Obituary ~ Laura Alice Guchereau Portwood:

Laura Alice Guchereau Portwood, 78, died peacefully in her home surrounded by her loving family on Monday, Oct. 30, 2017.

Alice was born Sept. 24, 1939, and was a life-long resident of Vicksburg. She graduated from St. Francis Xavier Academy in 1957 before attending the University of Mississippi where she was voted “Campus Cutie”.
She was a loving mother to three children, five wonderful grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.
Alice hosted every family Christmas and Thanksgiving gathering in her home for more than twenty years.
For decades, Alice worked as the office manager for the City of Vicksburg Water and Gas. She was an active member of Hawkins United Methodist Church and the Vicksburg Art Association.
Like her mother, Alice loved to paint and was wonderful with oil paints. She enjoyed playing bridge and golfing in her younger days.
Alice was deeply rooted in her Vicksburg heritage as the great-great-granddaughter of Dr. William T. and Emma Balfour, John Alexander and Elizabeth Klein, who were instrumental in establishing Vicksburg as a thriving community.
She is preceded in death by Laura Russell Guchereau Jacobson, Charles Miller Guchereau and Bob Portwood.
Survivors include her sister, Pamela Guchereau Melsheimer of Vickburg; three children, Pamela Portwood McFerrin and her husband, Elvin of Vicksburg, Robert Portwood and his wife, Leigh of Clinton, and Jeff Portwood and his wife, Tracy of Lufkin, Texas; nephew, Ross Melsheimer of Brandon; grandchildren, Barry Barnett and his wife, Beth of Vicksburg, Katie Barnett of Smyrna, Ga., Shelby Portwood of Dallas, Texas, John Portwood of Lufkin Texas, and Marleigh Portwood of Clinton; and great-grandchildren, Hali Klein Barnett, and Lexi and Lili Kistler, all of Vicksburg. 
Pallbearers will be Barry Barnett, John Portwood, Ross Melsheimer, Mike Gatti, Rusty Davis, and Michael Castelane.  
Honorary pallbearers include Windel Wilson, Alice Daniels, and Janice Harrison.  
The family would like to give a special thanks to Private Home Care caregivers, Delta Dialysis, and Camellia Home Health and Hospice. 
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a donation be made in Alice’s name to the Vicksburg Warren Humane Society or Blair E. Batson Children’s Hospital.

Sorority Sister's Hip Surgery Tomorrow

Please keep our sorority sister, Ina Lott Whittington in your prayers.  She will be having another hip replacement tomorrow.  She had her first one in 2010 and her second one a few weeks ago.  A part had to be made for her upcoming surgery because the last one failed.  Ina is resting at Heritage House Nursing Home in Vicksburg and will be returning there after her surgery to recuperate.  

UPDATE on Ina Lott Whittington. She is through hip surgery and there was not much bone to work with so she will have to heal for 6 weeks before she can try to walk to let some bone heal around what they put in per her daughter, Rhonda. Thanks for all the prayers and please continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers while she recovers.

Ina is back in Heritage House Nursing Home recuperating.  Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers because she will have a long recovery and may be in the nursing home for awhile.  Will keep you updated on her progress.
