Loraine Herring Post (12-20-2012)
Mrs. Loraine Herring Post passed peacefully from this life at her home in Luling, Louisiana on November 24, 2012, after a courageous and lengthy illness. She was born in Smackover, Arkansas on July 9, 1931 to the union of Davis and Effie Nash Herring. Her childhood and early adulthood were spent in El Dorado, and she never lost her love of her home town. Mrs. Post was married to Gerald Post on July 21, 1950, and a few years later they relocated to Luling, where she spent the remainder of her life.

Visitation followed, under the direction of Falgout Funeral Home.
