    My mother-in-law, Alice Walter, was a dear friend of Louise’s. After Alice remarried and moved to Pittsburgh, her husband Henry would take her to Greenville to visit her dear friends and Louise was one of the first stops. I remember visiting her with Alice on High Street. She was a beautiful, loving soul. Her kind spirit is with the Lord soaring above the clouds and ever present in a beautiful rainbow, a bird, a flower or the sunshine. May God Bless and comfort you. My deepest sympathies.

    Louise was a dear cousin on my mother’s side. I always loved her from the time I can remember. We would come from Ohio to visit my mother’s sisters in the Pittsburgh area and stay at my Aunt Mary’s. Even back in the 1940’s I remember Louise being so nice to her little cousin. I have many great memories of Louise being so gracious as a host when she would have family reunions there at her home in Greenville. Just last year we shared a sad situation in life as we lost our daughter Allison. I talked to Louise knowing she could truly share our sorrow and loss. She lived a long life but I know you will certainly miss her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Louise was a cousin to my husband Perry. She had us join her in reunions in the late 60’s and 70’s and was gracious and kind. I found her so easy to talk to. In the 90’s Elaine brought her to Cleveland for our daughter’s wedding reception and we shared in her birthday party at the age of 90. We visited her at St. Paul’s three times and I can still recall saying how lovely it was there and wondered how she liked it. She sweetly replied, “What’s not to like?” What a lady……kind, sweet, and in love with her kids and grandchildren.

    So sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. I have such fond memories of Louise and all of you on North High St. Ext. What a wonderful pictoral tribute to her. It brought back so many memories of Bob and Elaine walking to school and playing in the neighborhood with the Luciani kids. Remembering Melinda as well. Those were good times.
