She was born 17 July 1917 in Norfolk, Va to Paul Phelps and Millie Gurley (White) Phelps. She and her siblings grew up in the Mills home in Thomasville, NC (now Baptist Children’s Home of North Carolina). She lived in Raleigh, NC nearly all her adult life.

She is also survived by 9 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren, 1 great-great-grandchild, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Louise was a wonderful person, an inspiration to her family, and she provided a loving and happy atmosphere for everyone who knew her. She loved traveling and camping at their beach-trailer. She always made friends wherever she went, and those friendships were cherished. We will all miss her.
