I met LouAnn a few years ago through a mutual friend,Jan Postier. LouAnn was very warm and welcoming and had a great laugh. My husband Chip and I remember doing a 1day bus trip with Jan and LouAnn up to the new Viking Stadium when it first opened. We got a behind the scenes tour and being the Viking fan she was, she loved it! We even got pictures of us on the 50 yard line. We were hoping more travel trips would be ahead of us. But not meant to be. So glad we have this special memory of her. She was a ‘sweetie’.

Sharon, I extend my sympathies to you in the loss of your mother. My prayers and hugs are with you at this time.
I am sorry to read that LouAnn has passed.... I know she has been met by the open arms of Jesus. May you find comfort in that truth. No more sadness, sickness, worry, or pain. She has so much going on, I am sure:) Even still! I always enjoyed my visits with LouAnn~~~never without good conversation ( politics, religion, family, housekeeping/vacuuming, and The Ripe Olives:)~~ We would pretty much touch all of the bases! May God bless you with His peace. My condolences to you, the Family.
I also knew LouAnn while working at the Pain Clinic. She had wonderful sense of humor - no one could tell a story better than her. I feel she left us too soon. We will surely miss her. My thoughts are with you Sharon and family. Carolyn Nereson
I worked with LouAnn in the Pain Clinic for many years and was saddened to hear of her passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family. May she Rest In Peace.
