Betty passed away April 10, 2021, surrounded by her loved ones.  She was born Sept. 29, 1936, in Alexandria to Joseph Brosset and Eva Moreau Brosset.

She married her high school sweetheart, Lawrence “Cokey” Carnahan.  She graduated summa cum laude in elementary education from Northwestern State University.  As a teacher, she had the opportunity to touch many lives and make a difference.  Her pride and joy were her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  She took great delight in making others happy.  Every member of her family had a beautiful crocheted throw lovingly created for them.  She was generous with her time and cooked delicious meals for family and friends and loved visiting with them.

Christmas was her favorite time of year and she and Cokey welcomed many into their home which all will remember fondly. Betty’s greatest legacy was to instill her love and devotion to family and friends in her children and grandchildren.  Her memory will be cherished.

Those left to cherish her memory include her children, Reneva Carnahan Trahant and husband Kenneth, Lawrence “Bush” Carnahan III and wife Juanice and William Carnahan and wife Chere; brother, Lester Brosset and wife Mardie; six grandchildren, Meridith Trahant, Dr. Elise Morgan Lang, Megan Trahant, Lauren Michelle Fadely, William Joseph Carnahan and Wesley Carnahan; as well as four great-grandchildren, Hudson Lang, Emery Lang, Meredith Fadely and Dylan Avery Fadely.

The family would like to thank Monique Brosset for her loving care and NRMC Hospice.
