Cheryl and I are friends. We would drive by the store to see her mom or go by the apartment on Laxton. Louise was always a fun person to be around. I am so sorry for your loss. I saw her face and immediately knew who she was. I haven't seen Cheryl or her mom for a while but, the friendship shall remain in tact. I love you "Woody".

I have some fond memories of Louise when I was young. Hanging out with her girls, my cousins; Cheryl, Rhonda and Shawn. She was always making us laugh and very welcoming. Time and miles unfortunately kept us from having more memories, but I'm blessed to have the ones I do of her, and will continue to carry those close at heart. May God take care of you Louise, until we can have a reunion one day! Love and hugs to the family!

I worked for Mrs. Louise at the Smoke Stack for 2 years and she treated me as if I were family. She always looked out for me and made sure I was taken care of as I worked my way through college. She was always so thoughtful and generous to all of her employees. Mrs. Louise always patiently listened to my problems or adventures and gave me advice. When I left that job to pursue my career in teaching, she wasn’t mad, but helped celebrate my career. She (along with the other employees at that time) got me a name plate for my new desk. I no longer live in that area, but I never forgot our time spent together.

Louise (Granny) was such a light in my life. We had long discussions about life and many hours visiting on my bi-weekly visits the last few years. She was one tough lady who always wanted to hear everything going on in my life, and had no trouble telling me her trials and tribulations. Through our conversations I learned alot about life. We laughed and cried together many times. I loved her like she was my own family. I know the pain of loosing her is hurting everyone she's ever known. She was always a bright light in my life that seems so dark now without her in it. I think of her every single day with memories flooding in. I will miss breakfast with her and all her crazy stories...lol I will never think of a butter biscuit without her popping in my mind. She loved them butter biscuits!
Rhonda, Cheryl and Shawn my heart hurts for all of you. ❤ I pray peace finds a way into your hearts.

Too many memories to write just one. She was the kindest, funniest and most loving person I’ve know. Aunt Louise, the memories I have of you will always bring a smile.
Rhonda , Wilbert, Marie, Shawn, Cheryl thinking of you all. Prayers and loving hugs. Aunt Louise will be missed

To the entire family of Louise
Will keep each of you in prayers as you go through the days and weeks ahead. I truly enjoyed calling on your mom throughout the years she was at Workman. She was always full of laughter and spunk. I know she will be missed by each of you.

With sympathy.
