Florence Louise Aberasturi
October 2, 1936 - April 10, 2015
Florence Louise Aberasturi (Louise) passed away peacefully on April 10, 2015 after a long and courageous fight with COPD. Born on October 2, 1936 to Robert and Thelma Upham of Ashton Idaho. The youngest of three, Louise adored her brother, William (Bill) and sister, Ruth (Blondie), remaining close to Ruth until the end. While very young, her family moved and settled in Wilder, Idaho, where Louise went to school graduating from Homedale High School.
Louise met David Aberasturi while in school, and they married shortly after graduation. Their union produced five boys, Anthony (Tony), Kelly, Richard (Rick), Mitch and Julian. At the time of her passing, Louise had been blessed with 14 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren (with four more on the way!!).
Always good with numbers, Louise made her mark in banking working for First Security and later with Wells Fargo. She took great pride in her work, and the independence and security her work provided for her. Louise always dreamed of owning her own home, a goal she fulfilled when she purchased her home in Meridian. She saw the potential in the little house and turned it into a beautiful home with her vision, and a great deal of help from her boys, and nephew-in-law -Ralph.
Louise loved her boys, even when we were young and wild. She watched proudly as we became men, welcoming daughters-in-law (Robin, Kathy, Sherry and Gayla), and each of her grandchildren (John, Ty, Cody, John, Rebecca, Chris, Emily, Sierra, Seth, Kristen, Ryan, Curtis, Carter and Gabby) and great-grandchildren (Madelynn, Logan, Faith, Destiny, Derek, Morgan, Katelyn, Matthew, William, Allie, Aiden, Oliver, Mikaiala, Roary, Elizabeth, Dominic, Skyler, Davin) with an open heart. Louise suffered the great loss of losing a child when Tony was laid to rest in Wilder.
Louise is lovingly remembered by her family and preceded in death by her parents, brother and son. It is Louise's wish to be laid to rest with her family in the Wilder Cemetery. Louise will be laid to rest with a graveside service at 11:00 a.m., Friday, April 17, 2015 at the Wilder Cemetery followed by a remembrance luncheon at the Basque Center in Homedale.
The Aberasturi family would like to thank the staff of Alpine Meadows Assisted Living, and Legacy Hospice for the wonderful care they provided to Louise in her final days.
In lieu of flowers, being a life-long dog lover, mom would have appreciated your donation to the Idaho Humane Society in her name. idahohumanesociety.com or contact Chris (208) 387-2760.
