Loise was a former member of the Word of Life Church and served as secretary and treasurer for many years. She most recently attended Friendship Church.
Loise was a longtime employee of the Casey Shoe factory until its close. She later retired from Marshall TRW.
She was an active mom and grandma. She was a “jack of all trades” and taught us to tackle all projects head on! She singlehandedly raised three kids and set an example of strength and determination rivaled by none. We will forever miss her smile and wit!
No services will be held at this time.
