She was buried at St. George Cemetary, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana yesterday.Justin and all but one of her 10 children present along with 18 grandchildren, 3 greatgrandchildren, Abbott and Ory family members, and many, many others were present.We were there to mark her life and her passing.She was 81 years old, born July 4, 1922.She and Justin would have been married 60 years on Nov 8th, 2003.It was a beautiful church service, with many family members contributing gospel readings, testimonies, the eulogy and "Amazing Grace", also at the wake.
She was a women who put up a very brave fight, but finally lost her battle.She took care of her family and didn't want to leave them.The mother of many, Lenabell stuck by her family, even those others counted as "lost".Lenabell never had a bad word to say about anyone or them about her.
