So sorry to hear of Louise's passing. She was a delight every time we saw her at St. James Church. She made working at our rummage sales fun and she will be so missed by all. The world is certainly a little less now, but heaven all the fuller.

Louise accepted people into her heart so easily. I enjoyed her always open door and generous spirit. She will be deeply missed by everyone who knew her, especially the "Snocap Christmas Tree" family.

Sweet Louise -- What a loving and generous person. I met her through her dedicated volunteer work for the Mason Area Historical Society. She ALWAYS had a kind word to share and valued everyone's contribution to any project. My life was enriched by knowing her.

She was so proud of her family, and her love for Cal was boundless. I join so many others in sending heartfelt condolences to her family and friends who mourn her earthly loss the most. Yet I know you find comfort knowing she has returned to the loving arms of the God she served so well. Bless you .
