The family would like to thank Legacy hospice, especially Kevin and Bud, who she became very fond of during the last 3 years, along with many other assistants who provided cares for our mom. We don’t know what we would have done without their wonderful care. At Louise’s request there will be no public service. A private family service will follow in October. Louise will be interred next to her husband in the Marsing-Homedale Cemetery. If roses grow in Heaven Lord, please pick a bunch for me. Place them in my Mother’s arms and tell her they’re from me. Tell her I love and miss her, and when she turns to smile, Place a kiss upon her check and hold her for a while. Because remembering her is easy, I do it every day, But there is an ache within my heart that will never go away. Condolences may be sent to Service Information
