Obituary


H. Louise Crosby
Feb. 15, 1931-May 8, 2011

Louise was born in Port Huron, MI and moved to Friday Harbor, WA in 1948. She married Walt on July 28, 1948 and they remained friends and lovers until she died. Walt and Louise had four sons who were their pride and joy. In 1969 Louise found recovery through a twelve step program. It was her desire to give to others what she had been given, so in 1973 she entered the treatment field, and in 1983 formed Crosby Enterprises which she ran until 1995 when she retired. After retirement Walt and Louise, along with their dog, Chica, traveled to AZ and Mexico where they enjoyed many happy adventures. In 1998 Walt and Louise celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary by renewing their vows, followed by a trip to Europe given to them by their children.
Louise was predeceased by her parents; and her brother, Charles.
She is survived by her soul mate, friend and husband, Walt; her sons, Richard (Pam), Charles (Kim) Randall (Terri) and Patrick (Julieta); twelve grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and her brother, Bob, of Littleton, CO.
Special thanks to Denyce and Toni who were always there for her during this difficult time.
In lieu of flowers, please give a donation to any animal shelter of your choice.
A potluck, followed by memorial service, will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, May 14 at the Evergreen Unitarian Church, in Beaman Hall, 4th and Columbia, Marysville, WA.
