Ethel Roche Obituary
Mrs. Ethel Louise Roche passed away peacefully in her sleep early Wednesday, August 21, 2014 at the age of 94 years and joined the love of her life again Frank B. Roche Jr. She was married for 61 years to Poppa and was blessed with life long friends and a devoted family. Louise is survived by her three children, daughter Mary Anne Finnance, sons Frank Roche III and Joe Roche. She also leaves behind two daughters-in-law, Patsy Roche and Kim Ousdahl who believed she was the best mother-in-law ever. Louise had five grandchildren Ashley Finnance, Robin Roche, Holly Roche, Andrew Roche and Stephanie Roche who have such fond memories of their sweet grandma.
Louise was born on October 16, 1919 to Everett Harrison Smith and Ethel Owens in Houston Texas and was a life long resident. She graduated from San Jacinto High school in 1937 and attended The University of Texas. She married Frank Brun Roche on May 31, 1941.
Those who knew Louise will remember her love of reading, Galveston, traveling the world and visiting museums but most will cherish her smile and her positive attitude to everyone.
A family service will be held in her honor at a later date.
