Louisea was a loving mother and a wonderful, and favorite grandmother. She loved her family and she was a good example to them. She was a hard worker and she kept her home in immaculate condition.

She was widowed after 30 years and lived for 28 years without her sweetheart. She supported her family by working for a dry cleaners and when they found out she could sew, they gave her jobs doing repair work on clothing and she would get paid by the piece. She would bring some of the clothes home and work on them at night while the family was having their down time. She also modeled shoes in the Auerbach's department store as well as worked in the ladies department where she was the saleslady who order their undergarments. She had some apartments she made in her home and rented them out as well. She was thrifty and knew well how to save her money for that rainy day.

As she got older, she learned to drive a car from her son-in-law Milton Ramsey. She and her daughters took a trip back East and spent about three weeks traveling. When her daughter Ruth went to Germany to work at the Embassy for three years, Louisea went to visit her and spent three months there. They spent their time traveling and seeing many famous and exciting places. She was in her seventies at that time.

Her grandchildren loved to visit her. They would play games and she always told the older grandchildren to let the younger ones win. When they confronted her and told her that she didn't let them win, her response was, "I like winning to much!" (She said it with a smile!)

She was a woman who is remembered for her kind and loving ways. She has been missed by her family and loved ones who celebrate her life with the memories she left them, and the example that still live on in their memory of her.
