Louise built her life around loving devotion to Jim and unconditional love and care for their four children Frances, Debbie, Leslie and Jimmy, nine grandchildren, six great-grandchildren with one more on the way.
As the wife of an army officer, Louise enjoyed living in many places around the country and around the world. One of her favorite places being Fort Lee, Virginia where during Jim’s 30 years of service they were stationed there three times. As the wife and mother of a proud Texas Aggie, she traveled around the country following the Texas A&M football team. When their children were grown, Louise became an entrepreneur using her love for cooking to start a successful sandwich shop and catering business. Giving back was important to Louise and Jim as they raised and donated thousands of dollars to many Texas A&M projects. Louise’s faith in the Lord was unwavering. She was a long time member of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
