Louise was born October 7, 1926 in Varnville, South Carolina, daughter of the late John Peter Weekley and Bernice Tuten Weekley.

After graduating from Wade Hampton High School, she received a scholarship to attend the University of South Carolina. She was the first in her family to attend college. Louise earned a Bachelor's Degree and began working as a registered nurse, a career that she held for 57 years. She moved from Columbia to Charleston to help open the VA Hospital where she worked alongside most of Charleston's great doctors leading the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. She was dedicated to caring for those in need. Her children have always been her pride and joy and she always enjoyed caring for her family. She also enjoyed playing cards, sewing and watching Clemson and Carolina football games. Louise loved going on cross country trips with her husband who was a trucker. She also enjoyed weekend trips in their motor home in the fall to go see the college football games.
