In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. John 14:2-3. Lela Aline Musson Temple, born unto the union of Ernest and Ellen (Zachary) Musson on January 4, 1927, age 91, passed peacefully in her sleep at Carpenter House in Baton Rouge, to join with our Holy Father on March 6, 2018 at 6:45 am. Lela was a graduate of Istrouma High School, class of 1946. She was born in Blanks, Louisiana, and her family later moved to Baton Rouge. She married the love of her life in 1956 and in 1970 they moved to Central, Louisiana. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, sister, aunt, and cousin, to our large family. We will all truly miss her beautiful smile and sense of humor. She loved to travel, loved her flowers, and loved her furbaby, Brees. She is survived by her husband, J.W. Temple, her daughter and son-in-law, Marilyn and Wendell Hines, their granddaughter Melanie, and great-granddaughter Halle Diel, her sisters, Addie Sanchez and Susan Berthelot, sisters-in-law Annette Zachary, Imogene Orillion, and Cathy Haase. She is preceded in death by her parents, Ernest and Ellen Musson, her sister Katie Louise Downs, brother Ernest Musson Jr., a sister-in-law JoAnn Walker, three brothers-in-law J.C. Walker, Al Haase, and Douglas Orillion. Special thanks to Lane Hospital, Our Lady of the Lake, Harvest Manor Nursing Home, Carpenter House, and all others involved in her care. We also appreciate the many friends and relatives who visited her.
