Louise retired after 20 years of service from Eckhert Cold Storage in Manteca. In Louise’s younger years she enjoyed camping, fishing and going for rides on the motorcycle with her late husband. Louise cared a great deal for animals, taking in any stray cat or dog. She found happiness in cooking and watching cooking programs on TV. Being a hands-on Grandmother, she loved teaching her grandchildren how to cook and bake, which brought great joy to her. Louise loved the holidays. Listening to the laughter and excitement from her children and grandchildren brought great warmth and joy to her heart. Louise loved her family dearly and held each and every one of them close to her heart. She will be missed deeply by all who knew her.
