have a memory or condolence to add?


September 10, 2019

I have known Lou for about 10 years or so. We worked together at Scott & White Hospital in Round Rock when it first opened as Volunteers. We worked together for about 5 or 6 years. We worked at the Information Desk. We rode the Scott & White Shuttle Bus back and forth from Georgetown to Round Rock.

Lou was a very nice lady and we had fun working together. We worked 4 hour shifts on Thursdays. We also both went to The Worship Place in Sun City. I would always speak to her at Church on Sundays. I just found out today, 9-10-19, about her passing. I will miss her. I stopped volunteering about 8 years ago.

We send her family our sincere condolences.
