to so many.
Lou was a family person who embraced the time with
her brothers and sisters. From monthly outings, to
large family dinners where there was always great
conversations filling the room. Lou was the greatest
wife, mother, and grandmother. So selfless in all
that she did to care for her family. Always a home
cooked meal for family dinners. She loved being with

grandchildren grow. The memories created are
endless. She will be remembered for her jokes and
