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.
