Louise was a lovely, gracious lady who was a good friend to my mother who was also named Louise. They worked on many projects for Newbegun, the bake sale among the most lucrative. At one point my mother, Louise Baker, worked at Brown’s orchard culling apples. I know all of you who loved her so much will miss her. I will to. God bless you all.

Louise was one of the first people we met when we first moved to Weeksville in 1999. In fact, soon after we moved into our home, she was knocking on our front door, one of her homemade cakes in hand, welcoming us to the community. She was a wonderful person and community neighbor. We will miss her dearly. Stan & Donna Colson
