Louise spent her life serving her family, friends, and community members.  She loved, cared for and worried about each and every one. Having eleven children, she learned to cook for a crowd.  Family members couldn’t wait to get together to enjoy a good time with good food and always requested her homemade chicken and dumplings and potato salad. For many years, Louise managed the local Frisch’s restaurant in Wilmington, Ohio where the community got to know her and love her.  She was a hard worker and was always “willing to hire and give anyone a chance.“ She also served many elementary school children as she worked in the cafeteria at Roy E. Holmes elementary for several years.

She was a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints where she held numerous callings and exemplified the teachings of the Savior as she served the members of the congregation.  She was always calling someone to check on them, providing a meal to someone in need or doing whatever it took to make sure other’s needs were met. As Louise lived her life, she set an example of working hard, taking care of, and serving others.  She was loved by many and will be greatly missed.

My sincere condolences to the Goldie and Albers families. Louise was always very kind to me and generously gave me some amazing life lessons. When I think of great women who exude tremendous strength and poise, she is and will always be at the top of that list.

Sister Albers was as down to earth as any one person could be, not concerned about getting her hands dirty while helping others. She extended her love to all who attended the branch of the church where I first got to know her. Rest in Peace, you are going to be missed by many and welcomed by many on the other side. Thank you for all you did for others including me.
