Obituary for Marsha Carol Palmer Trahan

On May 23, 2018, the light was blown from our lamp. Marsha Carol Trahan, age 70, passed away with her family at her bedside. A proud graduate of McKowen High School in Jackson, LA, she was a mother, grandmother, and the center of everything good in her family. Among her favorite pastimes were spending time with and cooking for her grandsons. She was an avid bird- watcher and loved traveling the country with her husband in search of a new bird to add to her life list. She was a meticulous housekeeper and took great pride in her garden, house plants, and her cat, BullsEye. Marsha is survived by her husband of 54 years, Huey P. “Butch” Trahan, Jr.; grandsons, Warren “Tray” Torrance (Mandy), Logan P. Torrance (Shelby), and Sage Yetta; niece, Shelley Thompson Milliken; sister, Sharon Palmer Thompson (Keith); and brother, Riley Palmer (Kathie); sister-in-law Linda Young (Bobby); brothers-in-law Rocky and Dewayne Trahan (Florene); stepmother-in-law, Margie Trahan; and numerous great-nieces, nephews, and other extended family members. She is preceded in death by her daughter, Daria Trahan Gregg; son, Warren L. Trahan; nephew, Ret Michael Thompson; mother, Gladys Mitchell Palmer; father, Clarence E. “Sonny” Palmer; mother-in-law, Naomi Higgins; and father-in-law, Huey P. Trahan, Sr. Visitation will be held on Friday, May 25, from 5-9pm at Charlet Funeral Home, 4230 High St, Zachary. Visitation will continue Saturday, May 26, at the Jackson United Methodist Church, 1727 Sycamore St, from 9am until service time. A celebration of Marsha’s life will be held at 11am at the church. Memorial donations in memory of Marsha can be made to Boy Scout Troop 51 via the Investar Bank (formerly the Highlands Bank) in Jackson, LA.
