I remember Louise and her husband George quite well. I would like to extend my sincere condolences to her entire family. Hold your memories close to your heart.
Doug, Kenneth, Lu Ann & Georgette, Please accept my sincerest condolences and sympathy on the loss of your Mother. Time passes by so quickly and I don't forget the days in Funkstown when she was the Cub Scout Den Mother for the troop I was in and meeting in your home's basement. It's clear that her traits to be active and involved carried through several career and civic endeavors. Mothers hold their children's hands for a sort while, but their hearts forever. You're in my thoughts and prayers at this sorrowful time as you mourn her loss. Dennis Ruth, Corvallis, Oregon.
Sorry I will not be able to come to the viewing. I have fond memories of working with Louise buying small estates and selling things at auction and the flea market. So sorry for your loss we will all miss her. God bless you all and give you comfort and peace.
She will always be Aunt Louise to me She did want to make it to 90. I'll miss her and our family talks.
