She was born in Galloway, New Jersey. She attended the Egg Harbor City School System.

Louise was an avid reader and puzzle whiz. Her other passions were gardening and sewing. "Mama Louisa," as she was affectionately known, was the beloved mother of all. Her door was always open. She saw the beauty in the simplest of things -- from the shapes of clouds to the colors of trees.

Louise leaves to mourn: children, Gwendolyn Walker, Lorraine Anderson, Felicia Edwards and Eloy Ashworth; 24 grandchildren, 33 great-grandchildren; 8 great-great grandchildren; siblings, Robert, Michelle and Adrienne and a host of other family and friends. Louise's kind and gentle spirit will live on through the memories of those she loved and will surely be missed.
