Louise was a very special person and she loved the Lord! We would talk "Church" and Dolls together. She loved a lot of the same dolls that I did. Her dolls were/are all with original dress and just perfect. She always had a few special ones that she made clothes for and enjoyed so much. Richardson Doll Club will miss her smile and knowledge for sure! She is at peace with Jesus, and loving being with Joe and her daughter as well. Rita Bonds, June 17, 2016 Joe and Louise were such stalwart Christians...always willing to help others and work in the church family wherever they could serve. Our great pleasure was being with them on the Prestonwood Mission Home Committee for many years....hard workers but always fun, too. Our Kingdom Seekers Class will miss them both....but we will be reunited, we know! Jim and Delma Hendrix Jim & Delma Hendrix, June 17, 2016 So sorry for your loss. Pansy Wages, June 17, 2016 Louise and husband were in Kingdom Seekers Sunday School Class at Prestonwood Baptist Church with my husband and I. They were precious people and will be missed. Anna Priest (George) Anna Priest, June 16, 2016 I had the privilege of knowing and working with Louise at Prestonwood Baptist Church for many years. Most treasured memories were working on the Missionary House Committee. She and Joe were two of the most Godly people....always available for service. Ruby Saulsberry, June 16, 2016 I was fortunate enough to have Louise as a friend while in the Dallas Doll Club. She was always a bright and shining member who had the sweetest smile. We celebrated many birthdays in October for her and she would share stories of her and the love of her life, Joe. Never, and I mean never, was Louise not dressed to the nines! Always put together from head to toe and loving the purple tones. I will miss her smile, kindness and most of all friendship at meetings in the future. It won't be the same without her. Prayers to her family at this time as they were so special to her. Victoria Center, June 15, 2016
