Obituary

Demetrie Marie Bushnell, departed this life on Wednesday, May 18, 2022, at St. Patrick Hospital in Lake Charles, LA. She was born December 25, 1952, to Jessie Bushnell Sr. and Gertrude Brignac.

**Demetrie worked at C.A.R.C. as a caregiver for several years. She loved caring for others. She had heart of gold and was always there. She also loved to cook, crochet, dance, and have fun. Demetrie’s twinkling eyes and beautiful smile would light up a room, but it was her heart that taught her children to love, to have faith in our Lord Jesus, and in the power of prayer. Her incredible spirit taught us to pursue and never give up, to make the best out of every situation, and live our lives to the best of our abilities. Our mother was a blessing to all her children and grandchildren. She was known to many as Momma Dee. Her hugs, kisses and telling us how much she loved us will be missed so very much!

The world lost a beautiful soul, but heaven gained a Stunning Angel.
