Freddie Jean White Keene was born April 3, 1940 at Holum, Louisiana, to the union of her parents, Linius Bruce White and Florence Spruell White, and she passed from this life to her heavenly home on May 1, 2020 after an extended illness. Freddie was a member of First Baptist Church of West Monroe. She was a beautician for many years. Freddie loved to cook and excelled in the kitchen. Every child and grandchild had a favorite dish and she delighted in preparing it for them and then sharing that meal with them. Cooking for others was her way of showing her love for them. She adored her grandchildren and spent as much time with them as she could. Freddie was preceded in death by her parents; her daughter, Kim Coleman Broussard; granddaughters: Victoria McDaniel and Hope McDaniel; brother, Larry White and sister, Georgia White Hodges.
Those left to cherish her memory are her husband, Harold Keene; sons, Shane McDaniel (Holly); Roger Coleman (Wanda), and Mark Keene (Maria); daughter, Cindy Keene; sisters: Sherry Miller (Clyde) and Carla Poole; fifteen grandchildren and seventeen great-grandchildren, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
