louise suhreLouise Ann (Klipple) Suhre, 86, of Brookville, Indiana, died Tuesday, September 17, 2013 at her residence. She was born August 14, 1927 in Holyoke, Colorado, to Graydon E., and Jean Marie (Hoover) Klipple. She married Frederick Bossert Suhre on December 9, 1951, in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Louise had a life-long dedication to her family, her home and her community. She was married 61 years to her husband, Fred, and lived on the family farm with him and their children.

Louise was the child of two Franklin County natives, Jean Hoover, who grew up in what’s now called the ‘Govenor Ray’ house, and Graydon Klipple, who grew up on a farm near Blooming Grove. The family moved to the Rocky Mountains for health reasons, and Louise spent her first 24 years of life in Colorado. She loved Colorado and the West, and took many summer trips there throughout her life.

Louise earned a bachelors degree from Colorado State University, and worked at the university switchboard as an operator. She then worked as Home Extension agent for Weld County, CO. A fine cellist, expert seamstress and skilled at painting and other arts, Louise was a member of the Brookville United Methodist Church, Tri Kappa, White Plains Club, various bridge clubs, as well as a Girl Scout leader, 4-H leader, and raised chickens commercially for frying and egg production.

Left to honor Louise’s memory are her children, Gretchen Suhre of Ann Arbor, Michigan, Nancy (Dan) Schwartz of Ft. Collins, Colorado, Marilyn (Michael) Wilson of Cincinnati, Ohio, and James (Kate) Suhre of Brookville, Indiana; seven grandchildren; one great-grandchild; sister, Mary Jane Klipple of Washington D.C.; and several nieces and nephews. She was also preceded in death by her husband, Fred; her parents; brothers, Robert Klipple and Joseph Klipple; and brother-in-law, William Ferguson.   Visitation is Tuesday, September 24, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Cook Funeral Home, 929 Main Street, Brookville. Gary Wolf will officiate the service beginning at 1 p.m. Burial will follow in Maple Grove Cemetery.   Memorial donations in honor of Louise can be directed to the Hospice of Fayette Regional Health System, the Livestock Building Fund of Franklin County 4-H, or a charity of choice.
