Louise is survived by her son Donald (Martha) Troutt, brothers Haskell and Gerald McCormick, grandchildren Chris (Tracee) Troutt and Dana Gilley, six great-grandchildren, as well as one great-great grandchild.
Louise, along with her husband and son, moved to Gallatin in 1946. Louise worked for the Genesco Shoe company for 37 years up until her retirement. Although she stopped school herself in the 9th grade, she went back and hit the books with the help of her granddaughter, Dana, to accomplish passing the High School Equivalent Exam and receive her GED. This helped her to become a substitute teacher at Shafer Middle School, here in Gallatin, Tennessee, after her retirement.
Louise was a devout Christian, who strongly loved God, her family, and her church. She was a charter member of the Gallatin Church of God of Prophecy, which she helped establish locally in 1958. Louise served many roles in church including Youth Leader, Sunday School Teacher, Clerk and Treasurer, Church Custodian and member of the choir.
Louise loved music, gathering with family, cooking wonderful meals accompanied by multiple desserts and reading her Bible. Louise had a servant’s heart. She believed in hard work, selfless dedication to those she loved, and the importance of being a Christian witness in the community.
