Louise is staking out new real estate in Heaven.
Mom has been released from the health challenges she has endured for the past number of years. Dearly loved wife of Mark for 71 years. Loved mom of daughter Nancy (Ross Lamont) and their children Pete (wife Lisa, children Oliver and Henry) and Rebecca Tait (daughter Aila); son Jeff (Linda Johnson) and children Ashley (husband Jayme Illerbrun, children Aubrey and Jackson), Jamie Johnson (Rob Lugar, children Carter, Hudson, and Charlotte), Christopher Walbourne (Emily) and Nicolaas Preston; son Paul (Melody); and daughter Christine (sons Luke (Marc) and Jordan Maybury).
Louise was a successful real estate broker for many years under her own company. The effort she put into each transaction resulted in many of her clients becoming good friends. She was also an excellent seamstress and enjoyed knitting, preserving, and doing puzzles. She overcame many hardships and restrictions in her childhood to become an inspiration to her family, taking night school classes to complete high school , and traveling out-of-town to complete real estate courses.
Predeceased by her parents, Vittorio and Angelina Zadro, and brothers Lino (Angie) and Maurice (Frances). Survived by her dear sister-in-law, Helen Hamilton. She will be greatly missed by her nephew Rick (wife Ann) and family, and by her good friend Helen Geissinger.
The family would like to thank Melody for all of her efforts in keeping Mom at home for the past four years. Special thanks also to Dr. Marriott, the Community Stroke Team, Southampton Care Centre team, and Day Away staff. You have earned a well-deserved rest, Pinky.
