(Friday - March 26, 2021) - Louise Emily Hohol, age 91, of Niagara, passed away on Saturday, March 20, at Emerald Bay Assisted Living in Hobart, Wisconsin.

Louise was born September 4, 1929, in Niagara, to Anton and Exilda Amond. She was the youngest of 11 children. Louise graduated from Niagara High School in 1947 and married George H. Hohol on April 23, 1949. They were married 67 years before George's passing in 2016.

All of her life, Louise was an active member of St. Anthony Catholic Church in Niagara, where she had been a communion distributor, lector, music director of the Children's Choir, Bible study leader, member of the St. Anthony Choir, and taught CCD. She also belonged to St. Anthony Council of Catholic Women, where she served as president for 12 years.

Louise was a natural leader and well-respected member of her community. In her younger years, she was a member of the National Honor Society and senior class president. She was a founding member of the Niagara Historical Society; in 1982, she was named Niagara's Citizen of the Year, and in 2013 Niagara's First Lady.

Louise had been employed for nine years in the Activity Department of Maryhill Manor nursing home in Niagara. She loved being with people, worked on funeral dinners, sang with the Smile Awhiles at nursing homes, belonged to Friends of Niagara Library and Karen's Food Pantry. She also kept meticulous records as the historian for the Amond and Hohol families.

Louise's greatest loves were God, her faith, her family and friends, and music. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Her bright smile, loving and generous nature, and her caring attitude will be missed so very much by her family, friends, community, and other lives that she touched. Heaven has another angel.

She is survived by sons Michael (Sharleen), Dennis (Kathy), Steven (Kim), Bruce (Paula), and Mark (Renee); daughters Christine (Sherman) Demeuse and Kathleen (John) Schoendorf; eleven grandchildren Tammy (Scott) Gleason, Brian (Amy) Demeuse, Michelle Hohol, David (Kate) Hohol, Sarah (Ben) Steel, Scot Hohol, Kallie (Alex) Paul, Kristie Hohol, Erica (Adam) Lester, Sonja (Bryan) Mandalfino and Valerie Hohol; 7 great-grandchildren Elisabeth, Makayla, Lucas, Grayson, Garrett, Brooklynn, and Natalie; sister-in-law Nancy Hohol; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Louise was preceded in death by her husband George; her parents; brothers Jerry (Mae), Ernest (Lily), and Earl Amond; sisters Ada (Eugene) Pilon, Anna (Leo) Hoes, Vina (Dale) Wartick, Margaret (Bill) Bates, Mary (Bob) Carlson, Claradean (Gordon) Thomas, and Gladys (Ernest) Bengston.

Michael Lightner will officiate. Burial will be in the Niagara Cemetery immediately following the funeral, after which a lunch will be served at the St. Anthony church hall.
