Bonnie Rae Morris Mophett, daughter of Wince and Dorothy Edwards Morris, was born June 12, 1935 and passed from this life on 29, 2020 at the age of 85. She was a 1953 graduate of Harrisonburg High School. She was a member of the Lady Dawgs basketball and softball team. She was competitive and loved a challenge. She coached Jr. Guild girls’ softball and enjoyed her Thursday bowling days and tournaments with her bowling team. She was also strong willed and independent. She loved the Lord, her family, and friends. She was very fond of singing gospel music with her Wallace Ridge group where they sang in many churches. She always knew how to make light of every situation and just went with life as it came. She handled hardships with Grace that could only be done with the help of our Lord. She enjoyed her beach get-a-ways with her best friends. She also enjoyed spending time with her Sicily Island Sr. friends and sharing her gift of caring for plants. She definitely had a green thumb. She was an encourager to her family and friends. She was an active member in the community for many years. She served on the Louisiana Soybean Festival Board, was a member of the Jonesville Junior Guild and served as Catahoula Parish Constable for 8 years. Although we will miss her greatly, we are at peace knowing that she is free from suffering in this world and is in her eternal home.
