Mrs. Causey was born in Frankisch Crumbach, Germany on September 3, 1938 and died on May 16, 2012 in Ruston, LA. Ilse was known and loved by the Ruston community for her caring attention to detail in her work and her divine cheesecakes. She was a world class cook, talented decorator and expert gardener, in her element when cooking for her family and entertaining the “German Ladies” of Northeast Louisiana in high style.

Ilse’s flair for decorating and creative food presentations were legendary, and Ilse always said she learned everything about gracious living and entertaining from her long time friend and mentor, the late Jo Anne Maxwell. Mr. Maxwell took Ilse under his wing when she worked for him at the Holiday Inn/Maxwell’s Restaurant. Ilse’s family is grateful to the Maxwell’s for their kindness and friendship.

The Kiwanis Club of Ruston made Ilse an honorary member in 1993 in recognition of her long standing dedication and service to their organization. Ilse will truly be missed.
