Messages & Condolences
Dear Weeks Family, It is with sadness that I realize Louise has passed to be with our Lord. But I realize it is with joy that she has joined her dear Lyle. Now two wonderful, dedicated and caring people are together again. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and may God comfort each of you and give you peace.

Elizabeth and family, our sympathies for the loss of your mother. You will be in our prayers.
Thank God for Louise, else there would not have been the Woods family. You are an inspiration to all you touch, and I thank you for her and your being a part of my life.
Mrs. Weeks was such an inspirational teacher and leader! She touched many lives. My mother so valued her friendship. I’ve often thought of the time she was badly injured in a car accident and spent quite a bit of time in the hospital. She decided to read the entire Bible! This so impressed me. Quite a lady. You are in my thoughts and prayers as you mourn her passing.
Dear Elizabeth and family,
I was so sorry to hear about the loss of your mom. Louise was such a wonderful person and will be missed. You and your family are in our prayers.

Dear long time friends,
To God be the glory. Our loved one Louise
has gone to be with her Lord. Lots of good childhood memories of church activities at
EUMC and Lyle and Louises farm and fun crack-ups when Lyle would tease me. Louise and I referred to each other as Birthday buddies.
I was born on June 21 ,1969
Your family is loved and admired by all who know you.
In Christian love
