Nina C. Louis
June 16, 1922 – August 3, 2018
Nina Cannino Louis came into this world on June 16, 1922 and departed August 3, 2018 at the age of 96. Nina was the oldest of 8 surviving children born to Gilarmo and Camella Cannino in Hammond, Louisiana. She has many good memories to take to heaven with her, especially the family dinners and get togethers at her home. Nina married the love of her life, Pete Louis, in 1939 at the young age of 17. They moved to Houston, Texas, and raised their sons, John Joseph Louis, born in 1941 and James Edward Louis, born in 1944. Nina was an excellent cook and kept her home looking like the interior of a Southern Living Magazine ad. Nina and Pete were very active in churchwork at St. Dominic Catholic Church, 8215 Reservoir St., Houston, Texas. Nina is preceded in death by her parents, Gilarmo and Camella Cannino; her husband, Pete Louis; her son, James Edward Louis; sisters Geneva Henderson and Marie Bennett; brothers, Joseph Cannino and Russell Cannino. She is survived by her siblings, Dominick Cannino, Frank Cannino, and Jeananne Haughey-Milton. Her son, John Joseph Louis and wife Pat Louis; her daughters-in-law, Sheila Louis and Betty Roesler Louis. Her grandchildren, Lisa Louis Usry, Kellie Louis Gomez, Kim Louis Hughes, Kevin Louis, and Jennifer Cole Kline. Her great-grandchildren, Cody Usry, Travis Usry, Kaitlyn Gomez, Alyssa Hughes, Allison Gomez, Olivia Hughes, Brenden Kline, and Mia Kline. Also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, and other relatives. The family extends a special thank you to Hospice Plus staff, nurses, and caregivers. Also, a special thank you to the caregivers and staff at Avid Care cottage in Conroe, Texas and owner Adel Givens, who gave that extra touch of love and genuine compassion in the care needs for our Nina. Though we will all miss her terribly, we know she is looking forward to being reunited with her loved ones in heaven; God bless you, dear Nina, as we celebrate our special memories of you while you were here with each of us...you are now with the angels and soaring high.
