Esther Louise Tweet passed away on February 26, 2016. Louise was born in Anniston, Ala. to the parents of B.C. and Bessie Esther Henderson on February 25, 1942. She was the third of five children. Louise peacefully left this world to be with her family and friends from times past but her impact remains with all of us today because of the wonderful woman, wife, mother and friend that she was. Louise spent her childhood in Anniston and decided to move to California in 1961. She raised her two children in Long Beach, Calif. and worked for McDonald Douglas for 34 years until she retired. Louise had a tremendous work ethic in addition to a caring and loving personality. Louise was the most proud of and best known during this time for her love and dedication to her children, Vikki and Lester Griffin. A friend of hers introduced her to Jerald Tweet knowing they would be a perfect fit. This friend was right and they were married in 1989 and have been proudly married for 26 years. Their marriage was filled with a tremendous love for one another and love of life. During their travels, Louise and Jerry always enjoyed St. George and have made this their home since 1997. Together they have made great friends and sincerely cherish the love and support that they have been blessed with not just this past year, but all of the years they have been here. Louise is survived by her husband, Jerald Tweet; surviving sisters, Mary Francis and Rachel; brothers, Richard and Gary Henderson; children, Vikki and Lester Griffin; children, Melissa Potwora and Jason Tweet and her eight grandchildren, Avalon, Tyler, Courtney, Olivia, Evan, Brooklyn, Gage and Chelsea and one great-grandchild, Kamilah. Funeral service will be held on March 19, 2016 at New Promise Lutheran Church, 244 S. Valley View Dr., St. George UT, 84776. The Celebration of Life for Louise will begin at 6 p.m. with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, it is requested that donations be made to the New Promise Lutheran Church Building Fund in memory of Louise.
