January 15, 1927 - February 16, 2021
Martha Louise Tatom DuBard, age 94, of Bossier City, Louisiana, passed away on February 16, 2021, after a three-year battle with dementia.
A graveside service will be held on Sunday, February 28, 2021 at 2 pm at the Minden Cemetery, with the Rev. Bill Crider officiating. Funeral arrangements are being handled by Rose-Neath Funeral Home in Minden.
Louise is preceded in death by her parents Carl and Marie Byrnes Tatom and her beloved husband of 61 years, Silas DuBard.
Louise was born in Minden on January 15, 1927. She graduated from Minden High School and shortly after began working at the Louisiana Army Ammunition Plant. She also worked at First Baptist Minden in various capacities but her main vocation was as a homemaker.
Louise loved the Lord and always looked forward to attending Sunday School and church each week. While she was not a member of the church choir, she loved to sing and was always humming or singing a hymn as she cleaned house. She was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. Other interests included reading and calligraphy.
Louise is survived by her daughter Debbie Crafts and husband Norbert of Bossier City and one granddaughter, Lily Grace Crafts; one sister, Doris Kelley of Minden, and nieces Nancy Chafin and husband H. Rhea of El Paso, Texas, Jan Kelley of Orlando, Florida, Lynn McGough of Summit, New Jersey and Michele Brou of Atlanta, Georgia.
The family wishes to thank the staff of Brookdale Bossier, in particular Miranda Gipson, Amanda Foster, and Sheila Nevitt for their care and compassionate treatment of Louise during her final months. They would also like to acknowledge St. Joseph Hospice of Shreveport who assisted with Louise’s care.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to First Baptist Minden or to the donor’s charity of choice.
