Ernestine Ann Johnson Higgins Olds, a native and lifelong resident of Charenton, passed away at her home on Saturday, June 1, 2024, at the age of 87.

Ann, as she was lovingly known by all, was born on August 20, 1936 and was the eldest of three children born to the union of Charles and Ernestine Johnson. She was an original and lifelong member of Little Pass Baptist Church in Charenton and was a woman of strong faith in the Lord. She could always be found with that beautiful smile on her face and a kind word for all. Ann took great pleasure in the simple things in life, especially tending to her yard and her flower beds. She also had a love of cooking and baking, sharing talents with others, and traveling. This side of eternity will be a lot less bright without her beautiful presence.

Her memory will forever live on in the hearts of her family she leaves behind; her grandson, Richard “Joey” Higgins and his wife Sarah Higgins; her granddaughter, Sherry Pinell and her husband Cody; numerous great grandchildren; one great great grandson; and a host of nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.

Those she is reunited with include her first husband, James “Hockey” Higgins Sr.; her second husband, Charles L. Olds; her five children, Richard “Ricky” Higgins, Vernon “Bubba” Higgins, David Higgins, James “Jamie” Higgins Jr., and Elaine Ann “Lulu” Higgins; her parents, Charles L. Johnson Jr. and Ernestine Darden Johnson Walls; and her brothers, Will James “Jimmy” Johnson and Charles Sterling “Toupee” Johnson Sr.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, June 8th, at Ibert’s Mortuary in Franklin at 12:00 noon with Rev. Dr. Chris Holloway officiating. The family requests that visiting hours be observed from 9:00 AM until service time. Following services she will be laid to rest in the Chitimacha Mausoleum in Charenton. Those honored to serve as pallbearers include Mark Johnson, Cheries Burgess, Robert Compton, Cory Compton, Paul Proctor, and Charles Johnson, with Rusty Persilver as honorary pallbearer.

The family would like to express their deepest gratitude to Ms. Ann’s caregivers, Demara DeMarco, Jeana Arnaud, Ebani Landry, Rayne and Ahtajday Phillips, McKenna Higgins, and MaShaylia Elzy; as well as the staff of St. Joseph Hospice.
