  1. We send our most sincere condolence on the passing of Louise. My mother, Ellen Huntley was a long term friend of LaVerne (Femmer) Hawse and I remember Mom speaking of Louise and Horace. I did not personally remember Louise from my childhood but did renew acquaintances with her at a family reunion at the Hollowell’s in Denver a few years back. I enjoyed visiting with her then. Our sympathy goes to all her family and friends.

    Incidentally, I was named after Charles Hawse, LaVerne’s husband.

  2. My Brother Don and I grew up at Bethel Methodist and have fond memories of both Horace and Louise. Horace sang in a quartet with our dad, Walter, and all of us sang in the choir.Louise was and is a precious person. Big personality in a tiny frame. Our sincerest sympathies, SWEARINGEN’S

  3. Charlene and family,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you today. May God bless you as you have been a blessing to her all these years.

  4. Charlene and Family,

    You were the special angels that gave Louise’s life much joy. Her faith witness helped pray me through some difficult times, and for that I will always be grateful. Our condolences to you on the loss of this special person. Our thanks to you all on you faith witness in caring for her all of these years.
