Louise Galloway Obituary
Galloway, Louise

Louise (Mary Louise Arning) Galloway passed away on May 21, 2017. She was 99 years old, and just 4 weeks shy of her 100th birthday. Louise was born on June 17, 1917, in Springer, NM, to Arthur C. and Mamie Arning. She grew up on a farm north of Springer on the French Tract. She lived through many good times and some not so good in the dust bowl days in the 30's. She worked the farm with her dad, helped can food with her mom, and rode her horse to gather up the cows and to visit her friend down their little dirt road.

She graduated from Springer High School, and later married Robert E. (Bob) Galloway. They moved to the North Valley in Albuquerque. Bob died in 1984. She is survived by three daughters, Peggy (Carl) Wheeler, Sandy (Chris) Garcia, and Shirley Reiger and friend, Erwin Reichert; eight grandchildren, Cooper, Jeff, Greg and Brenda (Francisco) de la Pena, David (Monica) and Stacey (Chris) Hankel, Elaine (Keith) Langlois, and Tanya (Ben) Nolen; her loving brother, Charles (Kathryn) Arning; great-grandchildren, Ryan, Lauren, Madison, Olivia, Austin and Avery, Adrian, Blake, and Jeff's children; other relatives and friends, including those in Oklahoma where her dear sister, Arthie Gilmore, lived. She wrote a memoir of her life, "My Life on the French Tract" which has been enjoyed by her relatives, as well as by many others in the Springer area of New Mexico.

We would like to thank the staff of Stardust Place who took such good, loving care of mom for the past 6 years. We will miss our mom forever, but are so grateful that we had her in our lives.
