Ginger, have so many happy memories of your mom, from school mostly, but even seeing her after she retired. An absolutely wonderful lady who will be deeply missed by many. I know you and your family have broken 💔. She is surely in Heaven watching over all of you as a strong angel and sharing the love of being reunited with your dad and other family. She no longer is in pain or suffering... God bless and hugs to all of you.

I knew her as Mrs. Botts when I attended Mound Elementary & I will never forget her as one of my favorite teachers. She always made the day more interesting & I still remember her voice while she read to the class & the specific book. What a lovely lady who made you look forward to spending time in her class. Prayers to the family.

I enjoyed reading this nice write up about Louise and family. She certainly was one spunky little lady that made everyone smile and caught their attention. I loved seeing her dance and clap to wonderful music. She will be so missed by her family and loved ones.

So sorry for your loss. I will never forget Mrs. Botts; she was my all time favorite teacher. She was a pistol! My favorite memory of her was when the govt was talking about removing prayer from school. It was just a rumor then. After Mrs. Botts explained what was happening she said that would never happen in her class. She then had us all stand and recite the Lord's Prayer!! I loved her lots and have many great memories of her. Prayers for the family.

Mrs Botts was a very special lady. She was my teacher at Mound. My parents moved from Mark Twain school. She scared the crap out of me the first time she threw an eraser at the back of the room to get the class attention! It worked. She always made me feel loved and genuinely cared not just for me, but every student. She touched so many lives. She was my all time favorite. Whenever I saw her out, she always hugged me. Rest in heavenly peace Mrs. Botts. I will forever remember you. So many hearts ache right now. God called his Angel home!!!! All my love and prayers to your beautiful family.🙏💓🙏
