Nelda Anna (Doguet) Cowart, 74, was called home by her Father in Heaven on Thursday April 18, 2019.

Nelda and her husband of nearly 30 years, Owen Cowart, were long-time residents of Pensacola and Pace, Florida. Nelda was born and raised in Orangefield, Texas. She was a member of Christian Life Church in Milton, Florida, and served both as a lay pastor and on the prayer team.

Professionally, Nelda served as a cardiac nurse at West Florida Medical Center in the office of her boss and friend Dr. Bruce McCraw for 20 years. She had a huge heart for her patients, and always went above and beyond to ensure they were well cared for.

Nelda was very generous with her time and talents, always willing to help a soul in need. She served as a volunteer for numerous church activities and events, as well as at the Pregnancy Resource Center in Milton. She had a youthful joy in her voice, and everyone who met her was drawn in by her warm smile. She absolutely loved the beach!!

She will be missed by many family members and friends, and especially by her husband Owen, her children and grandchildren, nieces and nephews: sons Gregory and his children Orion and Hunter; Richard and his wife Karen and their children Corey and Jordan; David and his children Storm and Sloane, and Christopher and his wife Nikki and their children Noah, Caleb, Joshua and Hannah.

Her nieces and nephews, many like her own children, include from her brother Berchman, Veronica Lynn, Lloyd, Gene, Charlie, and Brian; from her brother Loubert, Nick and Yancy; and from her brother James and his wife Marion, Atecia, Nicky and J.R.

She was preceded in death by her father and mother, Wesley and Lillian (Gaspard) Doguet, and her three brothers Berchman, Loubert and James.

A celebration of life will be at Christian Life Church Tuesday, April 23 at 2 PM, located at 4401 Avalon Blvd, Milton, FL.

Final resting place will be Barrancas National Cemetery in Pensacola, Florida.

A donation in lieu of flowers can be made in her name to the Pregnancy Resource Center, 5736 Stewart Street, Milton, Florida. To send flowers in memory of Nelda, please visit the Trahan Funeral Home Heartfelt Sympathies Store.

Nelda was a superb cardiac nurse (and friend) in the many years she worked in my office .Even more so ,our patients were her friends as well and she most often knew more than I of their personal trials , not always related to their illnesses ,in confidence of course ,and encouraged them in all aspects of their lives . I recall picking up the phone occasionally (wrong line) and a patient saying hello but it was not me but rather Nelda to whom they wished to speak ! Her medical challenges increased over the years ,but with the assistance of her husband ,Owen , her faith ,and her family and many friends ,she met the challenges as well as one could . She was the good person we would all wish to be . Bruce McCraw MD
