I just heard of Louise's passing. I had not been in touch with her for many years, but have so many wonderful memories of attending university with her. She was a true friend, and a beautiful soul. I can only send my deepest condolences to her family and friends, with love and sympathy. I'll never forget her.

Louise's final performance with Seton Cantata Choir in November, 2016 included Eleanor Daley's Requiem, in which Louise was the featured soloist. Poignantly, the text Louise sang was a very personal account of being with a dying friend. Little did we know that a year hence she would be taken from us, all too soon. I feel privileged to have shared in friendship with Louise, going back to our teens when we often walked to school together. More recently, it was a joy to have her in Seton and to occasionally accompany her in solo performances. She was a very special individual, deeply intelligent and possessed of a very kind heart. She will be missed by many, and never forgotten by those whose lives she touched.

To the Malloch was with sadness I read of Louise's passing. I remember her as a little girl-always smiling. There are really no words to express the loss of such a vibrant young woman. Our deepest sympathies to you all.

It is a joy to know Louise and her love for music. We met playing recorders in a small amateur recorder consort but her love for singing was contagious. Her friendly encouragement helped me to start singing for which I will always be grateful to her. She shared her talent like a gift and was always simple and supportive. Her smile will always live in my heart. I am sending my love and thoughts to you Susan, all your Family and to those who knew and loved Louise.

I was so saddened to just read of Louise's illness and passing while I am away teaching voice in the US. I have many wonderful memories of the pure joy that singing brought Louise. As a long time voice teacher at the Maritime Conservatory where Louise studied voice, I was able to see many of Louise's singing performances. She was so happy while singing, an enthusiastic student, and was such a positive and supportive colleague and friend to all the singers with whom she sang in concerts and other events. I wish her family my deepest condolences for the loss of such a lovely young woman. Susan Boddie

Oh, dear, I am so sorry to hear this! Louise brightened the lives of so many around her. I remember her welcoming spirit, and how open and willing she was to work on music together for summer ACC in Nova Scotia. A beautiful, beautiful, gentle soul with a beautiful, beautiful voice. Heaven's choir has a new voice, for sure....and we will miss her very much. Sympathies to her family.

We are very sad to lose Louise so young. Neil had told me all about your family and how much they meant to him and how smart and talented they were. I remember so well the first time I met you all at Kay's place. I had never seen anyone with a head of hair quite like Louise. It was amazing! We have happy memories of her and the rest of your family. We never forget how good you were to Kay, Susan. Our hearts go out to you, Joe, Nora, Helen and all of those we haven't met yet. With much love, Neil and Claudia

My mother and I were saddened to learn of Louise's passing. She and her family lived below us on Hazelhurst Street in Dartmouth. Though we hadn't seen each other in many years, she was always a delightful person with a positive attitude. We have fond memories of her when we lived in that apartment building. Our deep condolences go out to her family, Susan, Joey, Nora, Helen and the rest of her family. From David Bustin and Eva Bustin

We knew Louise as a close friend to our daughter Joanne. When we moved to Dartmouth your family was so welcoming to her and I have always appreciated the warmth that she found there. Louise was so accomplished such a wonderful gentle soul we were priviledged to have her in our lives. She will be much missed and very fondly remembered. Our deepest condolences. - Sharon and Peter Merriam

As an alto member of Seton choir, I did not have the pleasure of sitting near Louise or of knowing her well. I do though have fond memories of her lovely singing voice for several solos and of her smiling, gentle presence and know that she will be greatly missed in our choral community. I regret that I am not able to be present to pay personal tribute to such a much loved person. Please accept my condolences. Jane Sedgwick

I used to sit near and often beside Louise in the soprano section of Seton Cantata Choir. She would always come and sit with a bounce and ready smile. Louise was without a doubt one of the nicest choristers I ever met. She will be sorely missed.
- Cheryl Greenberg
Susan, please know that I am thinking of you at this very difficult time. Memories of coffee times with our young children come easily to mind when I think of Louise, and all the years following of her amazing accomplishments. My deepest sympathy to you, Joe, Nora, Helen and their families.
- Elaine Robinson
I only met Louise once or twice but found her to be a kind and simple soul. I went to music school with her brother Joe. My deepest condolences to Louise's family and friends. Much love.

Louise was a beautiful person inside and out. When my daughter Suzanne was in junior high she tutored her in math. She was so positive and encouraging and generous with her spirit and time. My heart goes out to all of her family at this time at the loss of this lovely woman.
- Jane Oram
Louise was a wonderful friend of my family for 40 years. I will always treasure my memories of her warm smile, beautiful singing voice, and compassionate nature. My deepest condolences to Susan, Joe, Nora, Helen, and the rest of her family.
- Heather Gillis
I have always been quite shy, and Louise’s kindness and friendliness made me feel so very welcome from the first time I joined the You Gotta Sing chorus. I will always remember how caring she was, and the joy her beautiful singing voice brought to all who were lucky enough to hear her.
