Louise loved her family, her friends, and her church. She was a talented pianist and an exceptional cook and used both of these skills to show her love for others. Many will remember gathering around her piano as well as her famous family table ladened with vegetables from the family garden.
She was preceded in death by her husband E. Glenn Broome, Jr.
