OBITUARY

Laura "Nannie" Mae Compton

September 18, 1942August 10, 2020

Laura Mae Compton, affectionately known as "Nannie" gained her Heavenly wings on Monday, August 10, 2020.

Laura was one of five children born to Alvin J. and Laura Martin Matthews Sr. on September 18, 1942. She will best be remembered by the devotion given to her family and faith, a devotion she instilled in her children and all those around her and she was a member of Our Lady Seven Dolors Catholic Church.

She was a wonderful and doting mother to her five children; Debbie, Susie, Windie, Timmy and Tommy. Every day that anyone crossed her doorstep was a cause for celebration, whether it brought good conversation or good food, but never one without the other, preferably cooked by someone else. During the visits, you'd find her in her recliner, coffee in one hand and the other pointing that finger.

Her love of family extended to anyone she met; she collected family as quickly as "her new favorite" recliner and cookware. Many would say, she wasn't just nice, she was awesome and amazing, full of wisdom and loved her family, helping anyone in need, she was the best.

If you knew her, you'd know right now she would be telling you "It'll be what it'll be" and "It is what it is".

She was welcomed into Heaven by her parents, her twin sons; Timmy J. and Tommy C. Compton, a sister; Mary Lou Matthews, and brothers; Alvin "AJ" Matthews Jr., John "Boo" D Matthews.

Those left to enjoy her cookware and recliners are, her children; Debra "Debbie" (Michael "Redneck") Knighton, Kathy "Susie" (Vern A) Lobdell, Windolyn "Windie" J (Nilda) Martinez, a sister; Ruth A (Spencer) Boudreaux, her grandchildren; Melissa D "Pokie" (Jim) Rudolph, Timothy "Boomer" Young, great grandchildren; Evan and Landon, twenty-five nieces and nephews, her many Godchildren and "Her Guys".

The family will welcome friends on Friday, August 14, 2020 at Hixson of Welsh beginning at 11am until 9pm, a Cursillo Rosary will begin at 6pm. A Private Funeral Mass will be held Saturday, August 15 at Our Lady Help of Christians Catholic Church in Jennings, LA. For the health and safety of family and friends the funeral Services will be by invitation only. She will be laid to rest at Andrus Cove Cemetery in Lake Arthur.

We invite you to sign her digital register book, leave a favorite memory or sentiment of condolences on our website www.hixsonfuneralhomes.com

Mrs. Laura has always been one of my favorite ladies of all times, always an encouraging word from her no matter the circumstance and a beautiful lady inside and out.

Laura came to me in 1991 looking for work, and in a temporary moment of lucidity I hired her. For twenty years she served as manager in a home for six mentally handicapped me. She never ceased to amaze me. She was their fierce defender, and moved heaven and earth to provide them with independence and quality of life. I thank God and her family every day for loaning her to me, and to "her guys".
