Louise Lena Notz Crain

HORNELL – Louise Lena Notz Crain, daughter of the late Adam and Elizabeth (Phillipi) Hack was reunited with her parents and siblings early Saturday morning December 11, 2021. Louise was born December 18, 1929, and raised in Scranton Pennsylvania before relocating to Hornell in the early 1960’s. She had resided at Elderwood in Hornell the past 18 months following a fall.

Louise attended Steuben-Allegany BOCES as an adult CNA student under the direction of Joan Watches whom she adored. She was so proud of receiving her CNA certification while remaining a devoted mother and homemaker. She was meticulous in maintaining her home always decorating for the holidays and everything in its’ place. She loved shopping especially at Wegmans and QVC, enjoying lunch dates with friends and family at area restaurants and looked forward to coffee chats with close friends Lora and Rose. Louise enjoyed sewing, ceramics, painting still life and in the past few months truly enjoyed word searches having completed hundreds of books. She was a former member of the Association and AZB Sorority.

Her daughters were the pride of her life along with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She loved hearing about their accomplishments and enjoyed listening to stories about her great grandchildren displaying photos throughout her home. Louise loved giving to others. It was so much more important for her to give than to receive. She searched for the perfect gift for each person and never missed sending send a card to others to let them know she was thinking of them.

Louise is predeceased by her parents, five siblings and her grandson in-law Kevin Lawrence. She is survived by her daughters; Nancy (Tom) Fagnan, Pamela (Bill) Schwartz and Judy Notz. Her grandchildren Lynnette (Darryn DuShane) Lawrence, Bridgette (Christopher) DuChane, Robert (Ashley) Eveland and Thomas (Logan Kidwell) Eveland, five great-grandsons, Tyler, Everett, Elijah, Greyson, Memphis and soon to arrive great granddaughter Adley. Her step grandchildren; Brittany (Jesse) Hite, Yvetta Schwartz andWilliam “Bear” (Heaven Littleton) Schwartz and step great-grandchildren Chase, Parker, and Jack.

She was such a nice lady and I can say I loved her as my friend. I will miss her and will have my fond memories of her. Rest easy Louise until we meet again. Love and prayers to her family.

  4. Thank God for memories, from the cloth doll I had Louise sign I use as a ornament on my xmas tree every year. The visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus that made you smile and laugh that memory will be forever a treasure and Porter, your daughters dog seemed to enjoy the claus visit too. Our numerous coffee and snack chats to our long talks on the phone. Our love for QVC, feeding the birds to how much we loved our family especially our grandchildren. With a heavy heart this is only a temporary goodbye, until we meet again. Louise thank you for such sweet memories. we talked a lot about our faith. Peace be with you, now that you are in the arms of our heavenly father. Love Rose

  5. I’ll always remember Louise as a genuinely nice lady with a soothing tone to her voice. I loved hearing her speak. I had the pleasure of doing her hair over the years and I truly enjoyed our conversations. It’s amazing how fast the years pass-by and the sadness of losing old friends, relatives, and those who were our classmates. Rest in peace to you all.

  6. Dear Pam,
    I’m so sorry about your Mother’s passing. She was such a lovely lady. Thinking of you with love and sympathy.
