Sara Ferguson McKissack died peacefully in her home surrounded by her caregiver Crystal Woodall and family on February 21, 2021 in Coushatta, LA. Sara was an only child of Maudis and Lodie Ferguson. She was a life-long member of Red River Parish and Crossroads Methodist Church where she taught Sunday School for many years. She loved the Lord with every bit of her heart. She loved canning vegetables, sports – especially football, and working in her yard, keeping it immaculate at all times. She treasured her children and grandchildren and adored her five great grandchildren. Her dog Ditto was her best friend and never left her side. She was so funny, quick witted and very intelligent, but her sweet smile, caring heart and loving warmth will be forever missed by so many.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Maudis and Lodie Ferguson; daughter, Paula McKissack; two grandsons, Brooks Thomas McKissack and Philip Bounds.
Left to cherish her memories are daughter, Cheryl and husband, Kevin Shrell; son, James McKissack and fiancé, Rhonda Orr; granddaughter, Tara McKissack and fiancé, Robert Cole; grandson, Josh Bounds and great grandchildren, Easton Cole, Jentry Jo Bounds, Farrah, Kaylee and River McKissack and surviving fiancé of Brooks McKissack, Lori Desadier and son, Jayce and many more cousins and nephews.
Pallbearers will be Tim Kennedy, Gary Orr, Seth Orr, Stephen Bounds and Leon Kellogg.
The family would like to give thanks to her long term physician, Dr. Robert Hernandez. A special and personal thank you to Crystal Woodall for her endless and tireless efforts and support. Also the family would like to thank Rhonda Orr for everything she did and the compassionate care she provided to Sara and to everyone who called, texted or stopped by with words of comfort and care.
