Elsie Voncil Parker Duncan was born on March 23, 1929 at Bee Bayou, Louisiana to the union of her parents, the late Hubert Parker and Gracie Thorne Parker and she passed from this life on Friday November 25, 2022 at the Northern Louisiana Medical Center in Ruston. As one might expect she was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother and a sister to six other siblings who also preceded her in death. She was also preceded in death by her beloved daughter Sherry Haydel and her infant son Donald Duncan. She loved to bake and especially was a master of pies and candies of all types. She loved her hummingbird feeders and when there was spare time she loved the Game Show Network and traveling with her church groups. In her earlier years she was a faithful and active member of Start Baptist Church and in her later years she prefered staying closer to home by attending the Hebert United Methodist Church, where she was welcomed and loved with open arms. She will truly be missed by her family, her friends and all those that crossed her path. Her foremost love in life was that of her family. She instilled in them love and respect which is also evidenced in their lives.
