Clara "Louise" Richards passed away March 3, 2017, with her family by her side, after a courageous battle with cancer. Louise was born to John Lee and Eunice Overman in Goldsboro, North Carolina. One of seven girls, Louise spent her early years helping on her father's tobacco farm. She was active in her church and loved music and the beach. She knew early on that she wanted to go into nursing, and, in 1957, graduated, from Parkview Hospital School of Nursing. She then began a 30+ year career in nursing. She was an excellent nurse, working in both long-term care and acute care facilities. She was known to say that she was a better nurse than mother, but her four children would strongly disagree. She was the best of mothers! In 1957, Louise met the love of her life, Jim Richards. He was stationed at Fort Bragg, and they were set up on a blind date. It was love at first site. He was a handsome Yankee and he swept her off her feet. On January 18, 1958, they wed and moved to Pittsburgh. They had a beautiful marriage, residing in Ohio, Buffalo, and finally Baltimore. Louise's final years were spent living with her children, enabling her to be an integral part of their lives. She enjoyed watching her grandchildren race motocross and play sports. She encouraged them to be the best they could be. Left to cherish her memory are her loving children and their spouses, Charlett and Glen Talmadge, Jimmy and Terri Richards, Gary and Theresa Richards, Traci and Bob Scheppske, and grandchildren, Bobby, Colin, Megan, Glen and Mason . To express condolences, please join us on April 7, 2017, at Sacred Heart Church in Glyndon, MD. Celebration of Life 12pm to 1pm. Service at Garrison Forest Veterans Cemetery, 1:45pm.
