Louise L. Williams, 91, passed away on January 8, 2022. She was born on March 19, 1930, in St. Edward, Nebraska to Robert Walter Horn and Ada Gertrude (Kane) Horn. Louise was one of seven siblings (Don, Dale, Jim, Kenneth, Lola, Baby Ruby and step siblings, Alvin, Eileen and Helen).
Louise was raised in Kansas City and graduated from Northeast High School.
In 1949 she married Ben R. Williams whom she had met working as a waitress at the Forum Cafeteria. Ben and Louise had one daughter, Denise Lou (Williams) Cooper.
She retired from the Gas Service Company where she served in the customer service department. Shortly after retirement she accepted another job as grandma to Brian and Aaron who were truly her pride and joy.
Louise was an exceptional seamstress and loved to needlepoint and knit. Holidays were filled with her divinity, fudge and beautifully knitted Christmas stockings.
Trailer camping adventures were a large part of Ben and Louise’s life, and summers were spent at Deer Valley Park, Lake of the Ozarks boating and enjoying campfires with their many Deer Valley friends.
Retirement years were spent traveling to the warmer climates of either Loughlin, Nevada or Texas where their lifelong friends would gather.
Louise always looked forward to the Horn Family reunion at Big Lake in Missouri and loved spending time with her brothers and sisters and their children.
She is survived by her husband of over 70 years (Ben Richard), her daughter Denise Lou (Chris) and her grandson (Aaron Benjamin). She was proceeded in death by her grandson (Brian Christopher).
