Louise attended Whittier Elementary, Lincoln Jr. High, and South High School in Salt Lake City, UT. She worked at her father’s drive-in (Cummings Drive In) for many years where she made many great memories. She loved to travel enjoying the beauties of the earth, but most of all spending time with family.

Louise met the love of her life, Tom Earnest Parsons, in Salt Lake City in 1966. Louise and Tom were married on September 30, 1966 in Price, Utah. The family was later sealed December 1970 in the Los Angeles Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

They enjoyed looking for new horizons and moved to Las Vegas, NV, Faribault, MN, finally stopping in St. George, UT.

Louise was a devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and served in many church callings. The most recent calling was serving the members of the Red Cliffs Branch, specifically serving the church members at the Sterling Court Senior Center and the Red Cliffs Rehabilitation Center. Along with her husband, she assisted the elderly members in attending church meetings and in giving other tender loving care. She had a great love for the people that she served and developed special friendships. She was loved for her generous heart and gentle spirit. She was deeply loved by so many people that met her.
