Dear Ernst Family, with a heavy heart filled with sadness we say farewell to , Granny. She will be forever in out hearts and mind and will be remembered as a generous, kind and strong lady. She welcomed our family, especially our daughter, Miriam, into her family without hesitation. She is greatly missed. Thank you so much for being GRANNY.

From before I met her I knew I would love her because my brother Von said he was going to marry her. He had to wait three years before he could marry her because she was in nursing school and wouldn’t marry him until she graduated. Von named his racing boats after her. The “Miss Mary Lou” on his hydro and the”0uigie” on his utility. She was the best and most loving sister-in-law anyone could ever ask for. My deepest condolences to my niece and nephews and to her grandchildren and friends. Rest In Peace Louise your beloved Von and know you are remembered and loved forever.
