She was born to Leada Marjorie Groves and William "Henry" Boyce in Boise, Idaho on July 6, 1943, the youngest of seven children. Her birth name was Louise Boyce, but the family called her "Weezee". Her father died in a logging accident in November 1946, her mother was unable to keep the family together and Louise and several of her siblings went into the Idaho Children's Home. She was adopted by Eleanor and Parry Ronan around 1951. She grew up in Twin Falls, Idaho and in a Chicago, Illinois suburb.
She married Bill R. Muller on September 9, 1960 in Council, Idaho. She and Bill had two daughters, Mona Lisa Muller and Deborah Marie Muller. She later divorced.
She studied nursing and became a licensed practical nurse. She worked as an elder care nurse until she retired.  
She married the love of her life, Laurence Theodore Dusek on September 25, 1982 in Illinois. She and Larry chose to retire in Blackfoot.
She joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and enjoyed teaching classes in her Ward. She enjoyed family history research, collecting Native American artwork and traveling with Larry to Civil War battle sites. She loved to cook and was referred to by nephews and nieces as the "Cookie Lady". She was an avid Cub's fan.
She is survived by her daughters, Mona of Palm Springs, California and Debbie of San Diego, California; and two blood sisters, Toni Yeates of Blackfoot and Jeanmarie Hall of Malad.
?She was preceded in death by her blood parents; her adoptive parents; three blood sisters, Lucille, Sherry and Darleen; and a brother, William Henry Boyce, who died in infancy.
