Ferol C Hebert
June 13, 1948 – July 3, 2019
Ferol Cox Hebert was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on June 13, 1948, to Ross E. and Billie M. Cox. She married Alfred Roy Hebert on December 21, 1969, and they had two daughters, Kristan in 1972 and Leigh in 1974. Ferol passed away on July 3, 2019. Ferol was predeceased by her father, Ross E. Cox, Sr. and her brother Ross E. Cox, Jr. She is survived by her husband, Roy Hebert, daughter, Kristan Hebert, Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and daughter, Leigh Hebert and her significant other, James P. Manasseh, Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She is also survived by her mother, Billie M. Cox, sister Martha C. Lee and husband Clifton M. Lee, brother James W. Cox and wife Sue Anne, and brother Charles E. Cox and wife Kim. Ferol is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews. Ferol graduated from Louisiana State University in 1970 and embarked on a brief teaching career before beginning her own family. At the same time, she obtained her real estate broker license and dabbled in real estate. Once the children were old enough, she opened and operated a small business before entering the mortgage loan business. She was a very successful mortgage loan officer for a number of financial institutions in Baton Rouge in a career that lasted over twenty five years. Upon retiring, Ferol spent most of her time making herself available for her family and friends, whether it was driving her nephew to school or jobs, cooking meals or treats, or running errands for others. She also spent a lot of time with her companion, Fritz, her Great Dane. There is always a special bond between mothers and daughters and Ferol's devotion to her mom, Billie, was no exception. She devoted special attention to Billie whether it was just chatting on the phone several times a day, taking her to appointments, or fixing something special for her. Ferol was a member of Kappa Delta Sorority, the Junior League of Baton Rouge, and the Baton Rouge Country Club. Ferol's successes in life were many but she was most proud that she raised two daughters and one husband. While there were ups and downs, we never doubted that she loved us. That does not mean we agreed all the time and, it seemed sometimes, we never agreed, but we lived and loved. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
