A devoted and loving wife, mother and grandmother, Louise was a wonderful homemaker. She loved tending to her flowers, boating, fishing, camping and shopping, but her greatest joy came from spending time with her grandchildren. She loved animals and often supported humane societies. She also loved traveling to the Smoky Mountains, so much so that she and Ernie would eventually move there to call them home. A woman of deep faith, she enjoyed attending the Woodstock Freewill Baptist Church where she was a member.
