Emeline Brooks Reeder

Ms. Emeline Brooks Reeder was born December 27, 1942, in Shreveport, LA, and passed away December 7, 2023 in Monroe, LA. She was a model for some stores in the mall. She was a teacher for Monroe City schools and Ouachita Parish schools for more than 30 years. After retiring, she taught English as a second language at Learning Tech. Ms. Reeder also played in bands that would visit local nursing homes.

Ms. Reeder was preceded in death by her son, Julian Mark Reeder.

 Survivors include her daughter, Rachel Reeder Thurber of Monroe, LA; grandson, Robert Dylan Thurber of Lufkin, TX; and brother, Julian Dodd Brooks, Jr. of Clinton, MS.

The family would like to give a special thank you to Ms. Reeder’s Parkview Baptist family.

A memorial service for Ms. Reeder will be held at a later date.


She saunters in the room captivating hearts with her flair.

From the elegance of her wardrobe to the style of her hair.

Emitting virtues akin to the status of a royal.

Ambassadress of compassion, and empathy is the fruit of her toil.

She’s majestic, dignified, and glorious to name a few.

The definitive roles applied just minutes after meeting you.

Surviving unspeakable suffrages etched in your past.

Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, you’re built to last.

Deriving from an ancestry of educators, stewards, Samaritans, and poets.

Uncommon and excellence is in your lineage, your life’s work definitely shows it.

Concluding, your aura is like a rainbow and a zephyr dancing from the sea.

That’s who you are, that’s what you do for others, my ode to Ms. Emy.
