"Louise was my Aunt and some of my best memories of her were when I was in HS and studying Drama and she would have me over to her house to "coach" me for any upcoming plays or competitions.  What a GRAND lady she was! And yes, she did it her way...always with class and charm.  A woman of total respect and a sense of humor that could put you on the floor. Definitely will be missed by us all"

"I was always baby sister. We 4 siblings had to leave home very early to find jobs during the Great Depression, so I knew my sister, Louise, ONLY through her letters that Mother saved as I grew up.  Despite the hardship, Louise managed to create a beautiful life.  She never took her eyes off the goal, and she succeeded. She was beautiful inside and out."
