Louise loved being a stay at home mom, taking care of her two boys and supporting her husband who served 20 years in the Marine Corps. She was a private person to many people but loved her pets and all animals alike, participating in outdoor activities such as riding ATV's, fishing and camping, even helping the guys process deer and cook the venison they got during hunting season. She also enjoyed relaxing in her house watching TV series on PBS and her favorite, The Walking Dead.

She was a member of ATV Traction McKean County Chapter.

She was preceded in death by her mother Leah Leonard and sister Pat DeWitt.
