Our beautiful “Honey" Selena Faye Tugwell Chatman, was plucked from life’s garden on Friday, March 1, 2013 when our Savior called our beloved from labor to reward.

“Honey” was born to the union of Johnny Tugwell and Elizabeth Richardson Tugwell on October 25, 1923 in Walls Lake at Sterling.

Selena was married to the late Willie James Chatman Sr. and to this union one son was born Willie James Chatman Jr. whom proceeded her in death.

Her formative education was in Ouachita Parish; upon completion of high school she attended Grambling College where she earned a B.S. Degree in Elementary Education and a M.S. in Education from Northeast Louisiana University. She inspired many lives through her 40 plus years of teaching young people in the Morehouse Parish School System.

She will be dearly missed by those she loved and those who loved her.
