Neva Carolyn Burge Mills

location-icon

Coushatta, LA

Neva Carolyn Burge Mills was born on October 19, 1937, and lived 86 blessed years, filled with faith, family, friends, and fun. For most of Carolyn’s life, she lived in Bellevue Louisiana. She attended Haughton High School and was a valuable asset to the girls basketball team. She was also a beautiful Princess on the Homecoming Court. After graduating in 1955, she attended beauty school in Shreveport. Marrying in 1957, she was a cherished wife to Warren J. "Jim" Mills, and a nurturing mother to two sons, John C. Mills and James C. Mills. Later, she was known as "Gee" to her beloved grandchildren, Tracy Lee Mills (and fiancée Savannah Nikole Fread), Morgan Caroline Mills, and Brittany Ann Dickey. Carolyn’s greatest delight was her family to which she was endlessly devoted. Carolyn had several jobs, and each launched another adventure. Along with her role as a hair stylist, she was also a substitute teacher. But the career that most people knew her by was at Walmart for 30+ years. Carolyn spent a lot of time extending excellent customer service to everyone that came into her department with a smile and conversation. During her days at Walmart, she was excited to host the Annual Associate Christmas Party at her home. Possessing a varied taste in hobbies, she enjoyed: square dancing, round dancing, watching Dancing with the Stars, sewing, puzzles, painting, traveling, antiquing and "boutiquing at Goodwill". She also loved volunteering at the Bossier Parish Operation Blessing food pantry. Her most passionate hobby was gardening, which went hand-in-hand with her love for God. She spent many hours toiling in the garden while talking with Him and praising Him for the beauty He had grown there. Carolyn was honored that her garden was chosen for the Piney Hills Master Gardener Trails and Trellises Tour in 2007. As a young child, Carolyn watched the Bellevue Union Church being built beside her home. She was a charter member there and remained faithful all her days. Carolyn was deeply rooted in her faith, which gave her peace and comfort when she faced the battle of cancer. On January 23, 2024, surrounded by her family at home, Carolyn passed from this earth and into her eternal home. She had said, "look for me weeding His flower gardens," but we all know there won’t be any weeds in Heaven. We envision that Carolyn was greeted there by her parents Walter and Myrth Burge; "Jim" her loving husband of 52 years; brother Jim & sister-in-law Sarah Burge; and sister Betty and husband Willie Wallace, and countless other family and friends. Left to cherish her memory, along with her sons, and grandchildren, are brother Cecil & sister-in-law Ellen Burge, many cousins, nieces and nephews, and countless dear friends. The family would like to extend a special note of thanks to Dr. Samip Master, Oncologist at the Willis Knighton Cancer Center and St. Joseph Hospice for giving extraordinary care. Honoring her as pallbearers will be Mitch Burge, Craig Burge, Thomas Burge, Lloyd Wallace, Cody Wallace, and Danny Greene. Honorary pallbearer will be Carolyn’s beloved friend of many years, Mike Walker. A visitation will be held on Monday, January 29, 2024, at 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. located at Rose-Neath Bossier. A Celebration of Life service will be held on Tuesday. January 30, 2024, at 10:00 a.m. also at Rose-Neath Bossier. Interment will be at the Burge Cemetery in Bellevue. If you wish to give a charitable memorial, the family suggests two of Carolyn’s favorites: St. Jude’s or Bellevue Union Church, 199 Bodcau Dam Rd, Haughton, LA 71037.

Charles Procell was not a man of great physical stature, but his character and principles made him larger than life. He never met a stranger and was a friend to all. If you measure a man by the company he keeps, Lil Charles had a great status. From Micheal "Bird" Birdsong, a loyal and dedicated friend he loved like a brother for decades or Judy Cox a woman who he loved like a sister who never left his side even as God called him home. He was never afraid of hard work, long hours, or whatever it took to get the job done. Spending his youth as an operator in construction and was from all accounts one of the most skilled in the business. Even in retirement, he worked as the backbone of his favorite place, C&J's Wateringhole, a place he cared for and maintained to a standard that received praise from customers and employees alike. Lil Charles knew the value of a hard day's work, a good friend, and a good time! He will be missed beyond measure and I know he is grateful for every prayer and the amount of love he received.

Coushatta, LA

Lt Col (ret) Lem C. Jones was born September 7, 1931 in Natchitoches, LA and flew his final flight to be with his Lord 20 January, 2024. Lem was a true patriot whose commitment to our nation and everything it represents never wavered. He embodied the Air Force core values of “integrity first, service before self and excellence in all we do”, and passed the tenets to his four sons which led them all to follow him in uniformed service. Tales of his exploits as a fighter pilot, to include 159 combat missions in Vietnam, are legendary and will continue to be recounted for decades to come. His leadership and counsel, both while in uniform and beyond, had a positive impact on the lives of countless people who are better for having known him. After his retirement from the military, Lem’s commitment to selfless service was evident through his tenure with the Coushatta Town Council, his role as the Board President for the Ware Youth Center, his support to the First Methodist Church and participation in numerous benevolent organizations and activities. In addition, he was widely known to invite himself in for coffee and tall tales with most Coushatta businesses as he “knocked around town”. Above all, his eternal love for Margaret, his wife of 72 years, his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren was his greatest gift and will never be forgotten. He was preceded in death by his parents, Cecil and Callie Jones, and his grandson Richard Jones. Lem is survived by his loving wife and closest friend, Margaret Jones, his sons Lt Col (ret) Lem Jones, Jr., Ron Jones, Lt Gen (ret) Tom Jones and his wife Debbie, and Maj Gen (ret) James Jones and his wife Heidi; ten grandchildren, twelve great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.

