Survived by her sister, Irene Elizabeth Ann (Watrous) Schultz of Mystic, CT and her brother, Glen Morton Watrous of Savannah, Ga, children Kathleen Louise Ponder of Woodburn, OR, George Stephen Crouch Sr. of Springfield, OR, Charlotte Fay Kardokus of Salem, OR, Stephana Jennie Crouch of Aumsville, OR, Elray Glen Crouch of Norwich, CT, and Deborah Jean Helen Crouch of Springfield, MO. Also surviving are numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren, and many nephews and nieces who loved their Aunt Louise.

Louise married her childhood sweetheart and after raising seven children, her husbandís work as an independent nurseryman took them to many places throughout the United States. Louise spoke of places such as Avery Island, LA, the beautiful state of Maine, and the numerous other sites they visited, including Canada. Upon retiring, Louise and Stephen settled in Quartzsite, AZ where they lived until moving to Salem, OR in 2005.

After Stephenís death in 2006, Louise settled in the Englewood West Apartments in Salem where she had many friends and good times. After her memory began to fail, she was lovingly relocated to Emerald Gardens Memory Care in Woodburn, OR, where she shared her zest for living with her humor and feisty attitude. A Christian woman, she never hesitated to share Godís word with others. She is deeply missed by all those whose lives she touched.
