Sonora resident Louise DeFaye (Morris) Foreman, died Aug. 30 at a Sonora care home. She was 88.
Mrs. Foreman was born in Ada, Okla., to Vestal and Bertha Morris. Early in childhood, she was nicknamed "Doodle" and was called that throughout her life.
She grew up in parts of Oklahoma, Arkansas and Arizona and settled in California as a young woman. She took a job at Douglas Aircraft Co. in Long Beach during the Wold War II era. According to her family, because of her small stature, she was the perfect size for working up inside the tail sections of military aircraft as a riveter.
After WWII was over, Mrs. Foreman started a career as a manicurist in Beverly Hills. On June 20, 1952, she married Charles "Chuck" Oakley Foreman, and started raising a family in Tarzana in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California.
The family moved to San Jose in 1959, then in 1977, Mr. and Mrs. Foreman retired to Sonora. Mrs. Foreman was also known to many family members and friends as "Suzie," a name Mr. Foreman gave her from the first time they met.
Mrs. Foreman enjoyed square dancing, boating, sewing, crafts, decorating and traveling.
She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Julie and Gary Svoboda; her son and daughter-in-law, Jeffrey and Karen Foreman; and her sister, Pat King.
She was preceded in death by her parents and husband.