location-icon

Coushatta, LA

Funeral services for Ms. Maxine Wooley Lum, 84, of Chestnut, Louisiana, will be held at 2:00 P.M. Tuesday, January 23, 2024, at Ashland Baptist Church with Dr. David Moore officiating and Reverend Danny Slack assisting. Interment will follow in Weaver Cemetery in Chestnut, Louisiana. Visitation will be held from 5-8 P.M. January 22 at Ashland Baptist Church, Ashland, Louisiana. Services will be under the direction of Rockett-Nettles Funeral Home, Coushatta, Louisiana. Maxine was born May 10, 1939, in Chestnut, Louisiana and passed from this life on January 16, 2024 in Coushatta, Louisiana. She was the second of four children born to Wilton Henry and Ola Lee Ham Wooley. Maxine attended and graduated from Ashland High School, where she played basketball and was a member of Future Homemakers of America. In her senior year, her basketball team won their district and regional games and made it to the State playoffs. In 1955, in front of her parents’ store, she met the love of her life, Robert W. “Bobby” Lum. After a two-year courtship, they were married on December 16, 1957, at her parents’ home. They welcomed their only child, Mandy, in January of 1967 and she was the light of her parents’ lives. Maxine was a devoted mother, and she provided a Christian home for Mandy to grow up in. They made their home in Chestnut, where she helped establish Wooleyville, which consisted of her husband and herself, her daughter, her parents, siblings and her nieces and nephews. She was not only an aunt but a second mother to her nieces and nephews. Maxine cooked many meals, whether it was Sunday lunch, holiday meals for family or to feed many friends and family that came to visit at her house or the “store”. The summer hay-haulers also ate well when she, Aunt Lou and Mama Ola prepared the meal. Her special fudge, chocolate, coconut and sweet potato pies will be missed at Christmas and Thanksgiving. As well as all the birthday cakes she made for all her family through the years. Maxine worked every summer helping to raise a family garden with her parents and siblings. Many thousands of bags of cream-style field corn and purple-hull peas were frozen, along with hundreds of jars of sweet pickles, pepper relish and various jellies and preserves. She was also an excellent seamstress, and she sewed many clothes and dresses for Mandy and her nieces including a wedding dress, many Easter dresses and later prom dresses. She was a dedicated wife, mother, and Christian who loved God and her church family. She will be well remembered as the Beginners Vacation Bible School teacher. She loved teaching the little children about Jesus. Maxine, Bobby, Mandy and Troy were loyal supporters of the Northwestern State University Men and Women’s basketball programs and attended many games at home and on the road. They also enjoyed going to gospel concerts, making many trips to see her favorites, the Southern Plainsmen. She loved her Dallas Cowboys, and her whole family cheered them on for over 50 years. While drinking coffee in early morning or any other time when she sat down, you could find her working her word search puzzles. One of Maxine’s favorite places to visit was Branson, Missouri and Mandy and Troy made sure she got to visit as often as she could. Maxine will be sorely missed, but remembered well, by all who knew her. She is preceded in death by her husband of 63 years, Robert W. “Bobby” Lum; parents, Wilton and Ola Wooley; brother, John H. Wooley and wife Lillian; sister, Louise Rushing and husband LeRoy; brother-in-law, Dr. James Guin; nephew, John Alan Wooley and great-nephew, Seth Rushing. Maxine is survived by her daughter, Mandy Lum Wamsley and husband, Troy of Chestnut; sister, Dorothy W. Guin of Chestnut; sisters-in-law, Jackie Lum and Margaret Lum; her Wooleyville family: Diane, Randy and Evan Warren, Randall and Jere Rushing, Lecie Rushing, Timothy Havard and Saylor Grace Havard, Jennifer and Bill Griffin, Josie, Nathan, Canon Henry and Elizabeth James Schloer, Danielle, Chad and Allie Curole and Cade Watts, Jonah and Jessie Wooley; also, a host of nieces and nephews. Honored to serve as pallbearers are Randall Rushing, Bill Griffin, Chad Curole, Evan Warren, Jessie Wooley, Jonah Wooley, Nathan Schloer and Cade Watts. Honorary pallbearers are Randy Warren, Lecie Rushing, Josie Schloer, Allie Curole, Saylor Havard, Canon Schloer, Marcelle Slaughter and Alan Broussard. The family would also like to thank Dr. Iqbal Singh and Dr. Himanshu Desai, and Dr. Josh Cason and staff of Christus Coushatta Health Care Center for the care shown to Maxine.
