Louise was a very devout Christian and she loved the Lord with all her heart. She enjoyed reading her Bible and she was a strong Prayer Warrior for her family, her church and her community.

Louise enjoyed cooking and she made the best fried chicken ever, her biscuits and gravy were always a good choice as well. She also enjoyed sewing, working in the flower garden and fishing, especially bass fishing. Louise touched many lives over the years and will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband GE Brown; her daughter Brenda Brown; her sons Edgar Brown, Randy Brown, and Mark Brown; her sisters Alene Bearpaw, Christine Stevens, Ray Scott, Betty Fowler, Doris Smith, and Mary Denny; and her brother Fred Cragg.
