Louise grew up in rural Kentucky where she was one of eleven children. She worked hard even as a child, helping raise her younger siblings and helping her mother who took in laundry to help make ends meet. She moved to Cincinnati when still a teenager, where she later met Hal. Shortly thereafter they moved to Michigan and ultimately to St. Clair where they sent their seven children to Marysville High School. She was always there for her children in all their activities. In addition to raising her family, Louise worked for 15 years at Arnold’s Drug Store in Marysville, where many of her customers knew her by name.

She will be interred at Riverlawn Cemetery, Marysville, MI next to her husband. Pallbearers will be Thomas Kapanka, Ryan, Reid, Blake and Evan Goodin, Nicholas Priehs, Christopher and Joshua Westphal and Caden Ebert.

She was a strong woman, and a strong presence in the lives of her children and their families, all of whom will miss her greatly.
