Beth Magee

Katherine Elizabeth “Beth” Lunday Magee, the daughter of William Baker “Bill” Lunday, a World War I veteran, and Zaidee Mason Lunday, was born in Pelican on June 29, 1922. She passed away April 29, 2019. She was a descendant of a pioneer DeSoto Parish family. Her grandparents Dr. William H. and Anna Hart Mason settled in the Grove Hill community and later moved into Pelican in the late 1800s, after the construction of the railroad. One of Beth’s most vivid memories involved the Louisiana maneuvers in 1941. Hundreds of young soldiers arrived by train in Pelican and shopped at the local stores, much to the delight of the young ladies of the town. Beth often spoke of meeting Dwight Eisenhower and George Patton at the store run by her father and mother, formerly Dr. Mason’s office. Beth graduated from Pelican High School in 1939. She married James Franklin Magee, a World War II veteran, in 1942.

Betty Powell

Betty Mae Jenkins Powell, 84, of Marthaville passed from this life on April 23, 2019. She was born to Willis Edward Jenkins and Lucille Ammons Jenkins on April 1, 1935 in Robeline.

In the pages of the Bible, the Lord inspired the question, “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies…”; though she would never have claimed it, in the gentle, sincere nature of Betty Powell that question was answered. She was always happy; happy with what and whom God had given her and dedicated to her charge. To her, the heart of a person mattered most; she lived life simply, and without pretense, thankful for her many blessings. Behind Betty Mae’s sweet smile and soft-spoken voice was an inner strength, a strength of character, that fought for the goodness in others, established peace in the hearts of her family through life’s struggles, and loved unapologetically, without limitation and without condition.
