Nadine Ellen Wooley

Nadine Wooley was born into a loving Christian home on June 23, 1936, in Mason City, Iowa. She went on to be with the Lord on October 8, 2021. She is survived by her husband of 66 years, Lynn Wooley; four children: Debbie Merritt (husband, Lavan), Dean Wooley (wife Janet), Donnie Wooley (wife Cheryl) and David Wooley (wife Stacy) and daughter of the heart, Theresa Lewis; 16 grandchildren: Dr. Jason Merritt (wife, Christy), Jami Parks, Justin Merritt (wife Mary), Joel Wooley (wife Amber), Matthew Wooley, Meghan Evans (husband Gary), Dr. Dana Botsko (husband George), Cody Wooley, Zac Wooley (wife Kaci), Bobbie Lewing (husband Timothy), Jennifer Tarpley (husband Grant), Duncan Craft (wife Laura Ann), Will Fathree (wife Sara), Tabitha Chamberlin (husband Cade), Jana Gould (husband Calin) and Laura Fredieu (husband Wesley), twenty four great grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews and friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Royal and Marie Pierce, her sister Lyene Schroedter and two brothers, Bill Pierce and Dean Pierce.

After graduating from Woodward High School in Woodward, Iowa, she met Lynn Wooley, and traveled the country for work. They returned to establish their permanent home in Sabine Parish, Louisiana, in the community of Pendleton. From their home, she managed the couple’s water well drilling business and cattle ranch for over 30 years. She served her community tirelessly as a three-term school board member for the Negreet district, member of the Sabine Council on Aging Board of Directors, member and officer of the Zwolle/Toledo Lions Club, and her church, Pendleton Assembly of God, where she served as the church greeter for decades. She was a Godly woman who loved her Lord with all her heart, never missing a chance to worship with her church family.

A selfless lady of the highest level, she enjoyed serving others, having provided care to countless elderly through deaths and illness. She loved playing hostess to family gatherings for any occasions, but especially at Christmas, with so many family traditions. But her real joy was just spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Not a day passed that one or several of her family stopped in for a welcome visit.

Funeral services were held on October 12, 2021, at 11:00 AM at Pendleton Assembly of God Church with a burial service to follow at the church commentary.

Her grandsons will honor her as Pallbearers. In lieu of flowers the family request donations to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, or the charity of your choice in her remembrance.
