Louise was born in Cleveland on June 18, 1931. She graduated from Chester School (West Geauga) in 1949, worked for years as a waitress, first at Howard Johnson's and later at Kenny King's.

Survivors include her husband, Alan; children, Donna Cline (John) Stainkamp, Bruce (Nancy) Cline and Vicky Schieman; and grandchildren, Daniel and Emily Stainkamp and Stephen and Laurel Cline.
Louise was preceded in death by her parents, Claude and Dorene (nee Galloway) Williams; and her younger brother, Harold Williams.
