Louise was a loving mother, grandmother, and sister who loved her family dearly. She was a woman of uncommon character, beauty and grace; and to those who knew her, “an instrument of God’s love on this earth.” Being a friend to all, Louise was a strong yet gentle presence who looked for and encouraged the best in everyone. She was a shoulder upon whom many found comfort and support. Most of all, Louise was a woman of faith and believed in the power of prayer. Her life provided an impeccable example for her children, family and friends over the years. Louise will surely be missed, but cherished memories of her will forever remain in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.

A celebration of Louise’s life will be held at 3:00 pm on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at Wallace Pentecostal Holiness Church with Pastor Bobby Smith and Pastor Ronald Ginn officiating.

The family will receive friends from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm, one hour prior to the service on Saturday in the church sanctuary and at other times at the home of Luke and Teresa Bradshaw.
