It was an absolute pleasure working with Louisa at Mennonite Home. I'll always remember her as one of the kindest people I have ever known.

I worked with Louisa at the Mennonite Home for 10 years. I learned so much from her when I first got there and loved working with her. She always had a great smile. We had lots of laughs during those years. One time she made popcorn in the microwave and when she opened up the bag the steam when upwards, setting off the fire alarm which brought the fire trucks to the nursing home. So her next birthday we gave her a plastic fireman's hat and hatchet. Loved her and loved working with her. Pat Eckman RNBSN
