Sad to learn of the passing of my cousin, Louise. She and I were born in the same summer of 1939. I have fond memories of visits between our families. I am the son of her uncle Ray Herriges and Margaret LaBine Herriges. She visited us in Madison, MN occasionally, and we enjoyed trips to Milwaukee to visit her large family. There was so much to learn from those urban cousins! My sympathies and best wishes to all her family. -- Patrick Pesek-Herriges, Menomonie WI

Aunt Louise was my Godmother. I remember the stories my parents would tell me of the great times they had with your parents along with Aunt Carol,Uncle Lloyd,Aunt Mert and Uncle Connie on their yearly fishing trips. I remembered my parents 60th Anniversary when your parents came to join in the celebration. My thoughts and prayers are with you and family.
God Bless you Aunt Louise

My condolences to the Gresbach family. Louise and Don were our neighbors on Catawba Island. They were such nice people and we really enjoyed knowing them. I especially remember how nice Louise was to my children over the years. They were babies when we moved in and she always had time for them. "Miss Louise" was one of their favorite people. I will miss her smile and her positivity. God Bless you Louise.
