A visitation to celebrate the life of Grace Elizabeth Looper Mizell, 57, will be held from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. Thursday, May 5, 2022 at Rose-Neath Funeral, 2201 Airline Drive Bossier City, Louisiana. This will be our way to celebrate her birthday one more time and to say our final goodbyes.
Grace was born May 5, 1964 in Shreveport, Louisiana to Seth Thomas Looper and Christine Hamilton Looper. After a tough battle with some complications from a chronic illnesses Grace passed away on April 29, 2022 in Shreveport, Louisiana.
Grace was at peace when she was called on to Home. The week leading up to her passing, she let go of her biggest fear, and was finally at peace with knowing what was happening.
Grace was a homemaker for most of her life. While her sister was alive, she helped with her BBQ restaurant. She loved the horses at the training center in Benton, Louisiana. Grace was a beautiful soul to everyone who knew her. If someone needed a smile, laugh, cry or even talk Grace was the person to go to. When her life as a mother started is when she devoted all her years to her children, grandbabies and her husband. Family was always the most important thing in her life. Grace fought a long tough fight for nine years. Having her family made her fight to be here as long as she could. Without her kids and especially her grandbabies she would have been sad or even lonely and would not have put up a fight for her life the way she did.
Grace was a loving, loyal, beautiful wife to her husband Bennie Earl McGuire, Jr. for 17 years. They were each other's dearest friends. Honestly, they were each other's only friend.
Grace is preceded in death by her parents; sister and best friend, Felicia Ann Bordelon; brother, Brice Looper; grandbabies, James Looper and Devon Mizell. Left to cherish her memory is her husband, Bennie McGuire; children, Jeffrey Mizell, Felicia Mizell, Jonathan Looper, Diana Looper, Timothy Crawford, Ashley Crawford, Elizabeth Hall, Nikki Fontenot, Alissa Fontenot; 18 grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; numerous stepchildren; along with extended family members and friends.
