Louise attended Tifton Schools. After leaving school, she married Geoffrey H. Botton and moved to New Jersey. She then returned to Tifton, finding employment with Southern Bell Telephone Company and Dr. Paul Lucas. Louise enjoyed spending time with her family, specifically her three grandchildren, who called her "Granny". She also found joy in watching and listening to her beloved Atlanta Braves and reading. She was an avid hot tea drinker, believing a good cup of tea was a great way to start the day. She was selfless in all of her acts and showed compassion and love to everybody she encountered. The communities around Louise adored her.

Louise was one of the most beautiful people I have known. She was extremely welcoming to me from the start is the family and was a great hostess during my visits to Tifton.

I especially enjoyed visiting her in the late 1990s when I came to Tifton for work.

Condolences to all the family. I regret that I am in California this week.
