Louise loved her family, friends, flowers, felines, farmers and firemen. Many frequented her table for a home cooked meal, a laugh and a never ending cup of coffee, her home was known as “the coffee house”. Louise never knew a stranger or stray, all were welcome, her heart was always full of compassion for the weakest souls that found their way to her doorstep. She earned the name Grandma Kitty from her great grandchildren and wore the name proudly. Her determination to give, encourage and care for others will be her legacy.
