Louise was a woman ahead of her time which was perfectly obvious from the first time she attended a PTA meeting at the Cedar Bluff school. She was interesting, energetic
and not hesitant about gettin involved. She could even laugh about fording the creek to get out.I'm positive she taught all of you to meet life's challenges and deal with whatever stood in your way in a reasonable manner. There was much to be admired about this unusual woman and we extend our sincere sympathy and know she will be missed. I always wondered where she got her seemingly endless energy.
