I met Louise in April, 1969 at Central Bank & Trust, Farmers Branch, TX. She became a very good friend to me, and we had some great times together. She was someone you could depend on,

What an awesome lady with an incredible smile. She always made us feel loved, welcomed and special. Whether dancing, camping or just visiting she knew how to bring out the best in all of us. Comforting to know that she is reunited with those gone before but sad to know we will not get our Louise hug. God bless and keep her family. We will see her again someday.

So enjoyed our lunches together where she always brightened our day with her cheerful outlook on life. And loved the home baked cookies she shared. Her simple kindnesses will not be forgotten.

I was saddened to hear of the the demise of Louise. For several years before Ed passed away, he and Louise would attend both Webb Chapel and Louise’s Church. What a joy they were. My heartfelt condolences to the family.

Carol Bussey says:

I will always treasure memories of Louise and her family. I came to know the Nuttall’s through Louise and so many memories from there. She was always interested in anything I was doing. She was so vital and invested in her life. Love to Marsha and Craig. Thank you so much.
