nanette fissell

June 8, 1962 ~ November 27, 2023

Born in: New Iberia, LA
Resided in: New Braunfels, TX

Nanette Rose Louviere Fissell, 61, was peacefully called home to God’s kingdom on November 27, 2023 in New Braunfels with her loving husband and two sons at her bedside. Born on June 8, 1962 in New Iberia, Louisiana, she was the daughter of Dennis Louviere II and Gayle Chriss Louviere and is survived by her husband of 36 years, Mark Fissell, children Alex and Collin Fissell, brothers Dennis III and Blaze Louviere, sister-in-laws Sue Fissell and Sandra Louviere, brother-in-law Dan Fissell, and 7-nieces and nephews: Conner Fissell, Evan Fissell, Katie Louviere, Kyla Pecoraro, Chaz Louviere, Jake Louviere, and Natalie Louviere. Nanette was preceded in death by both parents, her eldest son, Ryan Fissell, and brother Kevin Louviere.

Nanette loved life as a sweet southern homemaker raising 3-boys with her devoted husband while building numerous time-tested friendships living in Louisiana, California, Alaska, Oklahoma, and Texas (home for the past 21 years). Her wit and wisdom, radiant smile, unselfish care for others, and southern charm were the envy of everyone who met her. In spare time, you could normally find her cuddled-up reading one of the hundreds of novels and books she finished, singing and/or dancing any time she heard a song that got her in the groove… or simply being “the hostess with the mostest” when entertaining friends and family at home. Being true Cajun, she couldn’t wait for crawfish season to eat several pounds of crawfish and\or crab, sometimes at one sitting! Nanette was a sweet southern soul that never met a stranger and treasured real honest friendship, sometimes being too honest to those around her. Nanette was loved by many, none more than her family who witnessed her journey here on earth before earning her angel wings to heaven. Amen!

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 20, 2024 at the Lux Funeral Home Chapel at 12:00 PM shortly followed by her inurnment at Hill Country Memorial Gardens in New Braunfels, Texas.

  6. 1 believe
    In Gods master plan in our lives.
    He moves
    people in and out of each others lives, and each
    leaves his mark on the other.
    You find
    you are made up of bits and pieces of all
    who ever touched your life. and you are more because of it. and you would be
    less if they had not touched you.
    You are ever a part of my life,

  7. Dear Lord, I pray to you about my sister-in-law and her life right now. I love her like she is my own sister and I’ve never liked the in-law tag at all. I lift her up to you, that you may guide her in the midst of all she is dealing with. It’s like it’s all come down on her at once. I pray for her safety, her strength, and her peace of mind. I pray that you will be made real to her in the coming days, Lord. In the name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.
