The lake area said good-bye to a long-time state lawmaker Saturday.

Margaret Welsh Lowenthal was laid to rest at Trinity Baptist Church Saturday morning.

She died last week in a Houston hospital.

Lowenthal served in the state house of representatives from 1980 to 1989 and before that was one of the first women ever elected to the Calcasieu Police Jury.

Our thoughts are with her family.
