From 1965 to 1969 she was employed at McCoys Department Store.

She was the proud grandmother of Jessica (Michael) Born of Lomira and Laura Stimac of Wauwatosa; sweet great-grandmother of Emily Rose Born; and the dear sister of William (Vivian) Johnson of Pierre, S.D. She is also survived by her nieces, Paula (Jack) McGee of Ohio, Susan (Tom) Armbruster of Minnesota and Pamela (Don) Templeton of South Dakota; nephews, Rodney (Joyce) Johnson of Iowa, Terry Johnson of Nebraska and Jeffrey (Dona Mae) Johnson of South Dakota; and other relatives and friends.
In addition to her parents and her husband, Hayden, she was preceded in death by three brothers, Walter, Victor and Paul Johnson, and an infant sister.

Louise was immensely devoted to her family. She enjoyed sewing, cooking, baking, gardening, and most of all, spiritually guiding her family. Teaching Sunday school was her greatest joy in serving her Lord. She also did much "behind the scenes" service to friends and neighbors. Thanks Mom for the fine example of a Christian life.
Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.- Proverbs 31:30
