Born May 2, 1925, the daughter of Italian immigrants Peter and Adele (Bertolino) Boggio. Preceded in death by parents, beloved husband John L., who passed away in 1992 and sister, Mary Fowler.

Louise was a registered nurse who served returning veterans in Washington DC during WWII, as an RN for several local physicians, and as the charge nurse of pediatrics at the former Miners’ Hospital in Spangler. Caring for others was her lifelong vocation as she devoted many years providing outstanding care to her family and extended family. Louise was a wonderful mother and grandmother who enjoyed the company of her grandchildren and loved to spoil them. “Manga’s house” was always special to her grandchildren. A devout Roman Catholic, Louise loved her church, the former St. Stanislaus parish, and adopted the Polish heritage as her own, especially the Christmas and Easter traditions. She was a current member of Prince of Peace. Her life was a testament to her faith and a shining example to her family. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the charity of one’s choice in Louise’s name.

The family wishes to thank the staff at Rebekah Manor, Conemaugh Hospice, Dr. Brian Lieb and Fr. Lawrence Lacovic and all those who touched Louise’s life in any way. Louise was truly an amazing person whose kindness and compassion were evident to all those she encountered.
