Louise was a true Southern lady who lived her life with dedication to her faith, her family, her friends and her church. She counted her children along with their expanded families her richest blessing in life. Louise was a diligent homemaker and with a joyful spirit filled her home with love, good cooking (especially her biscuits) and welcomed all who entered.
