Louise was married to Lewis for 56 years and together they enjoyed many road trips to visit family and friends, playing crib, dancing and golfing at Fish Pond Golf Course. They lived in Upper Musquodoboit and raised three adopted children. Mom devoted much of her life to serving her church and community. She was a member of St. James UCW, the Legion, Fellowship Club, and was a lifetime member of Eastern Star.
