Louise enjoyed sitting on the porch with Fred and their dog Sammy. In her younger days she also enjoyed fishing and in her later years found enjoyment through painting ceramic figurines. She was an excellent cook; her salsa being a family favorite. Raw onion was her must-have side item, and memories around the table at Thanksgiving will live on in our hearts. Her favorite pastime was playing Sudoku.

Louise dearly loved her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Her family was her heart. Granny Lou will be greatly missed. She is preceded in death by her parents; brother, Jerry Darr; and sister, Shirley Cummings.
