Ellie Elizabeth Carter John

Funeral services for Ellie Elizabeth Carter John of Monroe, Louisiana are scheduled for Tuesday, July 11, 2023. Visitation 10:00 A.M., service 11:00 A.M. at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in Monroe, LA with Rev. R. B. Moore, Rev. Marshall Sevier, and Rev. Henry Stone officiating. She was born on October 24, 1953, in Stuttgart, Germany to her parents, Colonel Hamlet and Elizabeth Carter. She went to her heavenly home on July 3, 2023.

Ellie, known to her family as Emme, was proud to have been an “Army Brat”. She loved traveling and living in different parts of the world with her family. In 1966, Colonel Carter retired from the Army and went on to teach at then NLU. Ellie was one of the students in the first class of Dental Hygiene at NLU. She continued her love of dentistry for the next 45 years and taught for 25 years in the dental hygiene clinic at ULM. Ellie touched many lives during her career as a hygienist and teacher.

While at NLU, she was a member of Phi Mu Sorority, homecoming queen and KA Rose. It was here that she met the father of her sons, Stuart Moberley. Edwin and Carter were the lights of her life. She lived for them. She loved being a boy mom and going to baseball, football, and soccer games. She lived for Friday nights and the stadium in Tallulah.

Once the grandchildren arrived Ellie’s passion shifted to them.  She rarely missed any events the grandchildren participated in.  Dancing, Theatre, Softball, Baseball & Football.  She loved watching them grow and succeed.  She doted over all of her grandchildren and rarely, if ever, were they not mentioned in any conversation that she had.  Ellie loved her grandchildren and really made the holidays special for them, especially Christmas Eve Eve at Emme’s house. Ellie’s last days were spent watching her favorite baseball team, the Diamond Jax and her favorite player, #2.

In 1993, Ellie married her soulmate, Howard John. They continued their love of dentistry and built a new dental office in 2000. Howard understood her better than anyone and she adored him. Their life was one of adventure and expanding their knowledge of dentistry. Howard accepted Edwin and Carter as his sons. In 2009, Howard built her a new home in Delhi, Louisiana so that she could be close to her family in Tallulah.

Ellie was a member of the ADHA association, St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, and Phi Mu Alumni. She loved her church and when in Delhi, attended the Delhi United Methodist and Tallulah Methodist with her family.

Ellie is survived by her husband, Howard. Her two sons, Edwin Moberley, Carter Moberley and wife Jennifer. Sister Nancy Holloway and husband Don; brother Edgar C. Carter and wife Nancy; Stepchildren, Michelle John, Dustin John, and Daniel John and wife Jesse; Seven grandchildren, Julia Moberley, Luke Moberley, Elle Moberley, Ava Carter Moberley, Eva Katherine Moberley, Gradyon John, and Chloe John. Special niece, Robin Holloway. Nephews Matthew Carter, Benjamin Carter and Coleman Holloway.

Due to no remains, there will be no pallbearers, but Ellie was adamant that we listed her honorary pallbearers: Mr. Gary Graham, Mr. Joe Farr, Mr. Jeffrey Nick (5th son), Mr. Matthew Carter, Mr. Benjamin Carter, and Mr. Coleman Holloway.
