Obituary For Ellen Mae Goudeau Oby

On a beautiful Autumn day, October 26, 1938, a baby girl became the fourth child born to the late Emma Lee Fontenot Goudeau and the late Rufus “Jack” Goudeau, in Evergreen, Louisiana. They named her Ellen Mae.

Ellen was a member of the 1957 graduating class of George Washington Carver High School in Bunkie, Louisiana. She furthered her educational training by earning her Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) degree from Louisiana Community and Technical College (Avoyelles Campus) on August 16, 2001. Most of her adult life, Ellen was a homemaker. For a brief period in life, she was employed at the Bailey Place of Bunkie.

On January 15, 1958, Ellen was united in Holy Matrimony to the late Lionel Oby. To this union, one (1) son, Anthony Oby, Sr., was born.

In addition to her parents and husband, Mrs. Ellen was preceded in death by two siblings, Albert Goudeau and Frank Goudeau.

On Monday morning, June 17, 2019, at 7:02 a.m., Ellen’s Creator spoke and she quietly and gently slipped away at CHRISTUS Saint Frances Cabrini Hospital, in Alexandria, Louisiana.

Mourning her departure but celebrating her precious memories are, one (1) son, Anthony (Elvira) Oby, Sr., of Evergreen, Louisiana; three (3) grandchildren, Miracle, Anthony, Jr. “J.”, and Antonio; one (1) brother, Lester (Shalita) Goudeau of Summit, Illinois; two (2) sisters-in-law, Mary Goudeau of Robbins, Illinois and Annette Goudeau of Evergreen, Louisiana; a very special friend, Ms. Alice Hayes of Cottonport, Louisiana; numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
