Marlin Jean (Russell) Doucet went to meet her Lord on March 29th, 2018. There to meet her was her mother, Minnie Beulah (Rollings) Russell, and her father, Harlin Russell.

Born in Smackover, Arkansas on December 5th, 1932, she soon moved to Louisiana where she later met the man that would be her husband of 66 years, Harold Joseph Doucet.

She was a founding member of the First Baptist Church in Golden Meadow, Louisiana and was one of the longest attending members.

Marlin Jean received her Masters degree in Early Childhood Education from Nicholls State University. She spent 20 years teaching kindergarten and lower elementary grades in Golden Meadow and Galliano, Louisiana. She was a faithful servant of God and played piano, sang and taught Sunday school at church and was a wonderful mother and loving wife. She was a very busy woman blessed by God.

In 2009, Marlin Jean pulled anchor and left the bayou to settle in the coastal community of Brunswick, Georgia. She quickly found a church and made friends in her neighborhood. She continued to serve the Lord by helping and witnessing to those in need until God called her to her final home.

She is survived by her husband, Harold Doucet, sons Randall Doucet, Brian Doucet and Juan Correa; granddaughters Lauren Doucet and Bay Doucet; and the most wonderful daughter in laws, Karen Doucet, Lim Teng Teng and Sonia Correa; and nephews and nieces. She was preceded in death by her twin brother, Harlin Dean, and sisters, Mildred, Jesse Dixon Abney and Doris Remont.

A memorial service will be held at Northside Baptist Church in Brunswick, Georgia on April 7th at 11 a.m. and also at the First Baptist Church in Golden Meadow, Louisiana on April 7th at 10 a.m.
