Judy Coates Hooter

Judy Coates Hooter, of Pumpkin Center, Louisiana, peacefully passed away surrounded by her family on Sunday, February 19, 2023, at the age of 70. She was born on Tuesday, June 3, 1952, in Hammond, Louisiana. She was a devout Christian and stayed faithful in God throughout her life. Her entire world revolved around her family. She took great pride in watching her beautiful grandchildren grow, and she was immensely proud of her four children. She had a true heart of gold, and never met a stranger. Judy was a hair dresser for 35 years, and made many friends that became like family to her. She shared a passion for decorating, florals, and watching the Saints on Sundays. She was a "fashionista", and always kept up with the latest trends. She will be dearly missed, and it will never be the same without her around.
