Carolyn Jane McElveen Baham, devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend passed away on January 17, 2023. She was 93 years old, and throughout her life was known for her nurturing, kind, and thoughtful ways. She was a person of very strong faith and a lifelong member of the First Baptist Church of Independence, Louisiana. She truly had the heart of a servant and was always there to support, encourage, and advocate for anyone in need. In early adulthood she was employed by Lallie Kemp Hospital in Independence, where she took X-ray dictation and worked in the business office. Later in life she was part owner of Buster's Furniture in Amite, Louisiana, serving primarily as office manager and administrator.
She was preceded in death by her husband, L.E. "Buster" Baham, and her brother, R.E. McElveen, Jr.
She is survived by her daughters, Martha Buchanan and Rebecca Fabre (Jody), her granddaughter, Colleen Fabre, siblings Elsie Danley and Jerry McElveen (Sue), and numerous beloved nieces and nephews.
Due to recent exposure to Covid among family members, a private graveside service was held on Saturday, January 28, 2023 at Amite Memorial Gardens. A celebration of life service for family and friends will be held on Saturday, March 18, 2023 at 1:00PM at First Baptist Church in Independence.
Her family gratefully acknowledges the kind and loving care provided by New Hope Manor skilled nursing facility in Cedar Park, Texas and Silverado Hospice of Austin, Texas.
