Louisette Schuyten Bordelon of Hammond, Louisiana, passed away on Sunday, May 28, 2023 at the age of 82. Lou was born in New Orleans, Louisiana,  on March 24, 1941. She lived most of her life in Hammond, Louisiana. Lou was a registered nurse who was passionate about bringing end of life care to terminally ill patients. She believed in compassionate care for those who are experiencing an advanced, life-limiting illness and that patients and their families should have medical, social, emotional, and practical support throughout this final phase. For this reason, she was instrumental in helping to establish the Richard Murphy Hospice in Hammond.

This organization serves individuals with developmental disabilities by providing supervised independent living, dayhab, and residential housing. Hammond Strawberry Fields is where Lou worked until she retired.  Lou was also an active member of the P. E.O., a philanthropic, nonprofit organization, where women celebrate the advancement of other women by offering scholarships, grants, and other stewardship opportunities. The P. E. O.’s goal is to motivate and assist other women to achieve their highest aspirations. 

We will remember Lou’s generous heart and her selfless dedication for providing care and comfort to others.
