Louise White Postle

Louise White Postle, formerly of Winnfield, passed away Friday, May 23, 2014, in Metairie, LA. Mrs. Postle was born
in Paris, TX, March 29, 1918. Her mother, Nettie McCasland White, died when Mrs. Postle was only 9 years old, so her
father, Clarence White, moved the family to Louisiana, his native state, and raised Mrs. Postle and her older sister alone.
Mrs. Postle graduated from Gibsland (LA) High School, and in 1939 she received her B.S. degree in Home Economics from Louisiana State University. Many years later she received her M.S. degree in Home Economics and her teaching certificate from Northwestern State University. Mrs. Postle’s first job was as a Home Demonstration Agent for the Extension Service in Winn Parish. She lived at Mrs. Davis’ Boarding House, where she met her husband, William C. (Bill) Postle. They were married at the First Methodist Church in Winnfield in 1942. Later that year Mr. Postle began a twoyear service term in the U.S. Army Air Force and Mrs. Postle continued her work in Winnfield. Over the years they had two daughters, Penny and Carla. After leaving the Extension Service, Mrs. Postle worked as secretary at the Methodist
Church, taught Home Economics and Science at Winnfield Junior High School, and served as a drapery consultant for
Frederick’s Floor Covering. Mrs. Postle moved to Metairie in 2003 to be closer to her  daughter, Carla. She kept up with the Winnfield news by reading the Enterprise and never forgot the close friends she had made there. She appreciated those of you who kept in contact with her over the years; your phone calls and letters always made her smile.Mrs. Postle was preceded in death by her parents, her daughter, Penny Postle Bolline, and her sister, Beryl White Pope formerly of Sherman, TX. She is survived by her daughter, Carla Postle Shrider (Michael) of Metairie, grandson Corey Shrider
of Spring, TX, granddaughter Kelsey Shrider of Metairie, and several nieces and nephews. A Memorial Service was held
Saturday, May 31, 2014, at Munholland United Methodist Church, Metairie. Following Mrs. Postle’s wishes, her body
was donated to LSU Medical School in New Orleans
