Mrs. Louise married Thomas Raeford English in 1957 and they raised their children in Wallace. A greater part of her work career was in tax preparation as owner and operator of H & R Block in Wallace. She attended Wallace Pentecostal Holiness Church where she served as church secretary and choir director and later attended Poston Baptist Church where she assisted with the choir. While a member of Woodmen of the World, she held every office except secretary. As an avid supporter of DAR, she volunteered many hours in support of the organization. She had a tremendous interest in genealogy and spent many hours tracing family histories in the county registers of deeds and in cemeteries. She is noted as one of the few people who did not like seafood. Her love of family was the most important thing on earth and second only to her love of her Lord. Floral gifts are welcome or, as a family request, please consider a contribution to the Falcon Children's Home in her memory.
