Louise Katherine Bunn passed away peacefully on July 21, 2021, in Colville Washington.
She was born Louise Katherine Ringer in Potlatch, Idaho, on July 8, 1926.
Louise married Dick Warren on March 13, 1945, and lived a short time in Palouse, Washington, before moving to Spokane, Washington.
They had two children, Keith Warren (Sherry) and Pam Douvia (Gary).
She is also survived by three grandchildren: Brande Adams (Dan), Kerry Warren (Kristie), and Wendy Warren.
She was blessed with six great-grandchildren and her first great-great-grandson will be arriving in August.
Louise married Will Bunn on Oct. 13, 1962, and happily enjoyed 22 years together until his early death Nov. 20, 1984. They traveled and had great adventures together.
Louise was a special, independent and classy lady. She was a hard worker who held various jobs at Zukors, Sears, and Montgomery Wards.
One of her favorite jobs was at Chet's Food Store, original home of Egger's Meats. Her last employment was with her husband, Will, at URM Cash & Carry. She was very well liked and truly unforgettable by many.
Louise loved gardening, reading, crossword puzzles, cribbage and her family.
She moved to Colville to be closer to her daughter, Pam, and made wonderful memories on Lake Roosevelt with all of her family.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Louise and Anna Ringer; and siblings: Ruth Nirk, Bill Ringer, Norman Ringer, and Betty Stewart.
She surely will be missed by so many, but we know she is so happy to be reunited with friends and family who have passed before her.
We know you are up there with your Black Velvet and water and a BIG smile…cheers to you Mom!
