We also thank the SICS nursing staff at University Health for their incredible care and compassion and the members of Elks Lodge #122 for being her second family.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to First United Methodist Church of Shreveport, Louisiana or The Elks Lodge #122.
