Obituary for Jimmie "Jene" Elvie June Bogle Suggs

Jimmie Elvie June Bogle Suggs, known to her family and friends as Jene, age 69, passed away peacefully January 20, 2023, in Shreveport, Louisiana surrounded by her daughter and grandchildren. She was born November 19, 1953, to the late Charles Lindbergh Bogle and Mary Lois James Morgan in Amarillo, Texas. Jimmie was raised in Salem, Oregon with her siblings, Darlene, Jerry Lynn, and Charles. She would later go on to marry her first love, Larry Ozal Brinlee in 1972. From this marriage, she had one child, a son, Larry Ward Brinlee. Through their military travels they finally settled at Fort Polk, Louisiana. Years later she would remarry, and from this marriage a daughter was born, Autumn. In 1988, Jimmie and Autumn moved to East Prairie, Missouri where she would remarry Tommy Lee Suggs. In the winter of 2007, Jimmie and Tommy moved to Leesville, Louisiana to be with their children and grandchildren. On October 20, 2013, she rededicated her life to Christ and was baptized at South Park Baptist Church by Brother Jesse Buck.

After the passing of her late husband, Tommy, in 2016, she went home to Oregon to care for her father. For many years in Salem, she devoted her time to volunteering in several organizations, such as homeless shelters, soup kitchens, and her favorite, a local nursing home as well as caring for an elderly man, Mr. George. This suited her servant’s heart. Mom would say, “Do what’s right and do what’s good. Be kind and help others. The world can always use one more kind person.” Her life was a living example of her favorite Bible verse, Ephesians 4:32 – “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.” In 2019, Jimmie was ready to come home to be with her children and grandkids. Her health then began to decline, but she stayed true to her fighting personality.

Jimmie was preceded in death by her husband, Tommy Lee Suggs; father, Charles “Charlie” Lindbergh Bogle; mother, Mary Lois Morgan & stepfather William “Bill” Joseph Morgan; sister, Jerri Lynn Garrison; and great-grandson, Tyler Lee Benson.

Jimmie is survived by her son, Larry Brinlee (Misti) of Cottonport, LA; daughter, Autumn Davis of Slagle, LA; two daughters that she loved as her own, Amber Miller (Christopher) of East Prairie, MO and Katherine Champagne (Christopher) of Leesville, LA.

She is also survived by her grandchildren, Heather Brinkley (Jeremay) of Simpson, LA, Haylee Brinlee of Lake Charles, LA, Hope Brinlee of Leesville, LA, Peyton & Brett Dupre of Cottonport, LA, Cryslen & Christen Foster of Slagle, LA, Gaige & Hailey Gifford and Alison & Shooter Miller of East Prairie MO; Madison & Cole Sanders, and Jacob, Aiden, & Zachary Champagne of Leesville, LA and four great-grandchildren, Conner, Trev, Freya Brinkley-Brister, and Michael Vargas.

Also left to cherish her memory are her sister, Darlene Downey of Salem, OR; brother, Charles Bogle of Sikeston, MO; and a host of several nieces and nephews.

A memorial for her life will be celebrated at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to her two favorite charities – St. Jude’s and Louisiana Shriners.

Our family would like to extend a very sincere thank you to our mom’s very special friend, MaryLynn. She made our lives a little easier by caring for our mother. Also, we thank Dr. Michael Johnson and the team at Byrd Hospital and the entire ICU staff at LSU-Shreveport, especially Dr. Self. We cannot thank you all enough. Elaring Caring Home Health – I will forever be grateful for each of you.
