A letter from the President of the Historical Association of Central Louisiana:
Dear HACL Member:
It is with heavy heart that I inform you that our past HACL President and longstanding board member has passed away at 4 a.m. today.
Oberia, as you all know, was a workhorse in preservation and for years, she undertook projects such as the Military Museum, Fort Randolph, the Peggy Bolton Lecture Series and many others. Her attention to detail and her drive for perfection marked everything that she touched.
We will miss her greatly. A person of that caliber cannot be replaced. Please watch your paper for the arrangements. HACL will be responding appropriately in this great loss. Remember the family in your prayers.
Charles K. Charrier
