Louise Elaine Perez, passed away on February 5, 2019 in Jacksonville, Florida. Louise was born on January 10, 1950 in Miami, Florida. She was lovingly adopted by George and Lydia Hightower.
After graduating from MacArthur Senior High School in Homestead, Florida, Louise embarked on a lifelong career working for the United States Government. Her passion to fight for the rights of others, lead her to the National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU). The nation's largest independent union representing over 150,000 federal employees, 31 departments, and other various government agencies.

Louises' drive, ambition, kindness and selflessness propelled her elevation to multiple elected positions within the NTEU. In her 30 year tenure, Louise oversaw negotiations and enforcement of multiple collective bargaining agreements, development and implementation of protest rallies and multiple employment programs.
Elected by her peers, Louise proudly served her constituents in the following roles;
· 8 Years (two terms) as Chief Union Steward
· 8 Years (two terms) as Chapter Vice President
· 8 Years (two terms) as Chapter President
Louise was known to be a no nonsense mentor and trusted advisor to her colleagues. She loved a great debate and was always ready to fight for a good cause, as she was famously known for organizing and leading national protests.
In her personal life, Louise enjoyed spending time and talking with her four children, Lydia, Eric, Ebher and Elisabeth. She also enjoyed time with her three grandchildren, Jade, Austin and Lily. Her passions in life included supporting President, Donald Trump, leading family bible studies and praying for others, cooking cuban food, watching the Godfather trilogy with her son Ebher, doing crossword puzzles with her daughter Elisabeth, going out on the town with her oldest son, Eric.

Her mentor in life was Jesus Christ. Louise was enamored with the sacrifice that Christ made for the world and everyday she challenged herself with a goal of making others smile and sharing the word of God with everyone she met. Louise wanted to get as close and as intimate as humanly possible to the Lord and was truly looking forward to meeting with him.

Our mother was one of a kind. She served as a beacon of light to many lost souls. She had a quick wit and sarcastic humor. She opened her heart and home to many people. She will be greatly missed as she was truly, the salt of the earth.

She is preceded in death by her father, George Milton Hightower. She is survived by her mother Lydia Hightower, her children Lydia, Eric, Ebher, Elisabeth and grandchildren Jade, Austin, and Lily.
Thank you for the sacrifice that you made for your children; we find comfort that you looked forward to your meeting with the Lord in heaven. We know that you are truly at peace, in the presence of God.

(Her last message to us was) - "Lol. Love and hugs to my babies"

We love and we miss you so so much.
See you in heaven Ma!
