Louise Mizelle Bullard, 92, died at home with her family at her side on October 9, 2013. She was born in Ahoskie, North Carolina, and was the elder daughter of Phay and Elemuel Mizelle. She graduated from East Carolina University with a BA in Elementary Education and had a long career teaching in the public schools of North Carolina. After retiring from teaching, she worked as a real estate agent at Ocean Isle Beach, NC. She was an active volunteer in the community of Rocky Mount serving as president of the Rocky Mount Women's Club in the early 1950s and was a devoted member of West Haven Presbyterian Church from the time of its beginning. Louise was an avid and talented gardener and loved fishing and beachcombing with her husband, Jim Bullard. They were married in 1946 after Jim returned from Europe where he served our country during World War II. Louise and Jim were best friends, and their marriage was founded on a deep love and commitment to each other. They shared countless hours together as they traveled across the country achieving their goal of visiting each of the 48 continental states. They were married for 57 wonderful years and lived in Rocky Mount, Greensboro, and Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina.
Louise always told everyone she met, "I have had a wonderful life and enjoyed every minute of it!"
Louise was predeceased by her only sister, Clellie Mizelle Taylor, and by her husband, James Franklin, Bullard, Jr. She is survived by her three daughters: Cindy Baysden and husband, Tommy, of Beaufort, SC; Jorgann Rogers and husband, Bill, of Greensboro, NC; and Jamie Ewing and husband, Rusty, of Rocky Mount, NC. She is also survived by five grandchildren: Chip Baysden of Washington, D.C.; Andrew Baysden and wife, Joelle, of Charlotte, NC; Jay Ewing and wife, Alexis, of Greensboro, NC; Molly Rogers of Raleigh, NC; and Mary Miles Rogers of Columbia, SC.
