Mrs. Booty was born July 2, 1938 in Coushatta, LA and passed away December 19, 2020. Louise was affectionately known as “Malou” by her grandchildren and many others until her great-grandchildren came along and she was proud to be “Loukie”. It didn’t matter what you called her, to know her was to love her. She had an infectious smile that lit up the room. Malou was full of life and lived it to the fullest. She loved to look her best wherever she went, and if she ever got the compliment about looking good, her signature response was “looks have never been my problem.”
Louise was strong in her faith and baptized at an early age. She was a member of First Baptist Church Coushatta. She was a graduate of Coushatta High School Class of 1956 and Ayres School of Business. After graduating, she was a secretary at Hanna L’Heirson Clinic and Natchitoches Parish Hospital. Louise also worked at Edward Jones as a branch office administrator for 17 years. After retirement, she enjoyed spending time with family and friends. Louise looked forward to meeting up with her “lunch bunch” group. She was a lifetime member of Eastern Star Chapter #6.
Louise was known everywhere she went and never met a stranger. She was always the life of the party, but always insisted on being the center of attention. She was proud to be from Natchitoches and loved to tell people she was in Steel Magnolias. She and DeWitt loved to dance and for years attended monthly dance club. They were also proud supporters of NSU Athletics.
Louise was a member of the Krewe of Dionysos where she proudly wore the title of Queen in 2000. She found much happiness in parading around and spreading joy through the City of Natchitoches and surrounding areas. She always looked forward to the Queens trips and was always up for an adventure.
She was preceded in death by her husband, DeWitt Booty; son, Robert Henry “Skip” Wooley, Jr.; father of her children, Robert Henry Wooley; parents, Robert “Bobby” Edwin Posey, Jr. and Elizabeth “Tap” Bogan Posey; and sister, Shirley Fry.
