We are so sorry to hear of Louise's passing, but know she had such a full, good and eventful life. We enjoyed her personality and stories about nursing and her time with her husband down in Montgomery, AL. Every time we saw her when we visited Janie's mom, Faye Adams, at the Summit, we would talk about her nephew, Lee Aylor, who went to Lynchburg College with us fifty years ago. Our condolences to her family for such a special person.

I always loved my visits with Louise. Her and I would go grocery shopping together at the Dollar Tree. I remember one particular day I asked her what was her secret to longevity. She replied, "I don't eat donuts". Haha...we both had a laugh together. Will miss her!

even Although I did not meet Louise until she moved to The Summit Independent Living in August 2003, we had many connections. I had known Carrie Tate for years, had taught Louise Aylor in the seventh grade, and had been in college with her sister-in-law, Caroline. During Louise's last years in skilled care, I would say "hello" to her occasionally when I went to volunteer. My blessings. Virginia Marshburn

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Louise. I got to know her when she lived at The Summit Independent Living. She was a wonderful woman and I enjoyed immensely listening to her talk about her life and interests. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time.
