Olga Ann Haik Porteous, a retired teacher, entered into eternal rest on August 15, 2013 at Ochsner-Baptist Hospital. Age 72 Years. Olga Porteous is survived by her husband of 49 years, John Courtney Porteous, III. Mother of Courtney Ann Porteous Millet (Leandre) and Susan Carol Porteous Campbell (John) of LaPlace. Grandmother of Leandre Michael Millet, Jr., Jeffrey Porteous Millet, John Royce Campbell, Jr., and Kelly Haik Campbell. Near the end of her life Olga was surrounded by so many family and friends as she went through the pain of dialysis and other physical sufferings. God saw she was getting tired so he closed her weary eyes, took her hand and whispered "Olga, come with Me." With tearful hearts we watched her fade away. Her generous heart of gold stopped beating, and her tired body came to a peaceful rest. Olga joins her brother Hilliard Michael Haik, M.D., and sister Carol Haik Eyrich in eternal rest along with her parents the late Alex and Evelyn Haik of Reserve. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, teacher and friend and a long time member of St. Peter Catholic Church.
