Billie Coussou

August 10, 1930 — January 22, 2024

Nederland, Texas

Billie Joyce Coussou, an embodiment of unwavering faith, devoted wife, loving mother, cherished sister, adoring grandmother, and a friend to many, passed away at home on January 22, 2024, leaving behind a legacy of love and spiritual devotion. 


Billie was born on August 10, 1930 as the sixth child in a family of eight born in DeQuincy, Louisiana, to Mary Ellen and JM LeBleu. She found immense joy in gardening, creating beautiful quilts, sewing, cooking for her family, visiting with friends and neighbors, reading her bible, and enthusiastically sharing her deep love for the Lord with others.


She is survived by daughters Karen Hollier and Janeen Phillips, son Glenn and his wife Linda Coussou, daughter Joyce and her husband Rick Satava, grandchildren Alissa Parker Gonzales, Brooke Fox, Cody Parker, Tiffany Jennings, Kaycee Baker, Misty Ferguson, Kara Booth, Shane Coussou, John Coussou, and Kelsey Buckman, 22 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.


Billie was preceded in death by her beloved parents, siblings, her loving husband of 59 years, Elmer “Tootie” Coussou, daughter Carrie Ann Parker, and grandson Craig Jennings. She is now joyously reunited with them in the Kingdom of Heaven.


Her life was enriched by special friendships, notably Janice and Joe Heger and Debbie Mize, who stood by her side for many decades. In her final days, Billie received exceptional care from Best Hospice, Coral Cobert, who provided loving nursing care, and Gwen Ardoin, whose gentle and respectful attention ensured comfort and peace.


Billie Joyce Coussou’s life was a testament to her faith, love, and the power of family. Her spirit, teachings, and memories will live on in the hearts of those she touched. She has found eternal peace and joy in the loving embrace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
