Lou Edna Myers Thompson

On September 18, 2012, Lou Edna Myers Thompson, 81, passed away peacefully surrounded by family at Christus St. Francis Cabrini Hospital in Alexandria. She went by many names, her daddy nicknamed her "Tubby" at a young age, which she is still known today. Nieces and nephews call her Aunt Tubby. She was Ms. Thompson, Ms. Lou, Mom, Mama Lou, and Ma; but most important she was Mama and MeMe. She took her role as the family matriarch very seriously and felt the responsibility to teach good manners, good morals, and values to all children who entered her home.

She and Earl were married 57 years and had two beautiful, loving sons, Lynn and Gregory; also, an adopted son "Toby", and Tommy who has been a member of our family since he was three months old.

The Thompson's fostered over three hundred boys in their home since 1961. She was instrumental in forming the Louisiana Foster and Adoptive Parents Association. She was President of the Louisiana Foster Association for four terms and National Vice President. She was a member of St. Matthew Baptist Church. A proud member of the Four Winds Cherokee Tribe. Her passion in life was her family.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Harvey and Amy Myers; her husband, Earl Thompson; two sons, Lynn David Thompson and Sean Eric "Toby" Thompson; and one brother, D. T. Myers.

She leaves behind her loving family to cherish her memory, two sons, Gregory Wayne Thompson and wife Karen of College Station, Texas and Tommy Lane Johnson and wife Debra of Oakdale; three sisters, Jackie Womack and husband Bill, Mildred McDonald, and Wanda Keel and husband Bert; one brother, Bob Myers; six grandchildren, Melanie Thompson Welch, Mandi Thompson Luedecke, Dustin Ryan Thompson, Lori Brook Thompson Zalobny, Angela Johnson Gotreaux, and Katie Johnson; eleven great grandchildren, Sydney Welch, Natalie Welch, Jacob Welch, Gracie Welch, Tucker Luedecke, Ty Luedecke, Maddie Luedecke, Chase Zalobny, Ethan Zalobny, Haley Thompson, and Logan Thompson; two great grandchildren, Ethan and Landon Gotreaux; and a host of family and friends.
