Jewel Sebren Higginbotham

A wonderful and caring wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother, Mrs. Jewel S. Higginbotham, a resident of Erwinville for more than 20 years and retired office manager of H&H Fabricators & Erectors Inc., passed away about 9:15 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 23, 2010, in the Hospice of Baton Rouge Butterfly Wing of the Baton Rouge General Medical Center on Florida Boulevard, surrounded by her loving family and best friend, Janet Shook.

Her 88 years of life allowed her to touch and influence many lives, leaving many memories and friends. She was loved for her quick wit and spiciness, especially by her pokeno club members.

Mrs. Higginbotham was born Feb. 28, 1922, to Alpha Louise and George Robert Sebren Sr. and was reared in Converse.

She was preceded in death by her parents, three brothers, George Jr., John Wesley and James Leroy; three sisters, Thelma S. Mann, Myrtis S. Edgar and Katie S. Gabriel; her loving husband of 50 years, James Monroe Higginbotham; and a grandson, James Martin Higginbotham.

She is survived by a loving son, James Robert Higginbotham and his wife, Judy; two grandchildren, Bobby Ray Higginbotham and wife Annette, and Donna H. Corona and husband Tommy; five great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren. She will also be missed greatly by her loving puppy and companion, Butch.

Services will be at the Erwinville Baptist Church in Erwinville. Visitation will be Tuesday, Dec. 28, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m., with a Christian service and burial following in the Erwinville Cemetery next to the church. Brother Willie Kennedy will be officiating.

She was a member and past worthy matron of Fidelity Chapter 160, Order of the Eastern Star. An Eastern Star Service will be conducted at 1 p.m., officiated by past worthy grand matron of the State of Louisiana, Janet Shook.

Pallbearers will be her Masonic brothers from Fordoche Lodge 292 and Livonia Lodge 220. Honorary pallbearers will be Bobby Ray Higginbotham, Colby Higginbotham, Tommy Corona, John Keith Corona, Joshua Jannise and Cameron Jannise.

The family would like to extend a special thanks to Dr. Boyd Helm, Dr. Phillip Padgett and the wonderful staff at the Butterfly Wing of the Baton Rouge General Medical Center for their professional and compassionate care. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Shriner's Hospitals for Children, 2100 Samford Ave., Shreveport, LA, 71103 (318) 222-5704 or to the charity of your choice.
