Obituary for Donita Rouse Poothullil

Donita Lentz Rouse Poothullil passed away peacefully, November 6th at the University of South Alabama Medical Center in Mobile, AL. Donita of Biloxi, MS resided at The Gardens in Ocean Springs, MS for the past four years.
Donita was preceded in death by her parents Reverend Lamont C. Rouse and Florine Broadus Rouse. She is survived by her children, Sarah Erwin (Zac and grandson Judah), Tess Holden (Mark), and Alex Poothullil (Michelle). She is also survived by two brothers, two sisters, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Donita earned her Bachelor of Science in Sociology Degree from the University of Southern Mississippi and worked as a social worker in Jackson County. She was a devout Christian leader and a certified Lay Speaker in the United Methodist Church proclaiming her love of our Lord. Her Christianity was also shown through her giving spirit.
Donita was a mother of three beautiful children who made her life a joy. She was a devoted mother and lived by the phrase, “One hundred years from now it will not matter what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had, nor what my clothes were like. But the world may be a little better because I was important in the life of a child.”
A celebration of Donita’s life will be held Friday, November 10, 2017 at 12 noon at Heritage Funeral Home, 9721 Hwy 63, Moss Point, MS 39562. The visitation will be one hour prior to the service. Interment will follow at Caswell Springs United Methodist Church Cemetery in Wade, MS.
In lieu of flowers, Donita requested tithes be made to your own churches.
