Linda Donnette Lee Dawsey Frick (Donnette Frick) was born Oct. 31, 1948. A Celebration of Life for Donnette Frick of Bogalusa, who went home to be with the Lord on Monday, Jan. 18, 2021, after suffering a massive stroke. Services were held Friday, Jan. 22, at 2 p.m. at Memorial Baptist Church in Bogalusa. Brother Keith Sheridan officiated.

Visitation was Friday, Jan. 22, from noon until 2 p.m. at Memorial Baptist Church in Bogalusa.

Graveside burial was at Hillview Memorial Gardens on Spring Valley Road, under the direction of Poole-Ritchie Funeral Home.

A native of Picayune, Miss., Donnette lived most of her life in Bogalusa, where she was a home maker and mother to so many, not just her three biological children. She was a member of Memorial Baptist Church and active member in the community. Most importantly she was a faithful servant for the Lord Jesus Christ.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Lynton Lee and Dixie Landrum Hilsher; her husband, Dr. Neil Frick; her brother, Joey Hilsher; and her great-niece, Emily Goss.

Left to cherish her memory are her children: daughters, Dawn Dawsey Faucheaux (Michael) and Lesha Dawsey Misita (Bubbie); her son, Edwin Dawsey (Brandy); her grandchildren, Ryan Ranatza (Sara), Eric Bourne, Zack Dawsey and Cole Dawsey; and her brother, Darwyn Hilsher (Teresa). She is also survived by her beloved nieces, nephews, and all kids and grandkids she adopted over the years who knew her as Nana.
