Earle Hubert Wagley passed away at her home in Maringouin on May 27, 2019 at the age of 96. She was born in Metairie, a suburb of New Orleans on October 31, 1922 to Rodney and Magdalene Hubert. She was the eldest of three. Her younger brothers were Rodney and Jack. Her father was in the insurance business. He accepted a position in Plaquemine when Earle was four years old, and she and her brothers grew up there. They were active in the Episcopal Church, and Earle taught Sunday school during her teenage years. She went to LSU at the age of sixteen and graduated with a degree in education. Her first job as a school teacher landed her in Maringouin. She taught for thirteen years and absolutely loved her job and the children she taught!  In Maringouin, as a 20 year old school teacher, she met and fell in love with a young man by the name of Hugh Wagley. The two got married in 1945 and joined the Episcopal Church of the Nativity in Rosedale. Hugh opened a Western Auto store in Maringouin in 1949, and Earle helped him run it for many years. They were never able to have children but enjoyed 67 wonderful years together until Hugh passed away in 2012. Earle’s passions were her church, gardening, reading, cooking and entertaining friends and family. She and Hugh never missed a Sunday service except when they were fishing at Grand Isle where they owned a camp for many years. Earle is survived by three nephews – Steven, Lars and Nils Hubert who reside with their families in a suburb of Fort Worth, Texas. Services will be held at The Church of the Nativity, 15615 Laurel St., Rosedale, LA on Saturday, June 8, 2019 conducted by Rev. Mary Anne Heine. Visitation will be from 9-10 AM with services at 10AM.
