Ruby Louise Tallant, known to all as Louise, met her Savior on May 16, 2020 in Corsicana, Texas. She was born to Cecil and Mary Murchison on the Caddo River near Hope, Arkansas, on November 28, 1935.

Louise had a successful 35 year career as an elementary teacher in Dawson, Texas, where she taught hundreds of 2nd and 5th grade students, including her own granddaughters. She especially loved teaching math and participating in Math UIL contests with her students. Before she entered teaching, she spent years as a bookkeeper for Corsicana National Bank and Collin Street Bakery. She later opened her own business as a tax preparer in Pursley, Texas, officing out of the home office her husband Billy built.

Louise enjoyed reading, fishing, playing games and family time. Another passion of hers was genealogy. She loved to tell stories about growing up, and about her family history. Her favorite pastime, though, was traveling. She planned many road trips with her kids all over the United States, visiting just about every state and National Park. Once the kids left home, travel continued with her husband, who traveled to Indian reservations to trade his knives and artwork. Billy made sure Louise had the most amazing turquoise jewelry collection in town! Louise was always willing to go along on adventures with her soulmate!

After retiring, she remained in Pursley, Texas until the passing of her husband, Billy Frank Tallant, Sr, in 2015, who she had been married to for almost 63 years. She then moved to Twilight Home in Corsicana, Texas until her passing. Louise will be dearly missed by her family and friends, who knew her as kind, generous, patient and sweet. She was an active founding member of Pursley Church of Christ. Her faith was her rock.

Louise is preceded in death by her husband, Billy Frank Tallant, Sr., her parents, Cecil and Mary Murchison, and her sisters, Gladdis Murchison and Vionna Razor. She is survived by her sons and daughter, Billy Frank Tallant, Jr. and wife Jayne, Jim Tallant and wife Liz, Mary (Tallant) Congleton and her husband Bruce, and David Tallant and his wife Julie. She was also a proud grandmother to nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

A graveside service will be held at the Tallant Cemetery in Pursley, Texas, On Friday, May 22 at 11:00 for family members.

An online guestbook is available at and selecting the Ruby Louise Tallant obituary.
