Ella D. Byone, 90 years young, went to accept her eternal place with our heavenly father on Nov. 13, 2020. Ella was born in Cloutierville to the late Vidal and Marie’ (Rachal) Bayonne Hayward March 30, 1930.

She leaves behind to cherish her memory her children, Daniel Beaudion (Mary Ann) of Natchitoches, Dorothy Beaudion of Shreveport, Mary Jane Metoyer (Vincent) of Natchitoches, Marvin Byone (Lucy) of Natchitoches, Horace Bayonne of Natchitoches, Harrison Bayonne (Stephanie) of Natchitoches and her Pumpkin Pamela Byone of Natchitoches; 19 grandchildren; 55 great-grandchildren; nine great-great-grandchildren; as well as a host of nieces, nephews and extended family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her special companion, Horace Rachal; three sisters, Josephine Coutee, Mary Lena Byone and Ruby Byone; four brothers, Norris Byone, Edward Byone, Edris Byone and Richard Byone; grandson, Daniel James (Jamie) Beaudion; and great-grandson, Waylon Matthew (Ace) Metoyer Jr.

Ella D was known as a beautiful and loving person and a hard worker all of her life. She taught her family how to have strong morals and values in life. Her most cherished characteristic was ensuring all individuals in her presence were offered a plate of food to eat or a cup of coffee. She was always offering a helping hand to those in need and gave her very last to those she loved.

Ella D touched so many lives. Although we will not be able to call her or drop in for that cup of coffee, we feel she will be watching over us and will give us her genuine smile. Ella D, we have been blessed to have you as our angel watching over us with Big Pop. You will continue to live in our hearts, and we love you and miss you.

Those honored to serve as pallbearers include Vincent Metoyer Jr., Marvin Byone Jr., Joey Beaudoin, Harrison Bayonne Jr., Cameron Perry Sr. and Robert Galvin.

Honorary pallbearers will be Roger Byone Sr., Andrew Byon, Willie Byone and David Byone.
