Louise Kimerer Obituary
Louise Kimerer, 93, passed away of natural causes Friday, Aug. 2, 2013. Memorial service: Will be in October in Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery in Dallas, where she will be buried with her husband, Col. Perry E. Kimerer. Memorials: Should be made in honor of Louise Kimerer to THFW Digital Mammography Program, Box 200038, Arlington 76066. Louise was living in Fort Worth at the time of her death. She was born in Dilley on Dec. 22, 1919, to William Lee and Effie Crawford. Louise's legacy will always be her contributions in art. As well as gracing fine homes all over the world, her paintings were a source for her to give back to those less fortunate. Louise was blessed with an incredibly full life. She grew up in San Antonio where she graduated with a B.F.A. from Our Lady of the Lake University. She continued master's studies in Mexico at El Instituto San Miguel de Allende and had studied with great artists all over the world. She also taught art for many years. As a military wife, she lived in the U.S. and overseas in Venezuela and France. She was the first American woman to be accepted into the Association of French Women Painters and one of her favorite paintings is displayed at the Cathedral Museum of Fine Art in St. Petersburg, Russia. She had numerous one-man and group shows in this country, France and Venezuela. She was nominated for Who's Who in the Arts. Louise has always supported women's issues and, when she could, donated paintings to raise money for women in need. In 2006, Louise donated 25 paintings to the "Puttin' On the Pink Fashion Show and Benefit Luncheon" that provides mammograms for the indigent and underserved women in Tarrant County. She also donated to the Vermont Race for the Cure and many other deserving organizations. She was preceded in death by her husband, Perry. Survivors: Son, Vincent Braun Jr.; daughter, Barbara Wolin; grandchildren, Robyn Wolin, Chad Kimerer, Megan Rogerson; great-granddaughter, Sydney Rogerson; sister, JoAnn Floyd; and nieces, Gena Rothermel and Betsy Clark.
