Louise was the daughter of Anna (Bonn) and Edwin Knapp born April 28, 1921 at Devils Lake, ND. Louise attended school in Agate, ND while living with her grandparents, Martha and Fred Bonn. Louise was united in marriage to Frank Hartl in Bisbee, ND on September 26th 1939. The couple settled in Cando ND and farmed in the area until retiring in 1989.

Louise was a member of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church; an active member of Christian Mothers, and Queen Mother of Red Hats.

Louise thoroughly loved life, from long trips with her late husband, Frank, to short adventures to Casino’s with her long-time accomplice Bernice. The two were often called “Thelma and Louise” from the classic movie.

Louise loved God, family, and life; she will be fondly remembered by all who would see her driving around town in her little red ford.

Louise is survived by two Daughters; Charlotte (Vernon) of Cave Creek AZ; Sandra (Sam) of Phoenix AZ. Two Grand Children Jennifer Stam (Sean) and Brad Evans (Kayla). Three Great Grandchildren: Payton Stam, Addisyn Stam, and Grant Evans; and several nieces and nephews.

Louise was preceded in death by her late husband Frank, her mother and father, and many members of her large extended family.

What a gracious lady. Sorry for your loss, Charlotte and Sandy and families. She lived a good, long life. I found this in an old Turtle Mountain Star, in the Mylo news, November 16, 1939. Blessings to you all.

While I didn't know Louise well, I did see and talk to her a few times at the Prairie View Estates when I was in visiting my folks. She always had a smile and was fun to talk to. Such a classy lady! My sincere sympathy to the family. Norman

To the family of Louise. She was a very special lady. I always enjoyed our visits at the clinic or wherever I came in contact with her. She blessed so many others. May your precious memories bring you some joy and laughter amidst the tears. She will celebrate her 100th birthday in the arms of Jesus. Nothing better than that. God bless each of you and give you his peace. Blessings, Becky

My thoughts are with each member of Louise’s family. She was a delightful, loving, caring, sweetest of ladies! She cherished her church, family, and many dear friends. Rest In Peace Louse, you were so loved. Roger

Greg and I stopped to see Louise summer of 2020 we had such a great visit talking laughing about the fun days we shared. Time at the D&L Beauty shop, working together at church gatherings. So happy we took the time to spend with her. She was looking forward to her 100 birthday, now she will spend celebrating with our Lord.

Sweet memories of our neighbor growing up in Cando. As a kid when we had no TV, I would wait on the step until Charlotte and Louise let me in to watch cartoons. Louise would make toast and cocoa for us and be so welcoming. I must have been quite the pest. Such a pretty lady...my sincere sympathy to her friends and family. God bless her and her legacy.

Sorry for your loss of a precious soul.

We are so sorry to hear about Louise. She was such a lovely lady. She was always dressed so nice and had a smile on her face. Thinking of all of you during this sad time.
