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.
