Birth: Oct. 29, 1931
Wetzel County
West Virginia, USA
Death: Dec. 25, 2011
Glenn County
California, USA

Loris Talkington was the youngest daughter born to Robert and Carrie Talkington in Folsom, West Virginia on October 29, 1931. On December 20, 1947, she took the hand of Howard Shreve in marriage, and became known as Louise Shreve. Louise held Howard's hand until she passed on December 25, 2011. They held hands as they moved West to Whittier, California in 1959, to Butte County in 1969 and landed in Glenn County in 1973, where they remained until she passed.

During their 64 year marriage, Louise was the loving mother to four children, who survive her: Margaret Kemp-Williams of Colusa, Michael Shreve of Corning, Mark Shreve of Bonners Ferry, Idaho, and Maureen Shreve of Portola; the loving grandmother to eight grandchildren: Darryl Paul Shreve, Army Captain Kara Beattie of Waianae, Hawaii, Mark Shreve Jr. of Tucson, Arizona, William Shreve, Erica Gibson of Corning, Lori Kemp of Seattle, Washington, David Glover of Susanville, and Christian Landreth of Sacramento; and loving great-grandmother to eighteen great-grandchildren: Kristina Babcock of San Diego, Ashlea Babcock of Colorado Springs, Nicholas Babcock of Waianae, Hawaii, Blaine Glover of Chico, Jonathon Babcock of San Diego, Derin and Lena Shreve, Cameron Shreve of Tuscon, Arizona, Kyndal Shreve of Tucson, Arizona, Cameron Martinez of Seattle, Washington, Tatum Landreth of Sacramento, Grant Gibson of Corning, Kyleigh Shreve of Tucson, Arizona, Graeson Glover of Susanville, David Glover of Susanville, Owen Gibson of Corning, and Brooklyn and Weston Glover of Susanville.

For all of us, she was defined by her loving, sharing spirit. She touched people with her generosity, sharing even when times were tough for her. She was the woman in the dollar store who offered all of your kids a dollar plus tax when you couldn't buy them something that day. She was the woman who lovingly clucked at your babies in the grocery aisles. She was the woman who struck up a conversation with you in the checkout lane. She challenged us to be friendly, open, caring and kind to those we knew and those we didn't. She taught us to honor our word above all else. Those traits shape each of us to one degree or another. We will miss her, but she will be alive in our lives and our choices for all times.
