Louise was a beautiful neighbor with an indomitable sprit and generous heart. She was lively and engaged in life around her. Creative and tasteful, she decorated her home according to the seasons in a welcoming manner. She never gave up, and pushed herself gamely to stay active. Her daughters and their families, her plants, and her relationship to God were priorities to the end. We miss her already but know that she lives in freedom with Christ, free from pain, free from limitations, free to live eternally. She was blessed with 6 sensational daughters who dedicated themselves to her daily care. Blessings to all of you and your wonderful husbands who aerved willingly at your sides to minister to Louise’s needs. You were her treasures and are now her legacy.
I will always remember the great times we spent at Aunt Louise’s house playing in the basement or in the wading pool in the yard with Janet and Nancy. She was a great cook and homemaker. She was an inspiring mother who lost her husband too soon. I am sure she is with him in paradise.
Eileen & Family,
Deepest sympathy on the loss of your mom.
She looks young for 101 yrs old and you look like her so much.
Hope all the great memories help with your grief,Cindy Walz
