Evelyn Earline Greer Rutledge

2019 Celebration of Life Evelyn Earline Greer Rutledge — Sept. 18, 1927-Nov. 7, 2015

A Celebration of Life service for Evelyn Earline Greer Rutledge will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 30, 2019, at First United Methodist Church, Monroe. Immediately following this service will be a brief interment service for Earline and her husband Jack Elwood Rutledge, at Mulhearn Memorial Park Cemetery.

Mrs. Rutledge, 88, passed away Saturday, Nov. 7, 2015, in her sleep, in Radcliff, Ky. Prior to her move to Elizabethtown, Ky., in 2012, Earline had resided in Monroe, with her husband Jack since 1946.

She was a native of Rayville. Earline grew up in the Greer Community, attended Greer Community School with her siblings and cousins, and graduated from Rayville High School in 1944. She pursued a career in bookkeeping at Northeast Center of Louisiana State University, Monroe (ULM), and she graduated with an associate degree in 1946. Earline was keeping books for Wilkerson Motors in Monroe, when she met and married Jack Elwood Rutledge. They married at the parsonage of First Methodist Church, West Monroe, in the fall of 1946.

The couple built the home they lived in for almost 60 years, one room at a time, as they could save to buy the materials. Earline continued working as a bookkeeper until their daughter, Pam was born. Beginning in 1965, she began working as a substitute teacher and touched many young lives. Earline also worked as a Louisiana State Civil Service test administrator from 1980’s until 2012. She and Jack were active members of Memorial United Methodist Church in Monroe until their move to Elizabethtown, Ky., in 2012, to be close to their daughter, Pam, son-in-law, Bill and grandson, James. Jack passed away August 2012, in Elizabethtown.

Earline loved the beauty of nature, simple pleasures, family, and home. It is right that she returns home to Monroe where she and Jack will rest beside their infant daughter, Debra Denise.

Earline is preceded in death by her beloved husband, Jack; an infant daughter, Debra Denise; her parents, William H.C. “Hezzie Greer and Viola Bell Laird Greer; three brothers, infant J.W. Greer, Warren P. Greer, and Allen H. Greer; and two sisters, Hazel G. Hoben, & LaValle G. Stuart.

She is survived by one daughter, Pamela Ridlon, who teaches school at Ft. Knox, Kentucky; son-in-law; Bill, LTC (Ret), USAR and an Army civilian attorney at Ft. Knox; grandchildren, Will Ridlon, Kansas City, Mo.; MAJ Michael George and Sarah L. Ridlon, US Army, USAF Command & Staff College, Maxwell Air Force Base, Montgomery, Ala.; and James Ridlon, Elizabethtown, Ky.; two brothers, W.A. “Dub” Greer, and George Wesley “Wenchy” Greer, Rayville; and two much loved little dogs, Sarah Mae and Merry Bell.
