Ada Iva DeWeese of Tallulah, Louisiana, entered into God’s kingdom on Sunday, May 7, 2023, at the age of 81. She was born Ada Iva McMichael on April 1, 1942, in Cooter Point, Louisiana, to William Henry and Annie Myrtis Adcock McMichael.
If there was ever a person that left a mark, it was Ada Iva. To know her was to absolutely love her. If you didn’t have the opportunity to know Ada, you missed out. She’s the only person on the planet that lived up to having an “April Fool’s Birthday”. God definitely picked the most suiting day for this girl to be born. She never met a stranger. She had the biggest mouth and heart of anybody. She spoke her mind. She had the most inappropriate comments and stories that nobody else could have gotten away with telling. She loved to argue. She lit up a room. She had the prettiest smile. She had the funniest personality. She loved and she loved big, and most of all, she adored her family. She was so proud of her kids and grandkids.
Ada was a retired cafeteria worker and waitress. She worked at almost every restaurant in Tallulah and was loved by all who met her.
Ada is preceded in death by her parents, William Henry and Annie Myrtis Adcock McMichael; husband, James Edgar DeWeese; brothers, Lewis McMichael, Homer McMichael, Pete McMichael, Billy McMichael, and William Henry McMichael; sisters, Grace Tolbert, Beatrice Barefeild, Ora Klienman, and Sarah Jones; and son-in-law, Elmer Busby.
