March 7, 1955 – January 15, 2022
Gwendolyn Ann Sons Elliott, 66, of Morgan City, peacefully entered her heavenly home on January 15, 2022 surrounded by loved ones. Gwen’s loss was sudden and unexpected, and the family is shocked and deeply saddened.
Gwen was born on March 7, 1955 in Morgan City, Louisiana, to Wallace James and Eva Rita Sons, Sr. Gwen met her soulmate, Charles Edward Elliott, and they soon married. Their family later grew to include their only child, Chancelyn.
Over the years, Gwen worked in several retail positions where she was able to use her nurturing personality to help the public. After leaving the retail market, Gwen took these skills and began to care for the elderly and infirm in our community as a personal homecare attendant. Through those years, she grew very close to the families she had the privilege to serve. In her free time, Gwen enjoyed spending time with her friends and family, shopping, embroidering, and spoiling her fur babies. Gwen’s love of angels, eagles, dolphins, and shoes held a very special place in her heart.
Visitation will be at Hargrave Funeral Home on Friday, January 21, 2022 from 10am to 2:30pm. Her Home Going Celebration at 2:30pm will be officiated by Reverend Christopher Steele of Baton Rouge. Gwen will be laid to rest in the Morgan City Cemetery with her late husband, Charles.
Gwen is survived by her daughter, Chancelyn Marie Dorsey Elliott Kelly, and her husband Blaine of Napoleonville; her grandson, Camren Elliott of Baton Rouge; her granddaughter, Alyssa Kelly of Baton Rouge; her sister, Virginia Sons Elliott of Morgan City; her sister, Donna Sons Harrison of Morgan City; her brother-in-law, Leland Tony Harrison of Patterson; her brother, Wallace “Buck” Sons, Jr and his wife, Barbara of Bayou Blue; several nieces, nephews, grandnieces, and grandnephews; and her cherished fur babies, Cursa and Casper.
Gwen is preceded in death by her husband, Charles Edward Elliott; her sister, Jane Marie Dorsey; her parents, Wallace and Eva Sons; and her nephew, Jason Paul Sons.
