Earline was a beautiful soul and loved all. She was a loving mother, grandmother, and great grandmother and known to many as “mom”. She loved music, bowling, Tuesday night and Thursday morning Poke-N-O, playing Tri-Ominos, Dominos, and cards. She also loved bingo, traveling, fishing, and especially her pets Nichole, Sam, and Gracie. Earline was full of personality and had a contagious smile. She was the matriarch of her family and enjoyed spending time with them especially around the holidays. She was God’s greatest gift to many. Earline leaves a beautiful legacy behind to be reunited with her beloved husband and now rests in the arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Chauvin Funeral Home is honored to serve the family of Earline Trahan.
