Louise “Lou” Ellen Killip, 73, passed away with her loving family by her side on Saturday, September 2, 2023. There will be no services at this time.
Louise was born on January 9, 1950 in Great Falls, MT to Albert and Esther Larson. She was a lifetime residence, attended CM Russell High School and graduated with the class of 1968. She went on to pursue a career in the art of hairdressing, eventually becoming an instructor at Dahl’s College of Beauty. After years of raising Angela as a single parent, she met James Killip. They decided to take their wedding vows in Coeur D’Aline, ID on November 26, 1993. From there, they grew their own family with which she shared many wonderful memories with. They were married for 30 years before Louise’s passing.
Louise was a very artistic person. Alongside her passion for hairdressing, she was really big on any and all crafts. She enjoyed playing Bingo (and enjoyed winning even more) with her friends followed by their infamous coffee dates. If she wasn’t focused on those Bingo dots, she could be found nose deep in one of her books. Her taste ranged from puzzle books to romance novels. Louise’s biggest pride was her large family. She enjoyed their picnics and holiday dinners where everyone got to mingle and share their love with one another. Her family will relish in her memories for years to come.
Louise is survived by her husband, James L. Killip; her daughter, Angela K. Pratt (Austin, TX); her sisters, Joyce (Jack) Dresel (Puyallup, WA), Linda Larson (Great Falls, MT), Mary (Gary) Daniels (Springfield, MO), and Grace Larson (Great Falls, MT); Grandsons, Ryan Prat (Lith) (Richmond, VA), Hayden Pratt (Austin, TX), and Connor Pratt (Billings, MT); and one Great Grandson, Ren T. Pratt.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Albert and Esther Larson; and her brothers, Dale Larson, Gerald Larson, and Vern Larson.
