Louise Mae (Schelmeske) Haley

July 23, 1928 ~ February 7, 2018 (age 89)

Louise Mae Haley was born to Anthony and Julia Schelmeske on July 23, 1928 in Minneapolis, MN. She graduated from University High School in 1946.

Louise was an avid gardener, a wonderful cook and had a gift for hospitality. She enjoyed bowling, politics and traveling. Louise worked for Honeywell for thirteen years. She soldered parts used in the early space program.

The best thing Louise ever did was to ask Jesus to be her Lord and Savior; she transferred her eternal home from hell to heaven. If you want to see Louise again it is suggested you do the same.
