Jeanne Marie Louise Victoria "Lou" Kohler
Full name: Jeanne Marie Louise Victoria Kohler. Likes to be called Louise. Baptized on Nov 11, 1918 - the day World War I ended. The priest insisted on the name "Victoria" (or maybe it was "Victory"). Now lives in San Antonio, TX. Glynn Kohler sent me this obituary: After a lengthy illness, Marie Louise Kohler answered God's call March 24, 2010. She was born October 24, 1918 in Echo to Eustis W. Kohler and Marie LaCombe Kohler of Echo. As an Air Force wife she traveled the world, living in over twenty states, three continents and several assorted islands during her lifetime.
Among other things, she will be well remembered by her family for her uncanny ability to "sweet talk" law enforcement officials out of speeding tickets often with bribes of a shrimp gumbo or crawfish etouffe promised for delivery on her next trip through the victimized jurisdiction. She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother and sister-in-law, Haley E. Kohler and Lela B. Kohler of Lake Charles. She is survived by her son, John Dudney and wife, Sylvia of Austin, Texas; her granddaughter, GeniΘ Louise Dudney-Beckmann and husband, Shannon Beckmann of Kyle, Texas; her grandson, Andy Dudney and wife, Debbie; three great - grandchildren, Sydney, Drew and Dylan of Leander, Texas along with numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. . Buried in St. Francis de Sales Cemetery in Echo.
