Louise H. Rhodes, 103, of Benton passed away Feb. 4, 2014.
She was born April 1, 1910, to the late Dave and Eva Collatt. She was a lifetime member of the First United Methodist Church.
She taught at Bennett School, provided books for the Gann Memorial Library, was a guard at Reynolds Metals Co. during World War II and worked for the Red Cross for 41 years.
Louise was known as the â€śRed Cross Lady.â€ť
She loved to read until losing her eyesight. Louise loved talking to people and telling stories to a captivated audience.
BENTON â€“ Just as in their blowout loss at El Dorado (49-25) on Tuesday, the Benton Lady Panthers held a three-point lead at halftime against the Pine Bluff Fillies at Benton Arena on Tuesday, but couldnâ€™t hold on and fell 38-36 in 7A/6A South Conference play.
â€śWe just had a couple things not go our way,â€ť Benton Coach Jerry Chumley said. â€śIt was a battle right there to the end. We were down, fought hard and gave ourselves a chance to tie and win it, we just didnâ€™t make it happen there at the end.â€ť
