Elizabeth Kirchberg Obituary

Elizabeth Louise (Cruchon) Kirchberg, a longtime residence of New Orleans, LA, passed away quietly Dec. 16,2023, at her assisted living center, Vista Shores. She was born January 11, 1937, to the late parents, Theodore A. and Edna E. Cruchon of New Madrid, Mo. 

She attended Immaculate Conception School and New Madrid High. Upon graduation, she was employed with Civil Service, residing in Memphis, Tn. before joining Southern Airlines as a stewardess, and becoming a supervisor. She had a successful career in management with the airlines for many years. During this time, Louise met her future husband, Karl Kirchberg, of New Orleans. Louise was also an avid bridge player and enjoyed her Real Estate Days. Louise was one in a million, and her laugh was infectious. She always visited friends, bringing gifts and gladly sharing her wisdom with anyone who asked. Louise could talk to anyone and make them feel like the most important person in the room. She opened her heart and her home to friends and family anytime. Louise loved her roots in New Madrid and was known by the Cruchon Family as the Queen Bee. 

She is survived by her sisters, Nadean Cruchon of Memphis, Tn, Gwendolyn Cruchon of Austin, Texas, nieces and nephews Jimmy Lynn Thompson, Stephenie and Taylor Hatch, Renee Rearick and Ted Cruchon., Jr. She is preceded in death by Sisters, Patsy (Coon)Thompson, and Mary Jane Cruchon, brothers David and Ted Cruchon, Jr. and many great nieces, nephews, and cousins. 

A special Thank you to Vista Shores of New Orleans for the excellent care and love she received. A Crematory Service will follow on a later date at Evergreen Cemetery, New Madrid, MO. 

A Memorial can be made in Louiseā€™s name to Immaculate Conception School, New Madrid, MO.
