She graduated from Jamaica Plain High School and the Chamberlain School in Boston, MA. At age 19, she married Dana L. Baldwin of West Stockbridge in l938, and divorced in l964.

Louise and Charles enjoyed their golden retirement years together, making annual pilgrimages to Saint Pete's from October to May most years, in addition to vacationing at Magnolia Bay, MA. Louise was a loving, levelheaded, soft-spoken, and caring person who brought light into the lives of many people as well as the cats she loved and cared for throughout her lifetime. She enjoyed oil painting and produced some very good artwork, many of which are hanging in the homes of friends and relatives. She was a member of the West Stockbridge Congregational Church, and enjoyed tending the garden in front of the church, as well as her own productive home garden. Her last residence was The Devonshire, in Lenox, where she lived happily for many years until moving to Buckley Healthcare Center in Greenfield. Louise's brother, W.
