In Memoriam – Longtime BPT political columnist Marty Carlson passes away


The Bossier Press-Tribune was informed early this morning that our longtime political columnist and friend Marty Carlson passed away very early this morning. Arrangements are pending at this time.

We do know, however, that a memorial service is tentatively planned for later on this week at River Valley Church located at 3800 Viking Drive in Bossier City.

We will post further information as it is made available to us.

Our sincere heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with both Marty’s family and her friends at this time.

This is a huge loss for both our BPT family/staff and also the Bossier community at large – as Marty was the “In The Know” person when it involved Bossier politics in any manner whatsoever. Marty was highly respected and we will all miss her tremendously!

We have already had several phone calls and messages coming in to our office this morning  as the news of Marty’s passing is being made known.

  1. She was both loved and feared by the politicians. If I ever needed to know what was really going on in politics, Marty was always only a phone call away. Truly a unique individual. Her heart was as large as her ability to analyze situations and write about them in an easy to understand manner. She will truly be missed. An incredible lady.

  2. My prayers and condolences to Marty’s family. She was a true friend to Bossier City and she will be dearly missed. I always enjoyed my talks with Marty and will miss her, she was a great lady, Pam Glorioso
