Obituary for Louise M. James

Louise M. James, age 95, of Foley, passed away on April 17, 2017 at the Heritage of Foley.

Louise was born on November 15, 1921 in Lynch, Nebraska, the daughter of
James and Mary Kolund. On March 17, 1943, she was united in marriage with Stanley E. James in New York City, NY. In 1946, the couple moved to their farm in Greenbush Township, Oak Park, MN. They sold the cows in 1971 and continued grain farming until 1978. They built a new home on the 97 acres they kept. Stanley and Louise had a lake home for 14 years on Big Pine Lake near Cross Lake, MN.

Louise had taught herself to crochet when she was working in New York and continued to crochet her whole life. Her and Stanley had a loving, fun relationship and enjoyed many hobbies together including dancing, fishing, bowling and camping. She will be remembered as a gentle, beautiful soul who always graced others with a positive spirit and great sense of humor.

She will be dearly missed by her half siblings, Joe Gibbs and Rosemary Plummer; along with many nieces, nephews, other dear relatives and close care takers.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband Stanley; and brothers, George, Clarence and Fred Kolund.

Visitation will be held from 10-11AM on Saturday, April 22, 2017 at Freshwater’s United Methodist Church, River Campus in Princeton. Funeral Service will begin at 11AM at the church.
