Louise was a loyal and kind friend for many people. She loved to keep up with everyone of her friends new and old. She loved meeting with her quilting friends and sharing her knowledge and love to all.

I certainly remember those great Monday nights at Louise's house with the quilting friends. I was a new quilter. It was so much fun. I really enjoyed the Christmas parties . I only went to two . When Louise's health deteriorated and she could no longer live at home there no more parties. She was a wonderful sweet lady and I always remember the times I spent with her and the other fellow quilters on those nights we met. Rest with the Lord Louise . You will be missed.
