Oh Jeeze Louise! Wonder how many times she heard that? I really don't know where to start because there are not enough words to describe her. The bottom line is what a true friend she was. We didn't become aqquainted until later in her life when we became co-workers at Goodwill.Then we were two peas in a pod and our friendship began. The rest is history. We had each other's back but I guess sometimes it just is'nt enough. She will always be missed and forever loved.

I worked together with Louise at the Schwan's Call Center as her Supervisor. She had a heart of gold an infectious smile - later in life see her demonstrating her work ethic at Goodwill. Remember Glenn as custodial/Grounds from Schwans and Merv from SMSU May your love and memories along with our Saviour's love guide the entire family during this difficult time. Louise, you left a footprint on my heart - rest now until we meet again. With fond memories, Lu Yackley

I worked with Louise at Schwan's call center . She was always so kind- I remember bringing my 5 year old granddaughter to show her where I worked. Louise spent time talking to her. Kevin had been my supervisor at Schwan's before his death. Louise and I also shared comments about her granddaughter, Josie. Blessed be their memories. When I think of Louise I have to smile. Ginny
