us shop for college clothes for me! What an adventure for a Newellton girl and I wore those clothes with confidence all through college and even after I was married. What great memories you must have!

With the gift for gab, she never met a stranger .... Always treating everyone equally. She was the best grandmother ever!!
Love always,

The most amazing gift of being a teacher is you enter the ONLY profession which approaches INFINITY. Learing from our teacher's we sort of know "where the knowledge began", BUT We WILL NEVER KNOW where it ends.

We miss Felice at Five Star Premier Residence. I met Felice when I came to visit the property before I moved in.

What is the world going to be like without Felice?

My thoughts and prayers are with all of Mrs. Horwits's family. We moved from NY to Dallas in 1969 and I was starting 5th grade. Mrs. Horwits was my beloved teacher. She always said that we made quite a pair- me with my NY accent and her strong "Louisiana" accent. She made me feel at home and was a wonderful teacher both inside and outside the.classroom. She will be truly missed.

Felice was my father's first girlfriend. She sat in front of him during grade school days, and she told me he used to punch the back of her sweater with his pencil! They came back to the same school after graduation from college and taught in classrooms beside each other. Luckily, my husband and I were able to enjoy knowing her, too.
Our sincere sympathy to her family. You have lost a treasure.

Even though I have not seen her in many years I remember what a wonderful person she was. I especially remember her making me her homemade mayonnaise for my birthday because it was the only mayonnaise I liked.
My sincere condolences to Jane and Peggy and the rest of the family. Felice was a lovely lady and I know she will be missed.

Your description of your Mom in the paper could not be more perfect. You couldn't help but to fall in love with her. I will always remember Felice in her most "Felice" moments. Please extend my sympathies to all.
